    Hi,
    I have been told that Gravityforms can be used to create a Post or Page in WP, I am just wondering, is it possible to use Gravityforms to :
    1. Create a post to 4 different WP site with the same contents with just filling up 1 Gravityforms action? If yes, are there any requirements?
    2. Can I use Gravityforms to create or post events in Calendar of some of the WP Calendar plugin, if yes, which Calendar plugin will works.

    Many Thanks
    Bob

  2. Gravity Forms will work to capture the information on one site and create one post. You can use a plugin like FeedWordPress to populate content on your other sites:

    Or, you could write custom code to post with XML-RPC to post remotely to your other three sites. Gravity Forms has a gform_after_submission hook which could be used to create posts on other sites after your form is submitted. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_after_submission

    Regarding comment 2, there is no specific integration with any plugin to create events. Some events plugins use custom posts to store event details and since Gravity Forms can create posts, including posts of custom post types, you can create a custom post which matches the format of the custom post created by the event or calendar plugin.

    Here is an events plugin which uses custom post types:

  3. BF 3000, check out my reply in another post: http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/wp-all-in-one-event-calendar-wgravity-anyone#post-114066

    I think Chris hit it on the nail: Find a calendar plugin that utilizes custom post types. You could probably use the Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types plugin and the All-in-One Event Calendar to accomplish what you're trying to do.
