ShortCodes and Form Fields – Geolocation
using the php echo do shortcode commands… well i can echo anywhere in the code, but do you think I can “echo” INSIDE a form text field??
In normal HTML or ASP this is a breeze, why is it so difficult in WP to do this? I mean the variable is there and available on every page and post (runs in header), why can i not have form value php echo do_shortcode (had to tweak that to display here) and have the field filled in on the registration form.
For us it is essential to have the users’ location at sign up, preferably I would like to use buddypress Xprofile fields to display the field at signup and the allowing the variables or shortcode to auto poulate the field… I have tried so many things, bought gravity forms, tried Formidable… no luck, something so simple…
The best plugin that anyone could develop for BuddyPress would be a better X Profile Fields Editor, allowing you to specify a SHORTCODE or variable right there and then…
Anybody want to make a quick buck and sort this for me, as i have spent 2 days JUST trying to get this done, crazy… my skype is greg.mcewan.marriott and my email email@example.com
The variables are there, just “put them” INSIDE the form field…
Within any blog post or page, you can use the following shortcodes:
[mmjs-countrycode] – the ISO 3166-2 country code
[mmjs-countryname] – the country name
[mmjs-city] – the city name
[mmjs-region] – the ISO 3166-2 country code (state or province abreviation)
[mmjs-regionname] – the region name
[mmjs-lat] – latitude
[mmjs-long] – longitude
[mmjs-postalcode] – post/zip code
[mmjs-ip] – ip address
