Assign a form to a custom post-type?

    I'm just now starting to dig into the gravity ability to actually allow a user to create a post. Most everything makes sense to me, but I can't figure out where to tell gravity to force the post to a specific post-type.

    In my scenario, I have building a form to allow users to upload 'testimony' post types. I do NOT want to simply use a category for this, but rather for numerous reasons need to use a specific post type.

    Is this a hidden easter egg somewhere?
    I see post types mentioned all over the place in the forums, but none mention how to set the form to post to a specified post type.

    I have already created the post type, so I was expecting a dropdown somewhere to make the selection. Gravity does seem to pickup on all of my custom metabox fields without issue.

  2. Yes it is possible using an available API hook and some custom PHP you would have to add to your themes function.php file.

    See this thread:

    We are going to be adding both custom post type and custom taxonomy support as a feature in Gravity Forms. However, we are waiting for the launch of WordPress 3.0 before we do so.

    @Carl
    If you need any extra help beta testing prior to the official release, I am more than willing. I have been running 3.0 since the alpha stage and quite active within the trac. I already have multiple sites using post-types, including multi-relational post types working perfectly. My understanding of this system is pretty good.
