I am using the (amazing) Advanced Custom Fields plugin. This is for users to upload their posts without seeing the regular WordPress post interface.
Everything works, except for one thing. I need to match the custom field I have created for 'title' to the default WordPress title. I can hide the WordPress title and show mine using
<?php the_field('project_name'); ?> however, this does not affect the slug of the page. That means the URL is always ..../2013/01/26/auto-draft-8/ for example - it always saves as auto-draft.
How do I get my custom title to be (a) the slug and (b) the title of the page without adding in my PHP? (a) is the most important one.
