Saving checkbox values to custom taxonomy

  1. sanz

    Hi all,

    I'm in need of a little guidance with getting and then saving selected checkbox values to a custom taxonomy.

    My form is correctly displaying terms from a custom taxonomy (retail_category) using the Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types plugin. I realise I also need to use gform_after_submission or similar action to do the actual save to the taxonomy.

    I'm just not sure how to get the values from the checkboxes into an array that I can pass directly to wp_set_object_terms.

    My form ID is 6 and the field ID is 8. The checkbox list shows up like:

    <li id="field_6_8" class="gfield    retailer-edit-profile-retail-categories"><label class="gfield_label">Retail Categories</label><div class="gfield_description">Select the Retail Categories that best describe your company products/services.</div><div class="ginput_container"><ul class="gfield_checkbox" id="input_6_8"><li class="gchoice_8_1"><input name="input_8.1" type="checkbox" value="9" checked="checked" id="choice_8_1" tabindex="15"><label for="choice_8_1">Appliances</label></li><li class="gchoice_8_2"><input name="input_8.2" type="checkbox" value="10" id="choice_8_2" tabindex="16"><label for="choice_8_2">Book Stores and Stationary</label></li><li class="gchoice_8_3"><input name="input_8.3" type="checkbox" value="8" id="choice_8_3" tabindex="17"><label for="choice_8_3">Fashion and Accessories</label></li><li class="gchoice_8_4"><input name="input_8.4" type="checkbox" value="6" id="choice_8_4" tabindex="18"><label for="choice_8_4">Food and Beverage</label></li><li class="gchoice_8_5"><input name="input_8.5" type="checkbox" value="7" id="choice_8_5" tabindex="19"><label for="choice_8_5">Home and Living</label></li><li class="gchoice_8_6"><input name="input_8.6" type="checkbox" value="15" checked="checked" id="choice_8_6" tabindex="20"><label for="choice_8_6">Technology</label></li></ul></div></li>

    Any help would be appreciated.

    If anyone can show me the basics of getting the values from selected checkboxes into an array suitable for saving to a custom taxonomy that would be great. Thanks.

  3. If you are using the Gravity Forms Custom Post Types Add-On, shouldn't you be able to use it's built in functionality to save checkbox values as taxonomy items for that custom taxonomy type? Or does the Custom Post Types Add-On not work with the checkbox field?

  4. It doesn't work with the checkbox field... only the input field.

    I'm needing this function too right now and am working on a fix.
