Dynamically Populate Based on Post Name

  1. Is there a way to dynamically populate a "Single Line Text" field with the name of the post it is inserted into?

    There is no easy way to do it. You would have to grab the title using WordPress' built-in functions and using out gform_pre_render push it to the field you want.

    All my best!

  3. Thanks for the head start. Works like a charm and not too much code. Here is a reference for people later. Post in your functions.php file

    add_filter("gform_pre_render", "populate_post_name");
    function populate_post_name($form){
    	global $post;
    	    if($form["id"] != 2) // Change [2] to the ID of the form you want to use
    	       return $form;
    		$post_name = get_the_title($post->ID);
    		$form["fields"][3]["defaultValue"] = $post_name ; //Change [3] to the nth (-1) field you want to populate.
    		return $form;
    
    }
