Tell us what you are trying to do?
I have a custom post type "Person Profiles". I am trying to create forms so that users that own these person profiles are able to create new profiles, and edit existing ones.

Using the forms I created, when I edit an existing profile, the changes do not save. When I try to add a new profile, the form throws error messages on the required fields, even though I had entered data into those fields.

Additionally, the Edit Post links do not show up for non-administrator users, even though I have Toolset Access set up to allow it.

Is there any documentation that you are following?
https://toolset.com/course-lesson/front-end-forms-for-adding-content/?utm_source=plugin&utm_campaign=forms&utm_medium=gui&utm_term=forms-creating-doc

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?
hidden link

Member dashboard: hidden link
Add new profile form: hidden link
Sample Edit Profile form: hidden link

Hi,

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

Are you seeing any other errors or warnings on the screen, in the browser's console, or in the server's error log?

To troubleshoot this, I'll need to see how these forms are set up in the admin area. Can you please share temporary admin login details, in reply to this message?

Note: Your next reply will be private and it is recommended to make a complete backup copy, before sharing the access details.

regards,
Waqar
