Database Category Issues

  1. Hi Gravity Forms,

    I have recently purchased my own license and I just wanted to mention this inquiry is a re-post of one from "Ad Question" - http://goo.gl/RvBcm.

    I have some questions regarding the use of the plugin.

    Plugins I am using:
    Gravity Forms (Version 1.6.5.1)
    Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types (Version 3.0.1) - http://goo.gl/GtXnr

    Based on the Plugin, an Ad consists of: title, price, description, images and categories.

    BEHAVIOR:

    Currently, the plugin does the following when an ad is created: title, price, description and images are saved in separated tables for each school (ex: for school with ID=1, this data will be save into tables that have a prefix like "wp_1_post_data")

    Currently, categories are only save into specified table "wp_4_terms_relationship", not each school site.

    QUESTIONS:

    Is this the correct behavior? If category data is only going into one table, when all other category data is added into each school theme/site, somehow, categories for Ads might be missed or duplicated.

    Currently this behavior is causing issues with Ads displaying properly in different sites, so I’d like to confirm if this is a bug, or correct behavior. If it’s correct, what do you suggest for resolving the multiple site issues?

    Please let me know if you need additional information to help us solve this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. By default, Gravity Forms entries will be stored only for the site where the form is embedded. Are you saying entries are being stored in multiple sites database tables (wp_4_, wp_1, etc)? If so, I don't think Gravity Forms is doing that. Is there some other plugin on your site which allows for posts to be made on one site and replicated to the other sites?

    Can you troubleshoot by checking for theme and plugin conflicts by using these instructions http://rkt.gs/testing ?

    I'm not sure if the Custom Post Types plugin is doing this or not. But if you deactivate it, can you create a new form to create a post, and see if that post ends up on multiple sites?

    Are you using any custom code in your theme's functions.php which would affect Gravity Forms?
