In creating a new form for front end posting, I am trying to get gf to allow the user to select from an existing set of tags just like we can do for categories.
The problem I am having is if I use the 'tags' gf button, then it gives a blank line where the user can manually type in a new tag.
If I use the 'categories' button, then it will only display the categories, which are not associated with this post type.
What I am trying to do is use the categories drop down, only to populate it with a custom taxonomy 'testimony-tags'. That way the user can only select pre-existing 'testimony-tags' terms to attach to their gf post.
Church testimony post-type has taxonomy 'testimony-tags'. I have pre-populated testimony-tags with the following:
I am trying to add a drop down to my gf where the user selects from the above choices.
I've searched the forums, but do not see a code example on using a 'category' type drop down instead of the tags user input.
please provide an example.
