Tell us what you are trying to do? I have a Post Form that has fields to select categories, but submitted posts are all "Uncategorized" no matter what I select. What code should I add?

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Hi Minesh,

I know you are off the clock soon. Would it be possible to assign this ticket to another agent while you are offline? My issues today are more time sensitive than usual.

Thank you for being so great!

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

As you can see with the following post - I've created that post using the Form: hidden link
=> hidden link

If you see the post in admin - it already attached the correct terms. Please check taxonomy meta boxes "Yoga Training" and "Yoga Retreats and Conferences" and "Yoga Teaching Jobs".

There is no option on form hidden link to select the category that is why it's just assigned the Uncategorized to category taxonomy.

Thank you! I just noticed that. Is there documentation to add "Select Category" to the view using check boxes? (I tried searching earlier). That's what I was trying to ask the support agent who delivered me the solution but I wasn't clear!
