can I pull the excerpt from the site into gravity forms

  1. My question: Can I pull the excerpt from the site where I put a Gravity form?

    On the site I need to pull the excerpt into the form because the excerpt content a date from a event.
    The site have a event calender, I would like to put a form to book this event.
    Put to make it perfect I need to pull the excerpt from this event into a form field.

    I can pull the site URL and Name, that's fine, but the excerpts?

    get_the_excerpt() - but how can I use it?

    The site will be updated later today, with a new layout and Gravity forms. But the Event Calender stays like it is now: http://hardthaus.de/

  2. The site is currently in maintenance mode; let me know when it is visible to the public or if you'd like to provide an admin login and I will take a look.

  4. Hey Lindebjerg,

    Step 1 - Create a hidden field on your reservation form. I called mine "Event Date". Also make sure you check the "Allow field to be populated dynamically field". http://grab.by/5SCX

    Step 2 - Add a custom field to your event's post. I called mine "event_date". Specify the event date in whatever format you'd like here. http://grab.by/5SDg

    Step 3 - Add this code to your functions.php file: http://pastie.org/1089287

    Hope that helps!
