I'm trying to implement some code using Advanced custom fields, to post rich posts (as in, with custom fields) from the front end. To add the new post, the code I have uses:
// Create a new post $post = array( // 'post_status' => 'draft' , 'post_title' => $_POST["post_title"], 'post_content' => $_POST["post_content"], 'post_type' => 'post' , 'post_status' => 'publish', ); // insert the post $post_id = wp_insert_post( $post ); // update $_POST['return'] $_POST['return'] = add_query_arg( array('post_id' => $post_id), $_POST['return'] );
I've noticed however, that this only creates a single/the 'original' post entry into the posts database table. In contrast, when I post the same post type from the wp-admin backend, a new post will enter not only the 'original' post into the database, but also seems to immediately create a revision entry also. The effect of this seems to be that if I update one of my frontend posts, the first incarnation is lost as the 'original' post is updated to match the latest revision, whereas in the wp-admin post, the originally created revision will still hold the very first incarnation of the post.
So, how can I replicate that behaviour on my front-end form?
