  • @joelstransky Tried your last code and her is what happened:

    -it created 3 revisions? only the first one has the changes, the other 2 didnt hold the meta

    – It through errors few times, the first was a loop of all the feilds like this:
    Notice: Undefined index: field_55fee582b1b7e in F:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\hot\wp-content\themes\hand-theme\functions.php on line 111

    and last line error was:
    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at F:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\hot\wp-content\themes\hand-theme\functions.php:111) in F:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\hot\wp-includes\pluggable.php on line 1171

    the line:111 is this (of your code):
    update_field($field_name, $_POST['acf'][$v], $revision_id);

    -Finally I got simller error to the one I got when using the code+plugin
    version in F:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\hot\wp-content\plugins\advanced-custom-fields-pro\core\revisions.php on line 272

    Hops that helps.

  • I’ve tested the plugin, and did a small changes to make it loop through all the meta fields in the post “I have many”

    function add_meta_keys_to_revision( $keys ) {
    	$fields = get_fields();
    	if( $fields )
    		foreach( $fields as $field_name => $value )
    			$field = get_field_object($field_name, false, array('load_value' => false));
    			$keys[$count] = $field_name;
        return $keys;
    add_filter( 'wp_post_revision_meta_keys', 'add_meta_keys_to_revision' );

    it works fine, however im getting error in the revision page

    version in F:\EasyPHP-12.1\www\hot\wp-content\plugins\advanced-custom-fields-pro\core\revisions.php on line 272

    also I noticed I have 2 revision every time i make a modification one with no meta-data and the other with.

    I hove the next update will have a fix for this old bug based on this plugin

  • Yes, or the group of fields, actually anything can tells me there is an update, add/remove happened

  • Sorry for the late replay, I had exams.

    Well, I don’t think what I want is possible to make it into add-on because it consist of multiple field types including a default one.

    Thanks for your help anyway.

  • Hi, I believe i’m doing both!

    I want to create an add-on for AFC to create a new field type, however when you assign that new field to a (eg. post), I need to show a repeater (per-defined) of a new field type and use it’s values to create a custom front-end output.

    – To give an example, I want to create a calendar plugin, that can be assigned to any post type.
    – It will have a repeater to add events (repeater of text(title), date&time(the new field type) )
    – Then in the output will show the calendar with its events

    At the moment I have done that by creating theme templates, CPT and exporting ACF code inside the theme, which is utilizes ACF as you said.

  • Hi Jonathan,

    After some testing I found that the second function is doing nothing!, everything going through the broken function (inc the status of a new post!), so i removed it.

    now this is what I have in function.php using the codex link u posted

    works perfectly fine

    //for new and updated post status 
    add_action( 'acf/save_post', 'update_existing_post_data', 10 );
    function update_existing_post_data( $post_id ) {
    	if ( ! wp_is_post_revision( $post_id ) ){
    		// unhook this function so it doesn't loop infinitely
    		remove_action('save_post', 'update_existing_post_data');
    		// Update existing post
    		$post = array(
    			'ID'           	=> $post_id,
    			'post_status'  => $_POST['acf']['field_55dd90c79e8a6'],
    		// update the post, which calls save_post again
    		wp_update_post( $post );
    		// re-hook this function
    		add_action('save_post', 'update_existing_post_data');

    Please if you can see anything wrong with this point it out as this is not the first time I need to change this part again!.

  • Amazing I didn’t know about it!. thanks

  • Thanks, Ill be waiting for that so badly.

  • Forcing revision didn’t help saving the the ACF in the revisions, still only the title + content. In the link you posted there is someone having the same bug! lets hope the developer can patch this soon.

    I recommended this plugin for my organization as the best solution for our websites, hopefully this wont fail me that quick 🙁

  • Thanks for the link, ill go through it and see if I can find a way.

    Do I need to report this bug ? or the developers aware of it now ?

  • Thanks, Please let me know on this as it is essential matter in my project and waiting for this.

    If there is way to force WP to revision the post I would love to know it.


  • Great thanks,
    Is it possible to point me to some tutorials/example on what I need to do please. Im confused :\

    What is the right hook to call “acf_form” with ? the only one that worked for me is “the_content”, but it load the form before the post!. is it possible to make editing a post happens if a different page?

    Also, I cant figure out how to do the “Save and continue later”, the post hide as soon as I save it as draft or pending….

  • Thanks John, I think I know what I need to decide now 🙂

  • Thank John,

    For number 3, can I do something like letting a group of users can edit specific posts based on some “custom” data in there profile managed me the admin “maybe”. Or any other solution for this matter.
