Hi toolset,

Video: hidden link

I am trying to exactly what this documentation says: https://toolset.com/course-lesson/selecting-parent-posts-when-using-forms-to-create-child-items/

I have a post and a repeatable field group (RFG) where every time someone adds a RFG to a post the post will automatically be selected where the form is shown. However, I am using elementor and would like to know if there is a way to achieve the parent post automatically selected when adding a RFG on the post specific page using elementor and shortcodes. I haven't used blocks but I am assuming the two don't work really together as they are providing the same functionality on a post page.

Thank you,
Andrew

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

What if you switch your form to "Expert Mode" and then with the field that displays the parent post, you should try to add the attribute value="$current" this will help you to set the current post as parent of the post you are editing.

For example:

[cred_field field='@employee-post.parent' class='form-control' output='bootstrap' value="$current" select_text='--- not set ---' required='false']
