Click "Show results" and page get scrambled

    Hi,

    I use this shortcode to display a poll on a WP page:

    [php]
    [gravityform action="polls" id="25" mode="poll" style="red" show_results_link="true" display_results="true" percentages="true" counts="true"]

    All looks good until I hit the "Show results" button. When the page reloads the whole page is suddenly scrambled with content displaced all over the page. I've found it's due to a missing </div>. If I place one after the shortcode the page looks better:

    [php]
    [gravityform action="polls" id="25" mode="poll" style="red" show_results_link="true" display_results="true" percentages="true" counts="true"]</div>

    But now the side menu on the page disappears! I'm using a theme (Modernize) on top of WP. This is probably the problem. But what to do?

    I also have problem with the GF widget that uses the unordered list ( <ul> ) code from the theme's css, which looks bad.

    Regards
    Johan

    Hi there, can you link to your form without the extra end div call so we can take a look at what is happening?

    Hi,

    thanks for the help.

    Here is the url. The site is under development, but I hope you can reach it anyway. The test poll is at the bottom:

    http://nordicgreen.cag.se/sv/bli-elkund/prishistorik/

    Also, I inserted the widget version of the poll on this page:

    http://nordicgreen.cag.se/sv/fornybar-energi/allt-om-elmarknaden/hur-fungerar-elmarknaden/

    There you see how the plug-in "picks up" the arrows and the <hr> code from the theme, although I guess it shouldn't. Luckily, the widget version doesn't screw up the page when you click on it, but the lines and arrows make it look ugly.

    Regards
    Johan

  4. There is some additional markup being added to the Gravity Forms shortcode output. This is typically done by themes which include the [raw] shortcode. Looks like you're using Modernize, which is available from Themeforest. Themeforest themes typically include the [raw] shortcode and it causes all sorts of problems. Read more here: http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/tags/raw

    The quick fix is to wrap the [gravityform] shortcode in the [raw] shortcode. See if that takes care of the closing div problem.

    If it does, then we can work on your other CSS issues.

    Hi,

    I tried the [raw] code but it didn't work. Nor did the [noformat] code. I also deactivated all plug ins but that didn't do it either. I couldn't find the code below in the shortcodes.php WP file:

    function my_formatter($content) {
        $new_content = '';
        $pattern_full = '{(\[raw\].*?\[/raw\])}is';
        $pattern_contents = '{\[raw\](.*?)\[/raw\]}is';
        $pieces = preg_split($pattern_full, $content, -1, PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE);
    
        foreach ($pieces as $piece) {
            if (preg_match($pattern_contents, $piece, $matches)) {
                $new_content .= $matches[1];
                } else {
                $new_content .= wptexturize(wpautop($piece));
                }
            }
    return $new_content;
    }
    
    remove_filter('the_content', 'wpautop');
    remove_filter('the_content', 'wptexturize');
    add_filter('the_content', 'my_formatter', 99);

    so I couldn't comment it out, as proposed in some of the posts. The plot thickens. Probably GF is clashing with my theme somehow.

    Regards

  9. HOW DID YOU FIX IT!?

  10. @glbranding, please begin a new topic for your issue. Explain what is happening. Let us know what version of WordPress, Gravity Forms and the Polls add-on you're using, and share a URL to the page on your site where this is visible. Thank you.
