Hi there, I was looking at adding a time field to a frontend post editing form, but it seems like this is not supported by FF because it's not mappable in the form settings. Only publish date seems to be supported. This seems an oversight, as including the publish time would allow users to schedule posts for the future at a specific time. Screenshot attached. Can someone advise, please? Time field docs: Thanks, Phil.

What is not mappable in Formidable? Formidable has time fields. Scheduled post publishing is a WordPress feature. WordPress does not have a separate time field for post publishing. Architecturally, WordPress uses MySQL date/time fields. If you look at your site's wp_posts table in PHPMyAdmin, you'll see that for future scheduled posts, the post_date date/time field contains the future date and time in a single field. There are no separate time fields in WordPress used for scheduling posts. Formidable is using the WordPress architecture the way it has been designed.
