I have an Entries field that I need to have as a drop-down field in my front-end form. The code below is displaying the correct options, although after selecting and submitting the form, the tbdDesignerUrl-field is not populated with the selection in the entry.
It shows as nothing selected. (tbdDesignerUrl is the name of the Entires field I am trying to populate through the form and entry.designerUrl is the field I am using to select the entry in the options.)

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('designers') %}
  <select name="fields[tbdDesignerUrl]" id="fields[tbdDesignerUrl]">
    {% for entry in entries %}
     <option value="{{ entry.designerUrl }}">{{ entry.designerUrl }}</option>
    {% endfor %}

Thanks for any help you can give! :)


Simply put, an Entries field is an array containing entry ids, and your form needs to send it that way.

Just replace name="fields[tbdDesignerUrl]" with name="fields[tbdDesignerUrl][]". That way the value gets submitted as an array.

Also replace value="{{ entry.designerUrl }}" with value="{{ entry.id }}", since we need the submitted value to be an entry id.
