1.5RC4: $form['id']) not available?

  1. STB

    I got some custom code working allright with a filter,
    but now I only want it to work on form number 1.

    So I added this to the theme's functions.php:

    add_action("gform_pre_submission_filter", "update_autoresponder");
    
    if($form['id'] != 1) return $form; //only use on form1 else return
    
    function update_autoresponder($form) {
    
    do something
    }
    
    // return the modified form
    return $form;
    }

    The code should thus only run on form1, but instead it is also run on form2, form3 etc.

    Next, for debug purposes, I changed the code to the following for debug purposes:

    add_action("gform_pre_submission_filter", "update_autoresponder");
    
    if($form['id'] != 1) return $form; //only use on form1 else return
    
    function update_autoresponder($form) {
    
    return $form; // <-- added new line, to stop processing rest of the code regardless of $form['id']
    
    do something
    }
    
    // return the modified form
    return $form;
    }

    This did indeed result in the added custom code to be skipped.

    Next I tried switching back from 1.5RC4 to 1.4,
    and I used the orignial code, as posted above here.
    And things worked as expexted as well, only performing the custom code for form 1.

    I cant figure out what is wrong here... but Im beginning to think that the $form object, or the $form['id'] array is not globally available in 1.5RC4.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

  2. First the filter you are trying to use is called gform_pre_submission, not gform_pre_submission_filter.

    Second, the code you have in place is going to execute for all forms because you aren't applying it to a specific form id. If you it to run just for one form id, you need to change your code.

    Change this:

    add_action("gform_pre_submission_filter", "update_autoresponder");

    To this:

    add_action("gform_pre_submission_ID", "update_autoresponder");

    Replace the ID appended to the end of gform_pre_submission with the ID of the form you want to customize.

    You would either use gform_pre_submission to apply the change to all forms, or gform_pre_submission_ID with the id of your form to apply it to a specific form.

    Update:

    I posted a bit too early above.

    After some fiddling around some more , this is what worked for me in the end.
    add_action("gform_pre_submission_filter_1", "update_autoresponder");

    This lets me change the autoresponder fields for form1 while not altering them on form2, form3 etc.

    So, the filter I need *is* called gform_pre_submission_filter_ID, not gform_pre_submission_ID

  5. @STB Yes, I misread your initial post. There are actually 2 different hooks in Gravity Forms that have similar names:

    gform_pre_submission
    Use this hook to perform actions after form validation, but before sending notifications and storing the entry data.

    gform_pre_submission_filter
    Use this hook to manipulate the Form Object before sending notifications and storing entry data.

    Glad you got it working and I could point you in the right direction, at least with the _ID piece of the puzzle :)
