@whitedog This forum post is an old post that was in regards to Gravity Forms v1.6.3 Beta 1 which is an old release. There are no known issues with the merge tag functionality in the current public release of Gravity Forms, nor any public release of Gravity Forms.
If the merge tag functionality wasn't working properly globally our support would be blowing up with users reporting the issue. This is the only forum post that has reported it so it's definitely not a plugin issue.
That isn't to say you aren't experiencing some kind of issue on your site, it just means the issue is likely isolated to your site and due to a theme or plugin conflict of some sort.
I just did a quick test and recorded a screencast showing the merge tag functionality in use with Gravity Forms v126.96.36.199.1, which is the current public release. You can view the screencast here:
I tested with Chrome as well as FireFox.
The first thing I would suggest you do is make sure you are using the current public release and not an old version of Gravity Forms and certainly not an old beta release like the original poster.
If you still have an issue, i'd be glad to look into it for you. I will need to debug the issue no your site itself as i'm unable to replicate it locally. In order to do so i'll need the URL of the site and a WordPress admin login so that I can take a look. You can send that information to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the future, please create your own support forum post to report an issue rather than replying to an existing... and old... post. Issues may appear to be related, but unless you are using Gravity Forms v1.6.3 Beta 1 like the original poster... they aren't related.
I am closing this forum post because the original post was in regards to an old beta version of Gravity Forms.
