Relationship Add new Post

  • Hey everybody,

    does any one know if there exists a solution to add a new post in the Relationship section.
    At the moment i can only choose an available post, but not to create a new one.

    thanks,
    all the best
    Stefan

  • There are no solutions for this at the current time.

    This has been requested a lot. I understand the logic but Adding a new post from the relationship field is not something that’s going to be easy to do and I don’t think it’s something that the developer will add.

    Here’s the problem is, you’d need to create an entire WP post editor inside the relationship field or you’d just get a post with a title.

    Would you want to create a new related post without adding the content that the post supports? Setting categories and other taxonomy values?

    If the developer created a way to just add a post and all that was added was the title then the next request would be to add a way to add content and it becomes a rabbit hole that has nothing to do with what ACF is designed to do, which is manages custom fields.

  • Hey,

    is there any new infos about this feature request? 🙂

  • There is a 3rd party plugin that does this https://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-and-easy-post-creation-for-acf-relationship-fields/. Other than that I probably wouldn’t look for this to be incorporated into ACF any time soon. You could try submitting a support ticket here https://support.advancedcustomfields.com/new-ticket/.
