Add new Taxonomy Term when saving post



New Member

Not sure if this is the right place but somehow I hope that the Elementor addos can help me.

I am using Elementor pro + ACF Pro + ACF Frontend Pro + CPT UI all current versions.

I want something very simple. I defined a custom Post Type and a Custom Form for the input. I also have custom Taxonomies wich I display as ACF Field (the type is the Taxonmoy) in the ACF Field Group linked to the Post Type.

Now when I create the post there is a field Nickname and I want that when saving the new post the Nickname shall be added as new Term to the Taxonomy.

Right now, I only can use the select and add term dialog but this is not what I want. I want that the user types in a nick and that should be stored as a new term.

Somehow I feel that this should be possible with the right setup of the properties in Elemontor but cannot manage to do it. Or do I have to code something?

Thanks for helping a newbe.
