Can I Use Gravity Forms As A Search Plugin?

  1. salesmaximus


    I am using agentpress theme from studiopress.

    Can I use Gravity Forms to implement the search function they have?

    They search using categories I suppose. The drop downs are categories we specify anyway.

    I would like to know if it can be done before I make a purchase.

    If that's not possible as they have implemented, can gravity forms be used to combine with wordpress and provide search facility of wordpress posts based on conditional logic?

    Thank you

  2. Gravity Forms itself is not a search tool. It is for capturing and saving form data.

    That being said, it's possible to use it as a search form... however it's not going to perform the search. That would have to be done as a customization and you'd have to write the code. You'd have to use the form to capture the search selections and then use the confirmation redirect to redirect to a page and pass those selections and then that page would have to perform the search.

    So it would have to be done as a customization. It doesn't do searches on it's own.

  3. How do you pass the selections from the confirmation redirect to a php query on a custom template?

  4. @cathyh, if you are a Gravity Forms user now, please start a topic in the regular support forums and we'll be happy to help you with your question. We try not to do regular support in the pre-purchase forum.
