I’m facing a quite weird problem that was not here before.
I have a big form (in admin) composed of multiple field groups. Each group contains various field types and some of them are required.
While populating the fields I was used to save draft to skip validation but now the validation is triggered even on drafts.
I tried upgrading to the latest version (5.6.0 at the time of writing) but it breaks my very customized layout (each field group is “embedded” in a vertically tabbed layout to break the form in smaller pieces) but the problem was present even with the latest version.
Luckily I kept a copy of the previously installed version (5.5.10).
I tried to see if acf/validate_save_post could do some magic (e.g. skip all the validation routines if post_type == my_cpt and if it is a draft) but I cannot see how to access the post object to get some attributes from it.
Any help would be really appreciated.
I’m struggling with the same issue here.
In my case, it happens only with v5.6.3, but not with v5.6.1…
I’d appreciate your advice!
Having this issue in 2022. Pretty bumming. =/
