Publish or draft post

  • Hi. I have got form created for members to publish post on front end. I am looking for way to make it possible to choose if you want to publish new post or save it as draft. I tried to look for solutions, but everything what I found didn’t work for me.

    thank for help

  • I have tried this, but it does’t work.. post goes to draft only.

    add_filter('acf/pre_save_post' , 'my_pre_save_post' );
    function my_pre_save_post( $post_id ) {
    	// check if this is to be a new post
        if( $post_id != 'new' ) {
            return $post_id;
         // is checkbox field checked?
        if (isset($_POST['acf']['field_601ec86a16f23'])) {
        	$status = 'draft';
        } else {
        	$status = 'publish';
        // Create a new post
        $post = array(
    		'post_status' => $status,
    		'post_type'   => 'post',
    		'post_title'  => true,
        // insert the post
        $post_id = wp_insert_post( $post );
        // return the new ID
        return $post_id;
