  • Hi @roger,

    I encountered exactly the same issue, and i’ve written a logic which does the following:

    -gets the current logged in user id
    -in a loop, get the id’s of all posts by that user
    -checks whether this specific post id is created / allowed to be edited by that user
    -if allowed, nothing happens, and edit form is loaded /
    -if not allowed, exit() and redirect the user

    here’s my code, please place it in the page in which your frontend form resides, after your “get_header()” or “wp_head()” (can’t run the loop before that):

    $user_ID = get_current_user_id();
    
    $args = array(
    	'post_type' => 'your_post_type',
    	'posts_per_page' => -1,
    	'post_status' => 'any',
    	'author' => $user_ID
    );
    
    // The Query
    $the_query = new WP_Query($args);
    
    // The Loop
    if ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    	$posts_by_user = array();
    	while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) {
    		$the_query->the_post();
    		$posts_by_user[] = get_the_ID();
    	}
    } else {
    	//echo 'no posts found';
    }
    
    /* Restore original Post Data */
    wp_reset_postdata(); 
    
    // Check and redirect if needed
    if (in_array($book_ID, $posts_by_user)) {
    	//echo "Post ID found in array";
    } else {
    	$location = get_home_url();
    	$status = '302';
    	wp_redirect( $location, $status );
    	exit;
    }

    The code is checked and working, let me know if i can help in any other way.

  • I had a similar problem with ACF 4.2.2, then i updated to 4.3.0 and it was fixed. See here:
    http://support.advancedcustomfields.com/forums/topic/authors-cant-upload-from-front-end-form/

    After a few days, and i don’t know why, i was getting the same problem again. This time i found that TML’s Themed Profiles module is causing this (which is weird because it was activated before).

    This thread solved my problem, and it might help you:

  • Hi,

    I’m joining @jaace request, “is there a way to make the file upload a drag-and-drop without triggering that modal popup so that it’s just on the page as a drag-and-drop uploader?”

    Currently trying to integrate http://www.dropzonejs.com/ library with ACF. Has anyone had any experience with integrating dropzone or any other drag and drop js libraries with ACF?

    Thanks and p.s thank you @elliot for this amazing plugin, really took my development to the next level. purchased all add-ons and will continue to do so πŸ™‚
