Form data access

  1. 1. Once data has been submitted via a form, is it possible to pull that data back out for display within our WP website? If so, is there shortcodes to pull specific records? Or, can we pull directly from the GF database tables? We want to use GF to build a Directory, but aren't clear on how we can pull the data back out.

    2. We have a WP Theme that includes a Portfolio section with specific fields and a template to display those items. We want to use the Portfolio as a directory. Is it possible to map fields from a submitted GF form to the applicable database table fields for the Portfolio?

    Hi cubiccreative,

    There is a third party directory add-on for Gravity Forms that might help you do what you need. Gravity Forms doesn't display data on the front end by default. It can create WordPress posts with the right fields in place, and you can pull the data via the tables used to store it, but that can get complicated.

    Check this out and see if it fits what you need:

  3. That plugin is close. However, the biggest issue is being able to control how the data is displayed. So, I think I would have to write the code to pull the data from the database directly even with this plugin.

    Well, looking at how that plugin pulls the data will probably get you most the way there. You might even be able to just change its display files to get it to work how you need.
