How display fields with acf and not save them?

  • Hello friends,

    I am developing a custom theme and in some post type edit screens I need to have some fields, so I did it with acf.

    when admin fills the fields and press publish, I do something using ajax and I do not need to save any fields in wp_postmeta table.

    I mean just appearance and displaying of fields is enough for me, How can I drop fields saving process?

    Thanks in advance.

  • You can hack this by creating an acf/save_post action that runs before ACF (priority < 10)

    In this action you test test for the post type and if it is your post type you can unset the ACF data


    Alternately, if you only want this to happen for certain fields you can unset the value of that field key specifically
