A GF post form generates an empty page

    I've built a GF form to allow users to generate pages but pages are empty. In the form, there is a textarea field with TinyMCE. Is it compatible ? Can you help ?

  2. I'm a little confused...

    1) Gravity Forms doesn't create pages, it only creates posts.

    2) Gravity Forms doesn't have an option to use TinyMCE with the textarea field.

    Have you implemented customizations or 3rd party add-ons?

    I've tried with a textarea field without the tinyMCE bar and it's not working too. The page stay empty without the content

  4. I'm still completely confused.

    I don't understand what tinyMCE bar you are referring to. Gravity Forms does not have ANY tinyMCE functionality. It doesn't use tinyMCE.

    I'm also not sure what page you are referring to when you say the page stays empty. Gravity Forms doesn't generate or create pages. It can create posts, but not pages.

    yes, you're right. Sorry. I've created a form. I've put it on a page and then the post generated is empty. I've deactivated all plugins

  6. If the Post that is generated is empty then it's most likely due to how you configured the form.

    In order to create a Post the basic fields you need to use will be:

    - Post Title
    - Post Body

    Both of these are fields in the Post Fields toolbox. If your form doesn't have a Post Body field, then the Post won't have content. So make sure you are using the Post Title field for the Title and the Post Body field for the content of the post.

    If you are using the Post Body field another thing to check is to make sure if you are using the Content Template option on the Post Body field, that there is content in the content template. Specifically the merge tag for that field (the insert form field drop down above the content template textarea inserts merge tags).

    A last question : if I want to delete a post generated by a GF , do I have to use GF plugin or the "edit post" of WP ?

  9. Edit post in WordPress. The entry will still exist in Gravity Forms, but that's just the data that was captured. The Post that was created is a regular Post and can be edited or deleted like any other Post in WordPress.
