    Is it possible to add a metabox post relationship field using MB Frontend Submission?

    Yes, it’s possible. Each relationship meta box has an ID: {$relationship_id}_relationships_from and {$relationship_id}_relationships_to. You can include these IDs in the form shortcode to show it on the front end.

    Anh, I found this thread and I’m a little confused. Lets say I have a custom post called ‘Classes’ and I want to link that to a custom post type of ‘Room’. I want to be able to edit the ‘Class’ with MB Frontend and select or add a new ‘Room’ from a ‘select_advanced’ field. How could I do that?

    Hi Dave and Nick,

    The relationship extension only supports to select posts related, impossible to add new post with this box.

    Nick, MB Frontend Submission was insufficient for my needs. I ended up writing the my own UI, AJAX, and server code to handle the requests. I still used the MB Relationship php helper methods to process the data on the server.

    I hope to be at your level some day Dave, well done!

    Long, I’m not OP so I’m only able to share my interpretation of what they – and therefore myself – am looking to accomplish.

    Let’s say I have two CPTs (Ingredients and Recipes) and a relationship between them.

    Now I’d like to use Frontend Submission to create a form that creates a new Recipe. After I write 10k words retelling the history of ever even thinking of this recipe, I want to select ingredients that go into it.

    If I don’t have some rare new ingredient that I’ve never entered before, I understand from your most recent comment that this is not possible (feature request!). However, if I want to add an Ingredient to my Recipe that’s already in the system, is there a way to do so via a Frontend Submission form?

    Hi Nick,

    Please take a look at my screen record https://www.loom.com/share/38b868128794408cad69b6b69baee3f1.

    I’ve created two post types Ingredient and Recipe then show the relationship meta box on the front end with Frontend Submission.
