  • Finally, I’ve managed to fix this myself.

    As I’ve set the form option to false, I had to manually process the ACF fields (by checking the post variables) and update the field values using the ACF function update_field.


    if ( !empty( $_POST['acf']['field_5ecb0c4663b4r'] ) ) {
        $mood = $_POST['acf']['field_5ecb0c4663b4r'];
        update_field( 'field_5ecb0c4663bf7', $mood, $post_id );

    wp_ajax_fes_submit_submission_form and wp_ajax_nopriv_fes_submit_submission_form are the hooks that handles Easy Digital Downloads – Frontend Submissions add-on‘s form submission process.

    I hope this will help someone looking for a similar solution.

  • I run into the similar issue. @olijames Did you ever find a solution to this?

    add_action('some-hook-name', 'my_modify_dd_form', 10, 3);
    function my_modify_dd_form($form_id, $post_id, $form_settings) {
      $args = array(
          'post_id' => $post_id,
          'field_groups' => array(16),
          'form' => false,
          'return' => ''
      acf_form( $args );

    Using the above hook, I am able to populate ACF fields on the front-end – submission form but the values/changes are not saving/updating even though added acf_form_head(); in the template header.
