Echo contents of a form in a widget

    Is the a way to echo the contents of a form through a php widget? I want to use it to create an event item, with a time, date, room numer, and agenda details, and loop through all non expired events, and put them in a sidebar widget space. Is there a helper for that? I have not seen any examples for echo'ing individual columns within a form, much less, crating a report. Thanks in advance.

  2. Hello, i'm a little confused as to what exactly you want to do based on the description you provided. Can you elaborate some more and then I can determine if it's possible right now. Thanks!

    I want to write some php code that will loop through the data and print out the items in the database. I am not sure what kind of schema you use. Basically something like the loop for posts, but just for the data I have created.

  4. So you want to loop through and display form entry data on the front end?

    There isn't anything to do that right now. We have plans for introducing a shortcode and function in the future for displaying entry data on the frontend (ex. for event registration you could display a list of the registered attendees) but it doesn't exist yet.

    You could write PHP that displays information from the table that entry data is stored in based on the form id.

    Yes, that is what I want. What tables would I need to look at?

    thanks,

  6. Entry data is stored in a few different tables. If you look at them one by one starting with the first one I list below you will see how they are related to each other. The 2 you will primarily be concerned with are:

    - rg_lead
    - rg_lead_detail

    Obviously the table names will vary slightly as they will have your WordPress database prefix in front of them.

    We plan on adding this functionality as a plugin feature in the future, but I don't have a timetable. But it's on the to do list.

    Sounds great. That is the one thing I still use pods for now, and then I could probably use this for about everything.
