Creating a Post w/ Section Breaks

  1. I've just purchased Gravity Forms in the hopes of adding some things to my World of Warcraft guild's website.

    One of the things we're adding are character sheets that are filled out by our users and then automatically post.

    I figured out that in order to have the information populate the page, it must come from the Post options, however I would like my section breaks to post as well, to keep everything organized.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

  2. Okay, for some reason when I create a form using the post options, it does not post any of the written information filled into the form. I've tried using standard form options and post form options and so far nothing shows.

    I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I've read a crap ton of the FAQs and Guides but clearly I'm missing a very important piece of information.

    Any help is very, very much appreciated.

  3. Sorry to bump this, but it seems I've fallen to page three and I'm worried that no one will ever see it.

    I've been trying to figure this out on and off for a year and have never been successful in figuring out why it's not working the way I need it to.

    The ability to create this character form is the entire reason I invested in this particular plugin.

    Thank you again, in advance.

  4. Can you share a URL to the page where the form is located, so we can see the section breaks you're talking about, and also a link to a post on your site as an example of what you want this to look like?

    By default, when creating a post with a Gravity Form, the post title and post body are the only parts of the form submission used. You can insert all your other captured data into the post body if you want, using the Content Template. This is a checkbox on the post body field. Check "Create content template" box, and then in the textarea below, insert the merge tags for the captured form data, using the drop down. That will put the data into your post. You will need to add HTML so that you are not just display a bunch of plain text.

    To add section breaks, you will have to add the appropriate HTML into this content template.

  5. Thank you so much for all of your help! I couldn't rightly understand the whole post body thing but you put it into such plain terms that I finally understand how it's supposed to work.

    I spent some time working on everything tonight and got it working perfectly. We're very happy that we went with Gravity Forms.

    Thanks again!
