I am trying to create a publicly accessible grant application page using a CiviCRM profile with form fields for Grant record information.

To test this, I created a profile with only one Grant-record field in it.

When I then create a Wordpress post using the shortcode for the profile, it gives this error: "Profile search, view and edit are not supported for Profiles which include fields for more than one record type."

If I change the form to have just one field of some other type of field (with no Grant field), for example, Individual - Birth Date, then it works just fine.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

You'll need the Grant Application Pages extension to do what you want. I believe Caldera Forms CiviCRM will also do the trick, and give you some more flexibility to boot - but I'll admit I haven't tried that approach.
