Home Forums Add-ons Options Page Field or Variable for use in Group Location Reply To: Field or Variable for use in Group Location

  • I was just using an example, if I create an options page with one drop down select field called ‘postcats’ which would store the id of the category the user selects.

    The location of the field group would then be set to display only on the category id.

    But you’re saying it can’t be done that way, correct?

    I’m not seeing how a custom location rule would get something like that done, since it seems the location rules are based on already set choices, terms, cats, etc. I’m not seeing anything here that would hint otherwise.

    Im developing something as a plugin to go into sites where i want the custom fields to populate on a specific type of post category, but what one user calls that category might be different than another, hence the reason i want to give them the option to choose which category gets the custom field functionality.

    Appreciate your quick response though.
