    ‘post_type’ => ‘offers’,
    ‘meta_input’ => [
    ‘name’ => $advert_name,

  • ACF has two fields that must be present. These are the field value and field key reference.

    So for example let’s say the the field name is “gallery” and the field key is “field_123456”

    A gallery field is an array of the attachment ID values from the media folder

    
    'meta_input = array(
      'gallery' => array($attachment_id), // field value
      '_gallery' => 'field_123456' // field key reverence
    )
    
  • Cool thank you so much
    and how send files to wp media library from custom form (no plugin)?
    drag and drop plugins maybe
    help please

  • if the image has a URL then you can use https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/media_sideload_image/

    If this is not the case then you would need to get the image file from $_FILES in PHP and manually add them to the image folder. https://rudrastyh.com/wordpress/how-to-add-images-to-media-library-from-uploaded-files-programmatically.html

  • Hello
    Help me please
    I used wp_insert_post to create new post in cpt
    what needs to be sent to the field “meta_input” add to Data Picker in ACF?

    My code like this

    $advert_name = $_POST[‘advert_name’];
    $advert_rent_date = $_POST[‘advert_rent_date’];
    
    $advert_new = [
    ‘ID’ => ”,
    ‘post_type’ => ‘offers’,
    ‘meta_input’ => [
    ‘name’ => $advert_name,
    
    ‘date’ => $advert_rent_date
    ],
    ‘post_content’ => $advert_desc,
    ‘post_title’ => $advert_title,
    ‘post_status’ => ‘pending’
    ];
    
    $post_id = wp_insert_post($advert_new);
  • As I said in my first reply. You also need to set the field key reference. You are setting “name” and “date”. your also need to set “_name” and “_date” with the correct field keys. The value for “name” is working only because it is a simple text type field. A date field will not work correctly without the field key reference. In addition to this the date must be in the format YYYYMMDD
