- Why “Edit Post” page shows “invalid post id”?
This page is for the purpose of editing posts. You shouldn’t access this page directly.
First you need to go to the dashboard, then when you click “edit”, you’ll be
redirected to the edit page with that post id. Then you’ll see the edit post form.
I tried the free version of this plugin to edit a custom post type. It worked fine but I needed the conditional logic and so update to the pro version for this alone. Previously I have been using Gravity forms and this plugin is far easier to work with and has more built in functionality in this particular area. I then decided to have a go at a form for updating user details. I have extended the details that I capture from members when they join and this plugin handled the custom fields without issue. I had a couple of minor support issues that were quickly addressed by the devs. Very pleased with the plugin it does exactly what I needed it for.
I recommend this plugin! It has good resources for posting in the frontend and the support of the company is very good, they are always attentive and they answer questions quickly. Thanks and congratulations for the plugin!
