    Since I can't access any other area of the forum, I can't verify this 100% without asking...

    I need the ability for a registered user to make a blog post WITHOUT having to log in first.

    Essentially, I need to create a form where they enter their email address, password, post title, and post text. If the entered email address and password match an validated user, the post goes live on the site. Otherwise, it's rejected.

    I gather this is possible, but I want to confirm. I sent an email and was given a link to the demo site, but that does me no good. I have no idea how to use GF and I don't want to invest the time to learn how to use it if it won't work for my needs.

    Thanks!

    Hi dnavarrojr, You can add post title, post body fields, as well as e-mail address and password. But Gravity Forms won't test for login details the way you've set this up.

    Gravity Forms can create a draft post or a live post. Gravity Forms can make the post as the logged in user that submits it. But the log in and post submission process are currently two separate things.

    I can't think of any way off the top of my head to have the default post status of the form to change based on if the user login information is correct. This would require a customization to be coded as far as I know.

    Is it possible to add Ajax validation to a form element?

    For example, is there a form element option to run a PHP or Javascript code snippet for the exit event on each element?

    Or run a script when the submit button is pressed?

    There isn't anything built into Gravity Forms to do that, but JavaScript (JQuery) inherently allows developers to do such things.

    So I'd have to insert a handler into each element... Seems like a glaring hole in GF. An additional box under the advanced tab for each element where you can insert the name of a handler would be an easy update and powerful way to let users create quick and easy element validation.
