"True / False" field only accept 1 or 0 in database

  • There is a problem with the “true / false” field. In the admin edit page field always show true(checked) even my database store “false”. But if database store “1” or “0” the field works like a charm.

    I’m use headless WordPress import csv file with the code, but WordPress convert “1/0” into “True/False”, I’m use custom code to fix input data.

    function my_acf_update_value($value, $post_id, $field)
        $value = filter_var($value, FILTER_VALIDATE_BOOLEAN) ? 1 : 0;
        return $value;
    add_filter('acf/update_value/name=my_field', 'my_acf_update_value', 10, 3);

    In admin edit page use field interface everything is fine.

    Maybe it’s a bug ?

    WordPress 5.2.2
    Advanced Custom Fields 5.8.3

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

  • It’s not a bug in ACF. ACF has always stored 1/0 for true false fields. The problem is with what you’re using to import.
