Gravity Forms with Tab Slide

  1. There was mention of this issue by someone else a short while ago, but they never found a solution or did and never posted the outcome.

    I am looking to use GF within a widgeted slide-out tab. The plugin I have installed is "tab slide", and the form displays exactly the way I wanted it to within the tab. For configuration, I set tab slide to "widgeted" area, used gf form widget within it. However, when you click submit on the form, it takes the visitor to a blank page that is only displaying the form itself, and doesn't even submit the form.

    When I used the inspector to examine what the issue was, the action is calling to "wp-content/plugins/tab-slide/templates/Widget.php" which is causing the error. I know that is on the other side of the issue, and I am contacting the author of the plugin as well to see if we can put this to rest. I would just like to know if there is someone within this community/company that might be able to assist with this issue in the mean time.

    The tab-slider is displayed on every page, here's a link.

    Thanks in advance!

  2. What are your other choices other than "widgeted" area? Seems like it's a configuration issue with Tab Slide. Is this the correct plugin?

  3. Yes, that is the correct plugin.

    Instead of widgeted config, you can chose from Subscribe, WPLogin, Post, Picture, Video, and custom. I will attempt to use post or custom then report back asap. Hopping on a conference call for the next 2hrs, so I'll check back afterwards.

  4. Ok, I tried using the Post option. When it displays the post, it only shows the shortcode for the form, not the form itself.

    When I tried using the custom option, i needed to create a .php file that calls the form directly and input the url to it. here's the entire contents of the .php file that i created and linked to:

    <?php gravity_form(1, false, false, false, '', false); ?>

    but it returns this error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function gravity_form() in xxx/xxxx/xxx/wp-content/plugins/tab-slide/templates/gform.php on line 1

  5. That's bizarre. That function should be available if Gravity Forms is active. You can also try this in a template file:

    <?php do_shortcode('[gravityform id=1 name=FormName title=false ajax=false]'); ?>

  6. just tried that as well, another error:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function do_shortcode() in /xxx/xxx/xxx/xxx/wp-content/plugins/tab-slide/templates/gform.php on line 1

    just to be clear that i don't have a mental deficiency, let's say i create a new file in a text editor, (text wrangler/mac) in this new text file, i just paste the code: '<?php do_shortcode('[gravityform id=1 name=FormName title=false ajax=false]'); ?>' then save that file as gform.php. i upload that file via ftp to the directory that it's supposed to go to, paste the url of the php file into the input field in tab slide config.

    is there anything else i should be adding to the php file? does the fact that im using genesis framework/theme make any difference? thanks for looking into this!

  7. That do_shortcode function is built in to WordPress. It's like the Tab Slide plugin is not including any of the functions it needs to. I would bring that up with the author of that plugin. I don't think you're doing anything incorrectly but I am not familiar with that plugin at all.

  8. thank you very much for your help with this. i will keep you posted on any communications and the outcome.

    in the mean time, do you know of any other plugins that will allow this sort of action to happen?

  9. I have not investigated that functionality at all. Please let us know what happens. Seems like there might be some trick to make this plugin work. Thanks.

  10. I would like everyone to know the developer of the plugin has fixed the issue in the latest update. It works flawlessly (tmk) for anyone wanting to explore options of forms within a slide-out tab, I highly recommend this plugin.
