Yes, you heard right. We can create a front-end form with ACF. Let’s say, we have some users and we want them to create posts from a front-end form and those posts will be saved as Draft on the admin panel for Admin approval.
It sound’s tough but ACF makes it super easy for us.
acf_form() will do all the hard works for us.
$agrs = array( 'post_id' => 'new_post', 'new_post' => array( 'post_type' => 'post', 'post_status' => 'draft' ), 'post_title' => true, 'post_content' => true, 'submit_value' => esc_html__( 'Add Post', 'text_domail' ), 'updated_message' => esc_html__( 'Post Saved.', 'text_domail' ) ); acf_form( $agrs );
This function is going to create a front-end form for the user’s input but it’ll not save those data.
acf_form_head() is the function which going to save those data. It is very important to add this hook before
get_header(). Yeah, it sounds annoying but that’s how it works.
