I need to allow users the ability to create an entry via the front end hence I'm using Channel Form.
In the CP I have set up several custom fields in this channel to be either a Playa field or a Relationship field.
In the Channel form page I am building SELECT statements by looping through a channel:entries tag building the value to be the entry_id and the text to be the title.
When I save the form the value of these fields are not being saved to either of the playa or relationship fields.
Is it possible to do this? Should I be passing in some other value other than the entry_id? I have the SELECT names set to the name of the custom field.
Oh and as an added complication the user is also selecting one of the site members. Currently I'm just saving the member_id to a text field so it's just showing up as a number. Is there any plugins I could use that would allow the editor in the CP to see the members name rather than their ID?
