Form Uses

  1. selym

    Just want to mention that I wish everyone had read only access to the forums. I often search and find a post that is similar to my own questions, but then find I can't view it. :(

    Here's a few questions I have...hope you don't mind answering. :)

    -I need an event plugin for one site and nothing seems to be good enough. If GF can allow anonymous users to create/submit posts (events in this case), it might be all I need. I'm just not sure how the information would be formatted in the post and if it would take manual intervention to fix/format, etc.

    -Can anonymous users upload an image to a form and have that image posted to the post?

    -I know it wouldn't be ideal from a security stand point, but can you allow anonymous users to publish posts directly without it requiring admin approval?

  2. 1. Anonymous users can create and submit posts. You can assign the user they should be published by if the user is not logged in. The formatting can be done in two different ways. Easiest is to use the post content template feature of the form builder. There you can insert form fields and HTML which will be used to create your post body. The second way is to modify your theme's template to display the information coming from Gravity Forms, however you want. You have complete control over displaying the data that is captured by Gravity Forms

    2. You could probably allow an anonymous user to add an image to an existing post, but it's not something Gravity Forms will do out of the box, without customization. There are hooks available to do this, but it would require a little work and some thought.

    3. You can choose pending, draft or published for the posts created by Gravity Forms. If you want to send the post through without approval, Gravity Forms will let you do that.
