This wouldnt really work for me as im trying to use the same checkboxes to tag both users and posts. What you would be doing here is maintaining two list of tags, one for users and one for posts. (which i guess would work but isnt ideal for my client) It would be more ideal to have a custom field of type checkbox in posts to tag the posts into certain categories, and then the very same custom field in the users profile to allow users to tag themselves into those categories, thus building the link/relationship.
I have a similar problem to this also. It appears that there is no way to relate users to posts other that via author. I want to tag a user profile and tag a post so that the data can be related. So my user states he likes “Science fiction books” in his profile info.. lets direct him to a list of post types(books) tagged with “Science fiction” … that kinda thing, seems pretty standard stuff.
Would anyone know if / how this is possible?
Hi, nice plugin, do you think it would be appropriate to use as a solution to the following:
I am using the “More fields” plugin to add some checkboxes to posts. These checkboxes will allow a post to be associated with genre of book.
I am also using buddypress. When a user registers I want to be able to give the user the option to choose which book genres they are most interested in, and then save it into their profile info. These genres obviously have to be the same as the genres which i am tagging my posts as (the custom field ive created in more fields).
Can anyone think of a way I can allow users to choose which genres (multiple checkboxes) they are interested in. I could of course create a profile field containing the book genres in the “profile field setup”, but then they wouldnt be the same as the checkboxes im using to “tag” posts with and therefore id be maintaining two sets of data which are in no way linked and would be useless for reporting purposes.
Thanks for any help, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks for this, unfortunately it doesnt really solve the problem. What this will do is allow users to register to a group on signup.
I want to store metadata in a users profile taken from a pre-populated custom field. So that I can use the same custom field to tag posts and therefore establishing a link between users and posts. So if a user says they are interested in science fiction books, then in theory I could present a list of pages tagged with science fiction can be displayed, etc,.. the dispalying isnt the hard part, its creating the metadata which is consistant throughout posts and users.
Thanks for your help
