A Basic Example of gform_post_submission would be awesome

  1. After looking around the forum for an answer it seems there a several people who are interested in capturing the field data from a gravity form and storing it in a separate database. It would be awesome if the gravity forms core team could provide the most basic of examples of how to accomplish this.

    I am using the Gravity Forms User Registration addon to register visitors to my blog (this form captures first/last name, username, password and email). I am simply trying to capture the $_POST values of their entry and store them in a second database for other uses outside of wordpress.

    I know that I need to place the following in my functions.php file:

    add_action('gform_post_submission', 'do_something');
    function do_something($entry){
    //Do something code
    }

    I know I need to capture the data AFTER it has been scrubbed through the forms validation function. I have looked at http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Entry_Object From what I understand the $entry["1"]; returns the second item within the $entry[]; associative array. I am assuming that $entry[ ] is akin to $_POST[ ]

    I just think a simple example of how to pull this information using the GravityForms API would be so very helpful to so many developers.

    I would very much like to be able to do this as well. I see the code but I don't really know how to implement this.

    Did you do something different or just not do anything at all? I am open to any suggestions.

    but I'm also interested in gform_post_submission

  6. @Gaslight gform_post_submission has been deprecated and should not be used anymore. I have answered your question regarding gform_after_submission in that thread.
