acf/save_post not triggered until manual update
I'm using acf_form to create a post like this:
<?php acf_form(array( 'post_id' => 'new_post', 'post_title' => true, 'new_post' => array( 'post_type' => 'books', 'post_status' => 'publish' ), 'fields' => array('field_5fb2a66de25ba', 'field_5fb009504f235',), 'submit_value' => 'Create Book', 'html_submit_button' => '<input type="submit" value="%s" />', 'updated_message' => ("Book submitted",)
Everything works except my acf/save_post function does not trigger until I manually edit the post and update it. Here's what I'm doing in acf/save_post:
$key_word = get_field('field_5fb2a66de25ba', $post_id); update_post_meta( $post_id, 'rank_math_focus_keyword', $key_word );
This works, but not until I manually edit and update the page.
I'm not the only one with this question. If I get an answer, I'll find the others and share the good news.
Eureka! All I had to do was change the priority on my action:
add_action('acf/save_post', 'my_acf_save_post', 25);
