Business Directory? Recipes Directory? Are these possible?

    Someone adviced me using Gravity Forms after I didn't succeed in what I would like to create using WP Business Directory Manager

    I was wondering, is it possible to use Gravity in order to create two directories - i.e. a Business Directory and a Recipes Directory - with each directory it's own submit form?

    I would like to have a Business Directory and a Recipes Directory on my website. Both need a custom form for members (and non-members) to add content (i.e. pages) to the directory.

    Each directory should have it's own categories though.

    The Business Directory should have categories like Restaurants, Electronics, Cars & Automobiles, et cetera. People should be able to submit a company by filling out a form with company name, website, description and specify the category.

    The Recipes Directory should have categories like Pizza, Soups, Desserts, et cetera. People should be able to submit a recipe by filling out a form with recipe name, description, specify category, etc.

    It also should be possible for members and non-members to view the listings/pages in each directory.

  2. Gravity Forms itself does not have the ability to display entries on the front end of your site. It only captures the data.

    HOWEVER there is a 3rd party plugin in the WordPress.org plugin repository called Gravity Forms Directory Add-On that adds the ability to display entries on the front end. It was created by a Gravity Forms user.

    So out of the box, no, Gravity Forms does not do this. But paired with the add-on I mentioned above it is possible.

    You can also use Gravity Forms to create WordPress posts. So if you didn't want to use the Directory Add-On you could use Gravity Forms to create posts and assign them to categories that you utilize to display as a directory by customizing your theme to do so.
