Editing plugin files to change the print table layout?

  1. Hi, My dentist client is using GravityForms to collect lengthy new patient information. The staff prints the entries, and enters the data into their dental practice software. They want to reduce the amount of paper they are wasting. I want to change the layout of the table from this (2 rows):

    <tr> <td colspan="2" class="entry-view-field-name">Date of Birth</td>                               </tr>
    <tr><td colspan="2" class="entry-view-field-value">05/09/1973</td> </tr>

    to one row.

    Which Gravity Forms files contain this html code? Thanks!

    <tr><td class="entry-view-field-name">Date of Birth</td>
          <td class="entry-view-field-value">05/09/1973</td></tr>

  2. I found the html for the table in entry_detail.php and print.css. There's an inline style in the entry_detail file too.

    I saved copied of these edited files so that I can restore after an update - but just wondered if they would be used by wp and gf if I added them to my child theme folder?

  3. They would not be used by WordPress if you included them in your child theme.

    If you want to avoid problems with upgrading in the future, you can craft your own notification email in whatever format works best for you. But if this solution works, just remember to keep track of your changes so you can reapply them whenever you update your Gravity Forms installation.
