Display description and hide form fields based on cookie value

  1. Stylmark

    Is it possible using the gform_pre_render to either render the form as normal or just display the description based on a cookie value? I'm looking to build a voting system that only allows one submission per day and I want to have the form description be used as the displayed text when a form has already been submitted.

  2. I think gform_pre_render is too late.

    I would probably approach it either in the page template. Put the function call to the form there. Wrap it in a conditional based on whether or not the cookie value is true or false. If the form has been submitted, display the "only one submission per day" message instead of the form.

    There might be a WordPress plugin that restricts access to content based on the value of a cookie as well, but I have not ever looked for one.

    I think gform_pre_render is the wrong way to approach it.
