Trouble with front-end submission logic.
Using: FF with Advanced Custom Fields and CPT UI
Goal. For my clients to populate most of the site with front-end submission. I am working on three different designs for the Home Page that clients can choose from.
I have already created:
- a CPT for Home Pages to keep the different designs.
- a form for a set of data that will be displayed in a section of each Home Page design.
- a View for that form
I want to be able to use the ACF data in the FF Form. I have learned to do that in the Create Post in settings.
Here is where my logic is missing:
It seems like if I want to create an entire page via front-end submission, ALL the data (for that entire Home Page) has to be derived from that one form (and View). Is this true?
But what I would really like to do is do it in sections. For instance, I was thinking that I could have a form just for this set of data (which is created from AFC fields) and then drop that shortcode into a div of a template I have created. But in order for me to be able to link my ACF fields to the FF form, I have to Create a Post for that. I can't keep Creating Posts for each section.
It just seemed like it would be nice to be able to just add this set of data wherever I wanted via a View. Then I could create different Views based off a single form if it called for a different design.
The most important thing is for my clients to be able to add and edit from the forms for as much as the page as possible. I am thinking everything in between the header and the footer. It seems like my section idea is not feasible. Am I thinking correctly?
