An Overview of the Post Fields in Gravity Forms

post fields in Gravity FormsGravity Forms is a premium plugin I often recommend. In this video I will show you the post field feature. It’s a great way to accept guest posts from bloggers without giving them access to your dashboard.

If you are interested in purchasing the Gravity Forms Premium Plugin, here is my affiliate link.

  1. Hey Bob,

    Your video on conditional logic explains perhaps a solution to 1 of my problems.

    I’m using Gravity Forms and want to take my current form to the next level.

    Here is the domain of the form I want to replicate. http://www.endurancewarranty.com/auto

    Here is my current form: http://clarityautoprotection.com/

    What I’d like to do is after the user clicks on the model of the vehicle they own, I would like it to trigger an additional sub menu(chained drop down) which allows the users to type in the “Model” of the car. You can see an example of this functionality here:

    In addition, I’d also like to better understand how to create a 2 page form such as in the example:

    Please see “Continue” function as I’d like to replicate this exact function = continuing to a part 2 of the from while staying on the same webpage.

    In other words, I want to replicate this EXACT form and how it behaves.

    I also have the code from Gravity Forms Support on how to integrate this: Not sure if this works…

    Gravity Forms does not currently support dependent drop downs like this (sometimes called chained or linked drop downs.) It can be accomplished and most sites like this are doing it with AJAX. Here is how one of our users tackled the problem as a customization: http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/dynamic-ajax-category-child-dropdown

    There is also this more recent code which shows another approach:

    And here is a general approach to the issue (not specific to Gravity Forms):

    Are you available for this project?

    1. Hey Jason, that does make sense of what you want to do. To be honest, that is a bit more coding/customizations then I am comfortable with. I would suggest you try Codeable … they are great at this kind of customization jobs.
