    How to Add Custom Taxonomies to Create/Edit Listing Form (form-listing.php)?

    I have searched the forums and docs for this subject but cannot find any solutions. I want to add a few custom taxonomies to the "Create Listing" form for frontend users to input while creating a new listing. I can display the custom taxonomies just fine by adding the proper code to the form-listing.php file, but the custom taxonomies are not saved to the listing when the user submits the listing. For example, I have registered the custom taxonomy "Business Hours" for the custom post type 'listings' via the functions.php file and I can display this taxonomy as a dropdown within the create listing form using the function
    Code:
    wp_dropdown_categories
    but when the user submits the form the "Business Hours" field in the single listing page is empty.

    Here is the full dropdown function:

    Code:
    <div class="form-field">
    <?php wp_dropdown_categories( array(
    'taxonomy' => 'bhours',
    'hide_empty' => false,
    'hierarchical' => true,
    'name' => 'bhours',
    'id' => 'bhours',
    'selected' => $listing-> bhours,
    'show_option_none' => __( 'Business Hours:', APP_TD ),
    'class' => 'required',
    'orderby' => 'name',
    'include' => $listing_cat,
    'hide_if_empty' => false,
    ) ); ?>
    </div>
    The same thing happens when I display the custom taxonomy as a text field using the following function:

    Code:
    <label>
    			<?php _e( 'Business Hours', APP_TD ); ?>
    			<input id="listing-bhours" name="bhours" type="text" value="<?php echo esc_attr( $listing->bhours ); ?>" class="required" />
    		</label>
    The only way I have been able to get the custom taxonomy entered in the create listing form to actually populate the correct field within the single listing page is by making a Walker checkbox as follows:

    Code:
    <?php
    $args = array(
        	'taxonomy' => 'bhours',
    	'title_li' => '',
        	'walker'   => New Walker_Category_Checklist,
    	'hide_empty' => false,
        	'checked_ontop' => false,
    );
    ?>
    
    <ul class="categorieschecklist">
    <?php wp_list_categories( $args ); ?>
    </ul>
    But I don't want to have to use a checkbox for all of my custom taxonomies which I want to include in the create listing form. So why does the data correctly save and display when I use the Walker function, but the same data will not save and display if I use any other function such as
    Code:
    wp_dropdown_categories
    or a radio or text field?
