    What are custom post types used/intended for? Not sure if this is a bug or not, but choice turns out titles of groups, forum topics, etc... with no active links leading to an actual place in the site...

    I don't understand what you are talking about... In wordpress, you can create custom post types. If you create one custom post type you can use it for this field's type.

    Imagine you want to add a country field. You can create a custom post type named country and create all the countries you need in this post type. Then you create the field country selecting custom post type and choosing country as the post type. When your user fill the form, he would see a select box with all countries you create and he will be able to select one.

    Thanks Donmik.

    I guess I didn't know what custom post types were in WP to start with. I found this: http://codex.wordpress.org/Post_Types#Custom_Post_Types

    It seems a bit complicated for me then at this stage if I have to code custom types...

    Yes, it's a bit complicated at first but there is a plugin you can use and makes it very easy: WP-Types. I highly recommend you this plugin if you want to use custom post types.
