I created and add to favorites type of set up with toolset.
For some context it's:
Add to playlist (parent post type) and song (child post type)
It works fine except for one issue. I have it set up so a subscriber can create new 'playlist' posts. I also set it up so they can only see their posts in a view (filter view by logged in user).
What the problem is...when the subscriber selects the dropdown in the relationship form for playlists they see ALL playlists created by all authors of all roles.
Is there a way to have it so they will only see their posts in the relationship form drop down?
It seems weird to me that they should see everyone's playlists in the drop down.

Hi Scott,

Yes this is possible, on the Edit form page for that particular form, just go to the relationship field.

There should be a setting that allows you to only see posts from the currently logged in user.



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
FYI - for anyone else, if your in expert mode (as I was) the code to add is author='$current'
The filtering setting only shows in visual mode.
