Support » Plugin: Frontier Post » Store two categories set by two authors

  • Resolved foots


    I’m using frontier to allow multiple users to review a post and add a category for sorting.

    I’m using Bylines to have multiple authors per post. The issue I’m having is that Author 2 will over-write Author 1’s saved category.

    Is there a way to store both categories when the second users saves the post?

    Many thanks for your time.

  • I’ve disabled <input type="visible" name="post_categories" value="<?php echo $cats_selected_txt ;?> and I can see a box with the category ID. When I save the post, the ID is replaced.

    I’ve tried using wp_set_post_terms to store the second category without overwriting the first.

    I can set two categories in the backend and when I load the post, it shows both IDs. I’ve not been able to do this on the front end.

    Yes it can be done, but it will require quite some coding.

    You can use actions and filters:

    In this article there is link to examples of adding fields and custom fields

    I am sorry, but I do not support doing custom code, but I hope you can make somthing work. The action and filters are implemented to give you more freedom to change behaviour, but I do not have the bandwidt to help you do the coding

    Hi Finnj,

    Thank you for your reply. I’ve started looking at the link and I think I should be able to get it working.

    Thanks for your time.
