I am trying to create custom fields for the frontend post editor. I need to be able to have a couple drop down options, some radio buttons, and some other custom fields. Is this even possible to do and then have them show up in the post? I have tried doing this with just regular text fields and the content typed into the custom fields don’t appear on the published post. I also need to know if there is a way via the registration form to automatically assign a role based on which custom registration form they fill out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.8 years, 8 months ago jmtechglobalParticipant
How do I get the regular fields to display on the posts then? The way I have it working now I get the custom fields along with a bunch of other fields I didn’t create or populate on the post.

Frontend publisher accepts title, category, featured image, or custom post meta fields. Custom post meta can be setup by reading the docs here:
post_meta – A comma seperated list of meta keys to collect on the frontend publisher (Post Meta). The value should be keys only e.g. custom_url,_my_custom_meta_key,etc.
post_meta_labels – Required if you use the above option. A comma seperated list of labels to present the meta keys you want to collect. e.g. Custom URl,Thumbnail URL,etc.8 years, 8 months ago straplessmediaParticipant
I’ll post this as a separate question
I have a similar question. I’ve set up the the Custom Fields in WP and made a page with the following shortcode:
[userpro template=publish post_type=modelprojects post_meta="model-brands,model-time" post_meta_labels="Brand(s) used,Time spent"]
This displays the correct fields in the frontend publisher, but when I fill them out and submit the post it is not registered in the actual post (blank fields in the WP Dashboard edit screen). What am I doing wrong?
