Playa Documentation

Channel Form

You have two options for connecting a Playa field to a Channel Form.

Showing the full Playa field

If you want to show the full Playa field (the same thing you see in your Publish page), use Channel Form’s official syntax:

{field:playa_field_name}

Creating a custom input

If you’d rather give your form a custom input, you can do that instead.

Each entry that should be selected must have an input named with the format playa_field_name[selections][], and the value must be the entry ID.

{exp:channel:entries channel="articles"}
    <label><input type="checkbox" name="playa_field_name[selections][]" value="{entry_id}"> {title}</label>
{/exp:channel:entries}

Note that if you’re editing an existing entry, any existing selections will automatically be removed if they don’t show up in the new post data.
