Test Fire acf/save_post

  • I am trying to “test fire” a post update event from within a custom post type editor, which includes several ACF custom fields including one based upon an ACF custom field type that I created. When I update one of the ACF custom field values in the editor, I expect the acf/save_post action to fire. Here is the code I have in my theme’s function.php file.

    ‘function my_acf_save_post($post_id) {
    // Chose a lower priority to ensure callback function is invoked after a post save event
    add_action(‘acf/save_post’, ‘my_acf_save_post’, 20);’

    ‘// Courtesy of Kim Sia
    // (see:
    function console_log($output, $with_script_tags = true) {
    $js_code = ‘console.log(‘ . json_encode($output, JSON_HEX_TAG) . ‘)’;

    if($with_script_tags) {
    $js_code = ‘<script>’ . $js_code . ‘</script>’;

    echo $js_code;

    I have my web browser’s inspector window open for my custom post type editor. When I alter a ACF custom field value and click “Update” from the custom post editor page, I expect to see Testing… appear in my inspector’s ‘Console’ pane. Unfortunately, this does not occur; neither is any error generated.

    Any thoughts? Thank you.
