Documentation, Reference Materials and Tutorials for WPForms
WPForms makes it easy to include fields based upon post-types or taxonomy. In this article, we will show you how to create dynamic field choices.
Dynamic fields can connect form entries and allow users to make selections from existing content. Included in dynamic fields are dropdowns, checkboxes, and multiple choice buttons. These may be populated with posts, pages, custom post types or with categories and tags.
Setting Dynamic Field Default Values
Go to your form fields. Add a dropdown, multiple, or checkbox choice field and then click on it in the preview panel at right.
In the Field Options panel at left, under Advanced Options, select the Dynamic Choice option. At this time, you can choose between a Post Type (Posts, Pages, or Custom Post Types) and Taxonomy (Categories or Tags).
In our example, we have chosen the Custom Post Type of Products. When you view this form, all published products will be viewable. Users can select which item they are referring to in their form inquiry.
Finally you’re all set. You’ve create a form with dynamic fields auto-populated with data from existing content within your website.
