Creating a complete post with form

  1. Hi, I'm new to Gravity Forms.. literally about 4 hours.

    I just installed it on one of my website http://photowalklist.com/submit but I can't figure out how to make my form create a post automatically. I know I can use custom fields I would need the Date and Time to merge into whatever they put in the "Photowalk Info" / Body of the post. I'm a little confused at that.

  2. Scott,
    You will need to add the fields under the "Post Fields" to your form (i.e. Post Title, Post Body, etc...). Once you do that, Gravity Forms will automatically create a post for you.
    So if you would like the "Photowalk Info" to be your post body, you need to make that field and "Post Body" field.
    Merging other fields into the post body will require the use of one of our hooks and some PHP knowledge.

  3. Thank you for the reply. I figured the merging is more difficult.

    I did create a test submit to create a post and it worked http://photowalklist.com/quick-submit
