Form memory

    I am considering purchasing Gravity forms to get around a number of problems found in other offerings. One is quite annoying - the form remembers the last user name and email address used. Sometimes even when the site is logged off and started again. I want to post and the forget - no carry over. Will Gravity Forms have this problem?

  2. I am not sure I fully understand the issue you are describing, but Gravity Forms does not try to "remember" the last user name and email address used. They will be blank unless you have specified a default value for the field in the form editor.
    I hope that answers your question.

  3. It's probable that you're encountering a form "autofill" function that's unrelated to a specific form or plugin.

    Many browsers actually have autofill options that are turned on by default. Most of the add-on toolbars add this type of functionality as well. They look for standard field names like "email", "name", "address", etc. and will automatically fill them with the last value that's been stored. Password field values aren't usually stored for security purposes.

    This is supposed to be a time saver and while some people enjoy this functionality, it's not for everyone.

  5. Jim, you may be able to use something like this jQuery snippet to override any autocomplete feature. You'll need to view the source of your page, grab the actual form ID and replace the #gform_X with your form number... something more like #gform_8.

    <script type="text/javascript">
    	jQuery(document).ready(function() {
     		jQuery("#gform_X").attr("autocomplete", "off");
    	});
     </script>
