Integrating with Facebook

    It would be amazing that when someone submits a form that it prompts them to share what they just did (sign up for such and such, enter such-such contest, etc.) on Facebook.

    I can pretty much figure out how to make a Facebook "like" button display after they submit, but that's not good enough. I want it to prompt them to make a Facebook status update with pre-filled information that's connected to what action they just took using the form.

    Is this possible? Where should I start?

  2. Hi Kevin,

    A good place to start would be the Facebook documentation to see what is required on that front first:

    http://developers.facebook.com/

    After you understand the requirements from FB, Gravity Forms has a ton of hooks that can help you customize the form submission process:

    I would specifically check out the gform_post_submission hook which you could use to display anything you want on the page after the form has been submitted.

  3. It would be awesome if a front-end user could optionally use their Facebook ID in lieu of their name & email. see disqus

  4. This would be incredible! Maybe a shortcode from Sharebar or WP Socializer at the end could work. Having some sort of inbuilt "Include Social Share Field" in thank you message would be totally sweet.
