drop down with posts from certain author

  1. I have a dropdown which shows custom post titles. I would like to make a dropdown which is showing only the post titles from the custom posts that were added by the logged on user that is using the dropdown. Looked at http://pastie.org/1617402 but don't know where to go from there.
    If anyone can assist, would be much appreciated.

  2. So, you want to limit this code to return only posts from one author, but otherwise, this code works fine for you? If that is the case, try this modified code: http://pastebin.com/46wpe9Ss

    That is unchanged from the original you linked to, other than restricting the posts to those by the logged in user. Please test and let us know how that goes.

  3. Hi thanks. Tried it but it returns no results.

    Made a few changes:
    - 'gform_pre_render' -> 'gform_pre_render_2' (2 is my form ID)
    - dropdown field for my form = 1
    - Changed the posttype from 'post' to my custom posttype 'shop' (2x)

    Also tried $post_type = 'post' and added a post, no entries found her as well. I use e-mailaddress as loginname.

    When I echo $choices it returns the word Array, shouldn't this be a list of posts?

    Hope you can determine where it's going wrong

  4. No, $choices is an array. Try print_r($choices) and see what shows up.

    Also, please post the complete code you are using to pastebin.com or pastie.org

  6. You're absolutely right: my mistake. I edited the paste. I must have been trying different things with differently named variables.
