This action allows you to hook in after the form saves data to a new or existing post, making it useful to perform additional functionality when adding or updating your posts.

Important: this hook will only be fired when saving a post. If you are saving user data, please use frontend_admin/save_user.


do_action( 'frontend_admin/save_post', $form, $post_id );
  • $form (array) The form settings, including $form[‘record’][‘post’] which contains all of the submitted post fields’ data.
  • $post_id (int|string) The ID of the post being edited.


Send email after post is saved.

add_action('frontend_admin/save_post', 'my_fa_save_post', 10, 2);
function my_acff_save_post( $form, $post_id ) {
    //get important fields
    $post_content = get_post_field('post_content',$post_id);
    $post_title = get_post_field('post_title',$post_id);
    $email_address = get_field('email_address', $post_id);
