HELP! Dropdown items appearing below form.

  1. I want to pre-populate a dropdown menu in a list with items from a custom post type. I found an existing post ( that seems to be exactly what I'm looking for, but it just isn't working. My drop-down has the correct label, but the options don't appear there. Instead, they're listed below the form.

    Here's a rough example I uploaded to show you what I mean:

    This is what's in my functions.php:

    See how the drop-down menu is empty and the 5 names appear at the bottom? Am I doing something wrong?

  2. You're not calling the filter correctly. You're not sending any arguments. From the documentation, this is how you call the filter (adapted to your use):

    // form 2, field 3, column 1
    add_filter("gform_column_input_2_3_1", "employee_name_column", 10, 5);
    function employee_name_column($input_info, $field, $column, $value, $form_id){

    Those 5 arguments need to be sent to your function, exactly like that. Take a look at the documentation page again.
