I want any visitor to be able to submit links to my blog via the Guest Entries plugin, but how do I include the custom fields of my "Links" entry type in the Guest Entries form? For example, a category field, text fields...

  • OT: Rafael, do yourself a favor and get the client license. Entry types is definitely no useful solution to separate blog entries, a designer directory and user submitted links. Or is this "Links" entry type in fact one type of your blog entries?

  • Yep it is ;) Links will be part of the main blog page!

if you're using an Entry Form - [entries/saveEntry] you'll need to pass them in as fields.

For example if you had a text field called "Links" you would need an input like this

<input type="text" name="fields[links]" value="{{ entry.links }}">

Passing in inputs with the name fields[your_field_name] allow it to be picked up and populated correctly.
