My acf_form is saving to the database but not showing up in the admin panel unde

  • When I fill out the form on the front end, it saves to the database (confirmed through phpmyadmin) but does not show up in the admin panel. Custom Post type:

    function custom_post_dog() {
      $labels = array(
        'name'               => _x( 'Dogs', 'post type general name' ),
        'singular_name'      => _x( 'Dog', 'post type singular name' ),
        'add_new'            => _x( 'Add New', 'book' ),
        'add_new_item'       => __( 'Add New Dog' ),
        'edit_item'          => __( 'Edit Dog' ),
        'new_item'           => __( 'New Dog' ),
        'all_items'          => __( 'All Dogs' ),
        'view_item'          => __( 'View Dog' ),
        'search_items'       => __( 'Search Dogs' ),
        'not_found'          => __( 'No dogs found' ),
        'not_found_in_trash' => __( 'No dogs found in the Trash' ),
        'parent_item_colon'  => '',
        'menu_name'          => 'Dogs'
      );
      $args = array(
        'labels'        => $labels,
        'description'   => 'Holds our dogs and dog specific data',
        'public'        => true,
        'menu_position' => 5,
        'supports'      => array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'comments' ),
        'has_archive'   => true,
      );
      register_post_type( 'dog', $args );
    }
    add_action( 'init', 'custom_post_dog' );

    	);
    
    	  acf_form( $options );
  • Is this exactly where and the order that the code appears on you page? or are you just leaving out the code in between. https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acf_form/

    acf_form_head(); must be placed before any HTML is generated. Generally before get_header(); in your template or in your header.php file something like this

    
    <?php
    /**
     * The template for displaying the header
     *
     * Displays all of the head element and everything up until the "site-content" div.
     *
     * @package WordPress
     * @subpackage Twenty_Fifteen
     * @since Twenty Fifteen 1.0
     */
    
     acf_form_head();
    
    ?><!DOCTYPE html>
    

    It may be saved in the database, but is it save to a post_id with a post type of “dog”?

  • I figured it out…

    
    'new_post' => array(
    						'post_type'		=> 'dog',
    						'post_status'		=> 'published'
    					),

    …”published” isn’t a post_status option. “publish” is…

  • Thanks, John! That wasn’t my issue, but I’ll move it just to be safe!
