[Resolved} Checkboxes: Post Category: Allow field to be populated dynamically

  1. I checked off this option for one for my fields and called it bus-cat

    I tried passing it a value and values, but I can not get it to work.

    The field is a post category field with check boxes and the URL looks like:

    yourdomain.com/?bus-cat=Shopping
    or
    yourdomain.com/?bus-cat=Retail,Shopping

    It will not dynamically populate these check boxes as "checked" for those categories.

    Am I doing something wrong here?

    Thanks,

  2. Found that the input's name for each checkbox is the value i need to pass via ?bus-cat= query

    so the name for the first checkbox happens to be "53" (the ID of that category).
