Forms in Thickbox

  1. hittheroadjack

    I tried to put one of my forms into a thickbox, but no success.
    I found out, that I have to enqueue the scripts for the form - done in header.php just before wp_head (). Still no success : the conditional logic does not work at all but I can use simple forms and i.e. upload images from the thickbox form.
    Here is my code:

    <?php if ( is_singular() ) { wp_enqueue_script( 'comment-reply' ); }
    	gravity_form_enqueue_scripts(20, FALSE);
    	gravity_form_enqueue_scripts(21, FALSE);?>
    <?php  wp_head(); ?>
    <?php $theme->hook('head'); ?>


    <input class="thickbox" title="Feld für den Titel" type="button" value="Wartungs-Menü" alt="#TB_inline?height=700&width=400&inlineId=examplePopup1" />
    <!-- </div>-->
    <div id="examplePopup1" style="display: none;">
    <div style="float: left; padding: 10px;"><img src="" alt="" width="150" height="168" /></div>
    Erläuterungen für das Wartungsmenü
    /*			   print do_shortcode('[gravityform id="20" name="Test-Formular attachments"]');*/
    			   gravity_form(20, false, false, false, '', false);
    			   <strong>Ausserhalb klicken um zu schliessen..</strong></div>

    I am using WP3.3.1 de_DE and GF 1.6.1.
    I can't figure out what's wrong? Can someone help, please?

  2. Hello Hittheroadjack,

    Is this something you are still attempting to setup? If so, please share a link where the current setup can be previewed and I will take a look. :)

    Yes and no!
    No, in terms of this approach: I used "form lightbox plugin" by and this solved above problem.
    Yes in terms of another form I try to setup. The form is more complicated having a tinyMCE-Editor in a textarea activated through a HTML field. This textarea ( and the editor) are non-reactive when showing in form lightbox.
    I am not very sure where the problem is : tinyMCE, GF or form lightbox plugin.
    On the other hand, I am still hoping to get a wp_editor solution for textareas in GF pretty soon. This might solve the whole issue anyway. Any hope?

  4. Hi hittheroadjack,

    Not sure when front end support for wp_editor() will be added to Gravity Forms but it is something we are definitely planning to add.

    Do you have a link where your current setup can be viewed?

  5. I am doing this on my site. Try using the Easy FancyBox plugin then set your link up like this example:

    <a title="Contact Us" href="#fancyboxID-1" rel="nofollow">Ask a Question</a>

    Then you need to add this code to page...

    <div style="display:none" class="fancybox-hidden"><div id="fancyboxID-1">[gravityform id="1" ajax="true"]</div></div>

    Of course change your gravity form id number to match your form. You can see an example on my site then click the button in the left box.

    Here is a link for reference Hope that helps you out.
