Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types
[resolved] Post Title, and Conditional Custom Post Types (5 posts)

    I've read the documentation, but I'm not finding it intuitive. (i'm also new to Gravity Forms, so that may be why.)

    "Add a post title field to your form and under the advanced tab, tick the "Save As Custom Post Type" checkbox. A dropdown will appear with the available custom post types. Select the one you want."

    Do I have to have the "Post Title" field displaying in the form in order to save as a custom post type? I guess it gives the user a chance to title his form entry, but what if I want to minimize how much typing the user does?

    Also more importantly: how can I conditionally save a form into a different custom post type, depending on an option selected (for instance, into Recipes or Feedback, based on what the user selects).

    Perhaps Have a drop-down that has Recipes and Feedback.

    Then add a Post Title & Post Body linking to Recipes Custom Post Type.

    Again add a Post Title & Post Body this time linking to the Feedback Custom Post Type.

    Add some conditional logic to display these fields based on the selection from the initial drop-down selection.

    hmmmm, this is an interesting scenario that I have not thought of before. Off the top of my head, I do not think it can be done, but I will give it a try and post my findings...

    just as i suspected. GF will only allow you to add a single post title field to the form.

    This will be a cool feature for the next version though :)

    just to answer your question : yes you have to include a post title field to the form in order to save it to a post type. And no you cannot save to different post types conditionally... at this stage
