I would like to copy also the custom fields when I duplicate an event. I found this topic in the forum (e.g. and but can’t get it to work.

Here is what I’ve tried:

function duplicate_custom_field($new_event, $orig_event) {
//duplicate custom field
$desc = get_post_meta($orig_event->ID(), 'desc', true);
if ($desc) {
update_post_meta($new_event->ID(), 'desc', $desc);
add_action( 'AHEE__Extend_Events_Admin_Page___duplicate_event__after', 'duplicate_custom_field', 10, 2 );

‘desc’ is a custom field (via acf) which should be duplicated too.

The code was correct, there was an error on a different spot.
