Fields not visible on admin post or custom post

  1. Hello,

    I just bought GravityForms which is said to be a very good plugin to go with Myreviewplugin (although the support doesn't seem to exist?).

    I'm trying to create a blog with products reviews. I wanted to use gravityforms with myreviewplugin to write more informations about products (target, price, frequency, etc), given that some products have several pricing plans.

    I tried to use Gravity Forms + Custom Post Types and several Custom post types creators but I can't manage to see Gravity forms fields on the administrator side.

    My goal is to populate the website with about 100/200 products reviews and then let user submit their own reviews.

    Could you assist me on this?

    Thanks a lot,
    Thomas

  2. I think the best approach is to use the Custom Post Types plugin. You will have to figure out with that plugin author why it is not working for you.

  4. We can't provide support for 3rd party plugins.

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-custom-post-types/

    It is possible that the plugin needs to be updated to work with the latest WordPress and Gravity Forms. Please contact the plugin author or view their support site to see if the issue has already been addressed. Thank you.

  5. OK I understand. I think I managed to make it work.

    Newbie question, how do I display forms results into my posts?

    If you want form fields to be pushed into your posts, then in our Post Fields (like title or body) we have something called Content Template that allows you to insert merge tags from other fields. This will allow you to organize the details as well.

    I hope that helps.

  7. Hi David,

    Thanks for your reply. Where do I find "Post Template" ? is-it a plugin or an option in gravity forms?

    It is in the settings for the Post Fields.

  9. Sorry but I can't find it.

    Bought Gravity because it was told to be a good addition to myreviewplugin but I cannot manage
    1/ Link custom fields (although this is one under advanced options
    2/ Add prices of the products depending of the duration. (like here by example http://www.elegantthemes.com/preview/TheProfessional/shortcodes/#pricing)

    Can you assist me, I am totally stuck on this...

    Try adding a Post Content/Body field to your form. Then look for Post Template in the settings for that field.

    I am not sure if you can get it styled exactly the way you want, nor am I entirely sure what you are looking for.

  11. I tried that way, I found the "Post template", pressed "save form" but I still see nothing happening in the post section.

    Myreviewplugin is handling pretty well the review part and I was expecting from GravityForms to handle the products informations :
    - Phone number
    - Twitter account
    - ...
    - Prices and paid plans.

    Maybe Gravityforms doesn't make sense for that? Myreviewplugin doesn't seem to answer since a couple of months but he was strongly pushing for Gravityforms.

    I could open an admin account to you if you can check.

    Or if you think there's not the option I should just get a refund and find another plugin;

    Thanks!

    I thought we were discussing how to get your Gravity Forms fields into a WordPress post, am I incorrect about that? You might have a good idea of what you want to have happen, but we are just taking the information you give us and trying to come up with the best solution. So please, the more information you can give to break down what you've done and what is and isn't working, the better we can help.

    If you have created a Post Template, and then filled out your form, then the WordPress post created should conform to how you set up the post template.

    I don't know the MyReviewPlugin you are talking about, and can't comment on that.

  13. I understand.

    I have been using "Types" to create a Post template.

    But to tell you the truth the whole path between creating template, creating custom field, editing it on the admin side and having it published is quite unclear to me.

    That's the point I'd like some help about.

    I can give you a ton of details about my projet but I do not wish to publish it on this forum...

  14. khazd0rf....

    Click on Forms...Form Editor to edit your existing form. On the right hand side of the screen you will see Standard Fields, Advanced Fields, and Post Fields. Click on Post fields and click on the ones you need to use for your form. For instance, I used Title, Category, and Image. Now if you click Edit by Title, you will see some options appear. The most important to set is Post Status to Published. That will tell Gravity Forms to create a post for you with the information that was entered into your form.

    Hope this helps.

  15. Thanks Jmonroe,

    I did this! but how do you fill the customized fiields on your post ?
    My concern is if I use Types it puts a wcpf at the begning of the customized fields but myreview template needs to have a double "-" to display it.

    Maybe theres another plugin to do it the way I want.

    Or anyone here managed to configure GravityForms to work perfectly with myreviewplugin?

  16. Honestly. I have never used myreview plugin so I am not really sure. Can we see your site so we can better visualize what you are wanting to do?

  17. Hi Jmonroe, thanks a lot for your answer.

    I can give you an Admin access because there's nothing to see on the front end at this time. I'm trying to build the structure and connect the plugins the best way together before producing content.

    From what I understand most of the time GF is used to let visitors participate and create content. On a first time I'd like to use it to manage the custom fields and make them visible (when they are filled) on the posts contents.

    The thing is Types is great at creating custom post types and I can connect it to GravityForm using the methods explained by Yoast and others. Problem is Types makes custom fields start with a wcfp (which is understood by GF) but I can't manage to have the content displayed on my posts.

    Myreviewplugins does that but need to have custom fields starting with "--" which is not possible on Types. I'm running in circle :(

  18. @khazd0rf, we don't recommend sharing admin access to your site in these forums with anyone other than individuals with a rocketgenius.com email (that's us.)

  19. Hi Chris, thanks, you are right.

    I am just a little bit annoyed not to find out how to set everything up ;-/

    Posted 9 years ago on Wednesday December 26, 2012 | Permalink
  20. You may need to hire a developer to help you with your integration. You're trying to integrated three separate plugins, all with different ways of doing things. Gravity Forms will capture the data for use, and the Types plugin will recognize those custom fields. However, it seems like Myreviewplugin has an inflexible requirement in the way the custom fields need to be named. If there is no way around that, maybe Types and Gravity Forms need to use custom field names which begin with "--". However, since that is a paid plugin, we don't have a copy of it here, and we can't help with the configuration of that.

    Seems like you will either need to use custom field names in the format that Myreviewplugin needs, in both Gravity Forms and Types, or you will need some sort of filter between the custom fields and the Myreviewplugin.

  21. Thanks Chris, good thinking.

    Do you know where I can find developers with a good knowledge of gravityforms? (I have a small budget...)
