Custom Field Data + Array in Custom Post Meta

  1. Hey Guys! I am running GF and the Custom Post Plugin and I've run into a bit of a problem...

    The template I am using implements a custom post type as a "directory"

    I've created a form that will save the submission title, body and featured image into this custom post. But, I also have several custom fields (besides custom post related- Title, Body, etc.) who's data I would like to bundle into an array and inserted into the custom post's meta.

    Any pointers?

  2. I've written an action hook in my functions.php file...can anyone tell me if I'm heading in the right direction?

    function theme_integration($post, $form) {
    
    $post = get_post($entry["post_id"]);
    
    $def_lat = $def_long = 0;
    
    if ( isset( $_POST['location'] ) ) {
    list( $def_lat, $def_long ) = explode( ',', $_POST['location'] );
    }
    
    	$ait_dir_item = array(
    		'address' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'gpsLatitude' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'gpsLongitude' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'streetViewLatitude' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'streetViewLongitude' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'streetViewHeading' => '0',
    		'streetViewPitch' => '0',
    		'streetViewZoom' => '0',
    		'telephone' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'email' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'web' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursMonday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursTuesday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursWednesday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursThursday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursFriday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursSaturday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'hoursSunday' => $entry['dummy_ID'],
    		'alternativeContent' => $entry['dummy_ID']
    );
    
    update_post_meta( $post_id, '_ait-dir-item', $ait_dir_item );
    }
    
    add_action("gform_after_submission_1", "theme_integration", 10, 2);

    I'm working on something similar. Were you able to resolve the issue of submitting CPT meta data in the form of an array?

    I've got exactly the same issue, I need to end up with a date array with keys for day, month, year to match the date custom field in my theme
