Creating a post from a form that publishes automatically and assigns category

    Hi there, was wondering how I could provide a form to my users that allows them to submit content that is automatically published to the site (without going to drafts first) and assigned a specific category. - Thanks!

  2. This is built in to Gravity Forms. When you add a Post Body field to your post, you will have the option to select Published or Draft, and also to select the category.

    Be sure the fields you add are from the "Post Fields" section, not Standard or Advanced fields. You need to have a post body and post title field added to the form from the Post Fields section. If you need additional help, please let us know.
