Issue with Live edit and ACF pro

  • Hi, I am having an issue with live edit. I have followed the instructions but can’t get it to work. How would I add a live edit function to each element in the below loop? The loop contains a heading, some paragraph text and an option to choose the column width. I want all these to be editable in the fontend. The other alternative is to use ”acf_form()” But I would need to assign an individual form to each element is that possible? Cheers

    <?php   // check if the flexible content field has rows of data
    if( have_rows('add_content') ):
         // loop through the rows of data
    while ( have_rows('add_content') ) : the_row(); ?>
    if( get_row_layout() == 'heading' ):?>
    <h1 class="content-heading"><?php the_sub_field('heading');?></h1>
    elseif( get_row_layout() == 'paragraph_text' ): ?>
    <div class="<?php the_sub_field('choose_column_width');?>-col">
    <?php the_sub_field('paragraph_text');?></div>
    <?php ;
    else :
        // no layouts found
  • Hi @eckul,

    Thanks for the post.

    It would be a lot easier if you could make use of the acf_form() function and pass the flexible content field key to the ‘fields’ argument of the form.

    You will only need to pass the acf_form_head() function at the top of your template to handle the processing of the form data and the acf_form() function within the posts loop.

    To create a new post, the code would look like so:

    <?php acf_form_head(); ?>
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    	<div id="primary" class="content-area">
    		<div id="content" class="site-content" role="main">
    			<?php /* The loop */ ?>
    			<?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    				<?php acf_form(array(
    					'post_id'		=> 'new_post',
                                            'fields'                => array('field_key'),
    					'new_post'		=> array(
    						'post_type'		=> 'event',
    						'post_status'		=> 'publish'
    					'submit_value'		=> 'Create a new event'
    				)); ?>
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    		</div><!-- #content -->
    	</div><!-- #primary -->
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
