Tags to specify a list of tags to choose from as a drop down list

    Is it possibe with the form tags to specify a list of tags to choose from as a drop down list. Or with the custom fileds drop down list can I populate tags fields (Taxonomie). I'm creating a job board and I need to brake down into (countries, regions, job type, categories etc...)

  2. Right now the Post Tag field only acts as a standard tag input field and doesn't support custom taxonomies. We do plan on adding this in a future release. We can also look into allowing users to select from tags rather than entering them freeform.

    One way you could do this is to use custom fields for things like Job Type, etc. With Custom Fields you can use a variety of field types (drop downs, radio buttons, check boxes, text input, etc.).

    Thanks Carl for the quick answer, the issue I have with custom fields is for example I have a job listing some Part Time others Full Time I want people to be able to click on Full Time and have all the jobs in this section. I could do a search link /?s=Full Time.
    I like taxonomie tags because they act like a category. Not sure what I should do.

    I’m having this same problem, actually. I think, for now, I am going to hack something together with JavaScript.

    I actually have a solution for this using some PHP and Gravity Forms Hooks. I'll put an example together and post it here.
