Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin: Gravity Forms Custom Post Types] Automatically Choose Category

  • First of all, still love this plugin. It’s awesome and great work.

    I am trying to map a form to a custom post type and tag it with a particular category automatically. For example, I want the post to automatically have category X while the user doesn’t even see an option to choose the category. Is this possible with the plugin?

    Thank you.

  • I need to achieve exactly the same thing.

    I have options for user to select regional location in my Gravity form, which maps beautifully to these subcategories, but I need the parent category to be checked by default and therefore mapped to by default without the user seeing this.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I’m not exactly sure how you have everything setup, but you most likely want to use the gform_pre_submission hook to adjust the form. Since I did this a while ago, I’ve forgotten a lot of how it is done, but the code I have within the hooked function is:


    //Set the category to be education
    //Education is category ID 9
    $_POST['input_9_1'] = 9;

    This is where education was the category I wanted chosen by default.

    I hope that’s at least slightly helpful for you.
