Destination of User's Post

    Problem: The form resides on Page B of my website. User-submitted data via Post Fields>Body is entered and submitted but publicly posts to Page A (Home/Blog page). This type of data doesn't require a lot of "prettying-up" or proofing since it is owned by the user not me, the site owner. However, that means it posts in an unpolished format.

    Goal: To route the submitted data to post only to the page that the form is parked (Page B). Since it is the content of the readers' I don't even need to edit them but may clean them up if I so choose.

    Example: Mr. Smith wants to write a short blurb about his visit to Wally's Bookstore. It should post live (simply text, images not needed) on the Review page NOT on the site's main (polished) page.

    Requesting: Help me understand if GF allows posting the data from form on Page B to Page B exclusively. Subsequent reader posts should go live on the the page the form resides almost like a commenting section. The difference is the blog post structure GF form data results in; otherwise I'd let people use the regular Wordpress Thesis theme (what I use) comments section to post their reviews.

  2. Gravity Forms creates blog posts. You specify what category those posts should be assigned to OR you include a Post Category field to allow the user to select which category it posts to.

    You would have to create a Category in WordPress for reviews. Tell Gravity Forms to create the posts and assign them to the Reviews category and then tell your page template for that page to display posts for only the Reviews category.

    Thanks. I JUST read this. I have asked my fellow Thesis support forum users about the logistics of implementing what you, Carl, suggested. I will keep you posted.
