Wordpress Post Tags

    I am using GF to submit posts from the front end. My issue is the wordpress tags. I want them hidden and to auto populate from the form fields labeled: City, State, Profession, etc and create a template in the wordpress tags field like this {City}, {State}, {Profession}.

    The problem is doesn't work. The tags keep the "{ }" around it and it doesn't pull the data. It just uses the template tags. It works VERY WELL with custom fields to fill my SEO Platinum WP tags but not the OEM wordpress blog tags.

    I can I make this work?

    Thanks everyone! :)

  2. Do you have a link to your form online and a page where the tags are shown currently?

  5. I took a look at your email and your form.

    There is no content template for the WordPress tags post field. So, your approach is wrong. That "tags" field is designed to allow input of tags by the visitor, not pull data from other fields in your form into the WordPress tags. If you want to add tags to the post based on some hidden fields, and also data entered by the user, you will need to do something like I explained here:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/post-tags-auto-populatecontent-template#post-70496

    Change line 4 where the 15 is to make this code apply to form 10.

    You can change line 8 to look like this:

    [php]
    $post = array( 'ID' => $entry['post_id'], 'tags_input' => array('professional organizer', 'organize', rgpost('input_4'), rgpost('input_5')));

    That will add your two constant words as tags, and also field 4 and field 5 (city and state) as tags.
