pre-populate post tags

    Hi there,
    I would like to use the Post field "Tags" as checkboxes, but have it pre-populated by the existing post tags, so users cannot create their own tags.
    How would I go about this?

  2. Currently the Post Tags field does not support a checkbox option. In order to do this you would have to do this as a customization using custom code. It's not something Gravity Forms does out of the box although we do plan on enhancing the Post related fields in the future.

    Hmm,
    I have this option on my gravity forms. Maybe it comes form the custom post type/taxomomy plugin. Just wondering how I would populate the checkboxes from the existing tags. Any ideas? It works fine with the custom taxonomies (I can populate them!), but would be great to get it working with ordinary tags....

  4. If you are using the custom post type/taxonomy plugin I don't believe it currently lets you auto-populate the checkbox values. If you wanted to do this you'd have to do it using custom code as a customization.
