HELP! Populate form with custom post type

  1. Good evening,
    congratulations for your support and for the great plugin!
    For several days I try in vain to implement a function: I'm working with the additional Custom Post Types plugin allows me to populate the fields with a "post type" (link to the plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-custom-post-types /) my question is this: in a drop-down menu, you can display only posts written by the user type logged?
    Thank you, I await your response

    you can populate a dropdown via PHP, so yes you can do that but you need to write your own custom PHP code, check the documentation, there's an example on how to populate a dropdown; in your case you could populate with the results of a wp_query for posts belonging to a certain post type

  3. Hello and thanks for the answer.
    I tried various codes, including this http://www.pastie.org/3430913.
    What I can not do is this: how do I show him all the posts written by the user logged on a taxonomy? I believe that the string to change is at this point: $ posts = get_posts ("category = Business"): (unfortunately I can not: (I tried in every way! Can you give me a hand? Thank you!

    have you tried defining at the beginning of your function

    $post = $wp_query->post;

    because you're executing a function outside the wordpress loop and then calling $post... that would return empty outside a wp query
