I have installed BuddyPress Xprofile Custom Field Types and it is working perfectly.
However I would like to know if it is possible to use the custom post type selector directed to another table.
I created a table with the Pods plugin and I need to direct the selector field for this table.
Thanks for any help.
Welcome to BuddyDev.
I am sorry but this plugin won’t allow you to change the data source. The best option I see is creating a new custom field type specific for post.
For inspiration, You may look at this plugin’s implementation.
Thank you Brajesh for the reply.
In fact, I’ve created a new custom field called
“occupation” in the user profile fields. I selected for this field the type “Custom Post Type Selector” and could point to a custom post also called “occupation”.
However, this list of occupations will always be updated and for this reason I created a new table for it, instead of creating a type of post, that would be in the table wp_posts, making it difficult for me to update the list of occupations.
This is why I would like to call this new table in this field.
But thank you again. I’ll think of another alternative.
I tried the alternative now, creating a custom post type called “setor”, to be able to call through the “Custom Post Type Selector”, thus choosing the post type “setor”.
The problem I found now is that this type does not fix. Even saving multiple times, it keeps calling the type “post” and not the custom type “setor”.
But I tested with the “Custom Post Type Multiselector” and this one worked for the custom “sector”. Is it a bug?
Yes, That was a bug
But missed to push on wp.org. Will do by tomorrow.
