How do I stop automatic draft post creation when someone fills in contact form

  1. Alex Webley

    I have used a simple contact form on this page:

    http://psychewizard.com/contact-psyche-wizard/

    Only standard fields are used (no post fields).

    Every time someone sends me a message, Gravity Forms creates an 'Entry', which is fine. It ALSO creates a draft POST.

    How do I stop Gravity Forms from automatically creating a POST whenever someone emails me please?

    I have looked in the forum, the help files and searched on Google without success.

    Thank you.

    Gravity Forms only creates a post upon submission if post fields are used. If you aren't using post fields, and a post draft is still being made, then maybe a plugin conflict is at play. Can you try the following please?

    Hello David,

    I confirm that the issue is still present, even when ALL plugins apart from Gravity Forms are deactivated.

    I also confirm that the issue is still present when running the default Twenty Ten theme
