Get data from form and display it.

    I have created a form and are getting form submissions and can view the data in WordPress admin via the Forms entries page. That is nice.
    But I want to present/display the data on a page. (Not as a post, just pull and manipulate data from the entries). I have looked through the documentation and searched the forums but have not yet spotted a solution to this. I have previously used cforms and then get_cforms_entries( ) to get access to the form data.
    How on earth do I do it with this excellent plugin?
    (next step is to get the developers license so I can tap into the advanced forums..)

  2. What you may want to take a look at is the Gravity Forms Directory Add-On which is a 3rd party add-on available here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-addons/

    It allows you to display entry data on the frontend of your site.

    This type of functionality is on our roadmap and we will be building our own official add-on to handle both displaying and editing entry (and post) data on the front end later this year.

    Thanks for the reply.
    But where is the documentation on how to add/delete/change database entries/leads? I suppose I can read/use the forms_model.php but this information must be somewhere in a more easy to read format and with examples ...

  4. I have been using the recommended add on for a few days, and does all that you ask above. As this is not a Gravity Forms add on, they will not supply any documents on it. The add on though does have a brief video, and the settings are well laid out with descriptions on each setting.

    The support forum by the add-on though does not seems to be monitored by the developer.

    You may also find this add on useful http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-update-post/ but for me the directory fits my needs, although with a bit of hammering a square peg...

    I was hoping though that Gravity Forms own system would be out sooner than "later this year" as i did read somewhere on here "In May"

    Any idea when?

  5. Ditto, any idea how far off something official might be?
    Seems there are quite a few people looking for this kind of functionality...

    We no longer speculate on how long it will take us to get things done as we've taken on many new and cool developments (some of which will speed up our development of other add-ons). The official line is now "it will be released as soon as it is done". Too many people have gotten frustrated when we've speculated in the past. I appreciate the excitement though (we are pretty darn excited about the stuff we are working on as well). Wish I could give everyone concrete days, but if you've worked on a development project before, you'll know how concrete dates, never are...

  7. Anyway someone can tell me how I can take the entries and have them post on a page? Thanks!

  8. Steve, have you looked at the 3rd party Directory add-on? It was not created by us but might do what you're looking for.

  9. I saw this one already. What I need it to do is post to the website in a post. Is there instructions on how to do that?

  10. You want to create a post from a form submission? Just one post per submission? Please see here:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Form_Fields#Post_Fields

    You want to use Post Fields to build your form if you want to create posts from form submissions.
