New to ACF

  • Hi,

    I am new to ACF and installed the plugin but I am really finding it difficult on how to make it work.

    I have created the field group with the options that I required, but don’t know how to get it to the front end so that users can submit posts.

    I basically want to create a form in the front end for the users to submit posts. I went through the tutorial “Create frontend form” but was unable to understand where I need to add the code etc.

    can you please guide me step by step on how to create a front end form.

    What I want to create is

    The form should consist of

    1) Text box
    2) A Text area
    3) Multiple upload of images
    4) Dropdown box
    5) Google map

    The user who has submitted this form should also have the ability to edit the post in future when ever he wants.

  • Hi! I also ran into trouble in getting my forms in the frontend too, went through a lot of article but couldn’t figure out the cause. maybe you checkout this article it helps

  • I figured out that acf_form() has to be in loop I.e
    <?php acf_form ();?>

  • Hi @yourgoal,

    You need to edit your theme to show the form on the front-end. To learn more about WordPress theme, please take a look at this page:
