I read a recent post that Carl said:
Using Gravity Forms to create a Post is super easy. There are a group of fields in the Form Editor called Post Fields. It consists of the following fields:
- Post Title
- Post Body
- Post Excerpt
- Post Category
- Post Tag
- Post Image
- Post Custom Field
All you do is add those fields to your form (at a minimum the Post Title and Post Body fields) just like any other field and when the form is submitted a post will be created using the information entered in those fields.
There isn't really much to it other than that.
Does this mean that we can only use those fields? What if I have my own form with several unique fields? Is it possible to take the entire results of all the fields with their labels and create a post that way? The only other way that I can think of is to take the submitted email and copy and paste that into a new Post by hand. My client would prefer that the post gets created dynamically.
In another post Carl said:
The Post Body is already a regular form field that people can fill in, however it is only one field and does not consist of multiple fields.
In order to combine multiple fields into the Post Body what you would have to do is use PHP and the pre-process form hook to combine the fields and populate the Post Body. This would require some PHP knowledge to pull off.
How familiar with PHP are you?
I'd like to get this information that you were possibly going to share.
I am an intermediate with PHP coding - just enough to get myself into trouble but well enough to understand what I see.
Thank you for your help!
