    Hi,

    Yes I believe it can be done using templates.

    That way you can build your own Category dropdowns based on condition. but it will involve html and php coding

    Could I please get a bit more information about using templates?
    I have copied frontier_form.php and frontier_list.php to ./wp.content/themes/[your active theme]/plugins/frontier-post/, but how can I use these in a new page?

    And another question: how can I change the following code so there would be only those categories in the list that I choose to?

    <?php
    foreach ( $catlist as $category1) : ?>
    <option value="<?php echo $category1['cat_ID']; ?>" <?php if ( $cats_selected && in_array( $category1['cat_ID'], $cats_selected ) ) { echo 'selected="selected"'; }?>><?php echo $category1['cat_name']; ?></option>
    <?php endforeach; ?>

    Okay, it seems I misunderstood how this is working. So now Frontier post will take the template file automatically from the themes folder. But, how can I add another form? How can this be done with templates?

    Hi,

    There could be different ways to do this.

    If it is only minor things that is is different from form to form (ex. Category drop down) you can use a if or switch statement.

    The question is how you determine which category dropdown to display…..

    Other way is to use include() function based on a if or switch statement

    Hi,

    Yes, I only want to change the category drop downs. I need three different forms with three different category drop downs.

    finnj, if you have some time I would really appreciate if you could help me with the code. I don’t write php myself, I can only read a bit and I’m not able to do this on my own.

    Try version 2.1.0

    I have added a new parameter frontier_parent_cat_id in version 2.1.0 by using that you can have different forms that only will show children of the category id you specify.

    [frontier-post frontier_parent_cat_id=7]
