Add the Featured Image of a Post to a Gravity Form on that page

  1. Hi GF

    I am looking for solution to allow a gravity form to dynamically pull in the featured image of a post the same way it can pull in the post title.

    Basically this is a form on a products website. On the product details page is a modal with an enquiry form in it (a gravity form). I need it that when the user opens the modal with the form, two fields need to populate automatically - the post title and the featured image. We have the post title working, but cannot get the image to display.

    We tried something like this:

    add_filter('gform_field_value_prodimage', 'populate_post_prodimage');
    function populate_post_prodimage($value){
        global $post;
        $prodimg = set_post_thumbnail($entry['post_id']);
        return $prodimg;

    But it doesn't appear to be working.

    Any suggestion?

  2. Why are you using 'set_post_thumbail' here, if you are trying to retrieve what is saved as the featured image? How about get_the_post_thumbnail

  3. OK i have change the code to the get_the_post_thumbnail but now how do i pull that into an image field / checkbox on the form?

  4. In case anyone else trying to find a solution, i finally managed to hack this solution:

    add_filter('gform_field_choices', 'update_choices', 10, 2);
    function update_choices($choice_html, $field){

    if($field['formId'] != 3)
    return $choice_html;

    if($field['id'] == 21) {
    // in this example, "First Choice" is one of the option labels, we replace that with the image
    // the reason we include the "><" when searching for the "First Choice" text is because unless
    // the 'enable values' option is selected for this field, it would replace both the value and
    // the label, we just want to update the label

    global $post;
    $feat1 = '<img src="';
    $feat2 = wp_get_attachment_url( get_post_thumbnail_id($post->ID) );
    $feat3 = '" width="250" height="220" />';
    $featimage = $feat1 . $feat2 . $feat3;
    return $featimage;
