    I had originally created custom fields in my backend post using Advanced Custom Posts (plugin).

    Subsequently when I needed to make this post available as a frontend form, I used WP User Frontend ton re-create this post.

    Everything worked perfectly, except for the custom fields.

    How can I re-create custom fields in WP User Frontend that align to previously existing custom fields created in Advanced Custom Fields?

    when you create custom fields on WPUF, put same metakeys you already created using Advanced Custom Posts (plugin)

    I already tried this, being an obvious way of handling it.

    But it won't work.

    I used the field name (from Advanced Custom Fields), and added in the meta key section of a new custom field in WP User Frontend, but it doesn't seem to work.

    Can you please test this to confirm that it will work?

    From the email you sent, did you tried giving the meta key in WP User Frontend? It should work nicely.

    I also desperately need an answer to this. I've created a custom field with Advanced Custom Fields. It is using the meta key attached_project (verified). When adding a new post from the backend, this field pulls posts from a custom post type and you can select them for use in the theme. However, when adding a Custom Field Form Element to WP User Frontend, you have to submit manual options to select from, rather than it pulling values dynamically? This will obviously not work as it should, the same way it works on the backend. Do we have a solution to this problem? Quite simply, I cannot use WP User Frontend without it pulling possible values for this custom field and posting meta values to it correctly.

    Thank you so much for your help!

    I very much also need this functionality. It is the paring of two of the best WP plugins out there. The capabilities for custom frontend admin panels would be amazing. When could we look forward to this?

    Thank you

    Hi All – We had to write a function to accomplish this. Got it working. Now that we know how to do it, if anyone needs the same done on their site reach out to ross{at}refreshingdesign.biz for custom development.
