I created form with two different categories as dropdown list(both of them are set as “Child of”). I can add new post using this form with no problem, but then I go to edit form and I can see just one category selected, column for another category is empty – says “- Select -“. Sometimes is empty the first one, sometimes second one.
If I check post in backend, I can see two categories set there as it should be.
Could you please help me?
Using dropdown for multiple categories is not a good idea. You should use check boxes.
Or you can set a default category from the form settings and let the user choose another with dropdown.
ok, I will use Multi Select, because dropdown menu would look a little bit “messy” as we have a lot of categories…
but I have another problem, dont know if I should open another thread… I can not change custom date field. When I create new post, it is fine, but when I want to edit it, it says that post has been edited, but date is not changed at all.
Could you please advise?
thank you, Michal
