Tell us what you are trying to do?
I'm building a classifieds page and would like to display a list of all my Custom Post Type taxonomies (categories) on one of the pages (Add Advertisement page) (these will be a list of titles and images). Then, a user who wants to add an Advertisement will choose the category and be taken to the form for that category. Is it possible to do such a thing?

It is possible with Toolset plugins.

For example, you can try these:
1) Create a custom post type "Advertisement" with custom taxonomy "categories"

2) Enable legacy editor:
It is required to use legacy editor to setup below taxonomy view

3) Dashboard-> Toolset-> Views, create a taxonomy view:
- Query terms of taxonomy "categories"
- In view's loop, display term information, and link to target page of step 5), and pass term ID value as URL parameter

4) Create page "Choose category", display above taxonomy view

5) Create a page "Add Advertisement", in this page display a post form for creating new "Advertisement" posts:
add a generic hidden field to store the term ID URL parameter value:

6) After user submit the post form, use action hook "cred_save_data", to trigger a custom PHP function, and set the taxonomy "categories"


Thank you very much for your help.
I'm almost done with everything from your suggestions and it's work but I have a problem with this shortcode

[cred_generic_field field="adds-categories" type="hidden" urlparam="termId"][/cred_generic_field] 

When I use it in page content fields and text section it is not rendered, displayed as text.
When I try to put it into the form as an "Insert Html Content" after the form is rendered the hidden field isn't generated, just an empty form row.

You can put the generic hidden field into post form content, if you need more assistance for it, please provide a test site with the same problem, fill below private message box with login details, also point out the problem page URLs and form URL, I can setup a demo for you


Ok, now it's work. I have another question can I display specific forms only for specific taxonomy? For example, I have the category Cars and I want to display the form only when the user chooses a car category, and if the user chooses the category boats to display the form for boats. I tried to use the "Appears on" section in Edit Post Field Group form and add conditions for Post Type and Taxonomy but is not working. The form is displayed even when I choose a category that doesn't match the condition.
