Dynamically populating name and country

  1. Hello

    I have the following questions before I buy the subscription:

    1. Is dynamically populating name fields of already logged in users possible?
    2. Is dynamically populating country field possible by inquiring the users IP address?
    3. Multi Columned forms is that possible and
    4. Is the plugin responsive and retina ready?

  2. 1. Yes. If the user is logged in to your site, you can populate many fields in the form from values stored in their profile. You would set the default value of the field using these merge tags:

    • {user:first_name}
    • {user:last_name}
    • {user:display_name}
    • {user:user_email}
    • {user:user_login}
    • {user:[meta_key]}

    Documentation can be found here:

    2. You could use something like GeoIP or the equivalent in a WordPress plugin, then use the gform_pre_render function to set the form field value.

    3. Yes, you can see all our built in CSS classes for columns here:


    • gf_left_half
    • gf_right_half
    • gf_left_third
    • gf_middle_third
    • gf_right_third

    4. No specific considerations were made to make Gravity Forms responsive, although I have had good experiences with Gravity Forms on mobile devices. You can also override any of the Gravity Forms CSS, or turn off the Gravity Forms CSS altogether, and rely on your responsive theme to do the work for the form fields.

    No work has been done specifically to make the plugin Retina ready.
