  2. would also love to use the simpler captcha.

    Has any one else done this?

  3. The default captcha uses the reCAPTCHA service. If you want to use a simple captcha you can install the Really Simple Captcha plugin which adds additional options to the captcha field in Gravity Forms. It lets you pick the size and colors associated with the captcha.

    As for how to display data in a popup, this should be doable with a modal window that is inline rather than framing in other content. You'd have to find a script that lets you do a modal window like this. It isn't something Gravity Forms does.

  4. Hi Carl,

    Thanks for all your help so far. The tip for installing really simple captcha is great and i think im going to start using that every time.

    2nd getting the content to display should not be that hard, the question is how do i capture the url or the page the form is on?

    The form is on one of the templates of our custom post type. There is over 500 villa at this time. We need to know what villa the visitor was looking at when they filled out the form. Any tips/guidance on that part? This might be a really simple thing.

    Thanks again,
    -James

  5. FIXED

    gravity forms already had options for the title and url of the post/custom post type to be added to the message.

    '{embed_post:post_title} : {embed_url}'

    Then I used jQuery to clone and append to the popup. I figured already using jQuery for the popup and with out it the js the form would not work.

  6. Correct, you can use the merge tags for these values. Glad you figured it out.
