default date of form (set to 2 days in the future)

  1. So I'm working with a pretty custom form. I've got a function in there that is trying to "schedule" the form, and as far as I can tell, it works.

    The draw, it requires a date input into the form. I do NOT want a user to have to select a date. I want the date to automatically be 2 days in the future.

    Say, someone uses the form on Monday, I want the date picker input to be set to Wednesday by default. Is there a way to do that? or even hourly, ie 48 hours?

  2. In this case, you might want to just populate your date field with a function in your theme's functions.php using the gform_pre_render hook. Before the form is rendered, determine the current date, and set this date field to 48 hours from it.

  3. Hi thirdriver!

    Did you get a solution for it? I'm working on the same thing, only mine needs to be set to expire 30 days to the future. I really don't have background with code so any detailed info would help.

    Thanks
