Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types

Map your Gravity-Forms-generated posts to a custom post type and/or custom taxonomies.

Does this plugin rely on anything?

Yes, you need to install the Gravity Forms plugin for this plugin to work.

How do I map a form to a custom post type?

  1. Add a Post Title field to your form and click on it to open the field settings.
  2. Below the "Description" field setting, you will find the "Post Type" setting.
  3. Select the desired post type from the drop down (default is "Posts").

How do I link a field to a custom taxonomy?

  1. Add the desired field to which the custom taxonomy should be mapped. Drop Down, Multi Select, Radio Buttons and Checkboxes fields are current supported.
  2. Open the field settings by clicking on the field and click on the "Advanced" tab.
  3. Check the "Populate with a Taxonomy" checkbox.
  4. Select the desired taxonomy from the drop down that appears.

How do I link the saved post to taxonomies using a single line text field?

Single Line Text fields are a great way to allow users to select existing taxonomy terms and to also add new terms.

  1. Add a Single Line Text field to your form.
  2. Open the field settings by clicking on the field and click on the "Advanced" tab.
  3. Check the "Save to Taxonomy" checkbox.
  4. Select the desired taxonomy from the drop down that appears.
  5. (optional) Check the "Enable Enhanced UI" checkbox to enable an awesome tag-input style UI (see screenshots).

Note: If the user inputs exising term names, the generated post will be assigned these terms. If the user inputs term names that do not exist, these terms will be added to the selected taxonomy and the generated post will also be assigned these terms.

How do I set a parent post with the drop down field?

When populating a Drop Down field with a post type, you may wish to set the selected post as the parent post for the generated post.

  1. Add A Drop Down field to your form.
  2. Click on the field to open the field settings. Then click on the "Advanced" tab.
  3. Check the "Populate with Post Type" checkbox.
  4. Select the desired post type from the drop down that appears. Be sure to select the same post type for which the post is being generated.
