I have created a custom post type and I have a field with radio buttons. The client is asking for a "clear selection" button if the radio buttons are clicked by mistake. The radio buttons are not a required field and the client is afraid someone will click a radio button and not be able to correct the mistake.

I'm thinking of changing the radio buttons to checkboxes but there are already a lot of custom post type entries and I'm afraid I'll lose the radio button data if I change them to checkboxes.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi John,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

There is no built-in feature available to add a clear/reset button for the radio field. To achieve this you can use some custom HTML and script.

Here is a useful discussion on the topic of using a custom script for this:

I hope this helps and for more personalized assistance around custom code, you can also consider hiring a professional from our list of recommended contractors:
