Integration with Flutter

  1. I make use of Flutter (Fresh Page) plugin quite a bit. I like that Gravity Forms can add data directly into the custom fields created by Flutter, however one thing that's missing is the ability to link the newly created post (by Gravity) to the write panel created by Flutter.

    What's happening now is that the post is being created & the fields populated, but this new post is not displaying in my custom write panel and the data thus isn't being called using the standard <? echo get('variable'); ?> command.

    Am I making sense? :P

    There's a hidden field in the flutter custom write panel, that attaches a post to the write panel:
    <input type='hidden' name="rc-custom-write-panel-verify-key" id="rc-custom-write-panel-verify-key" value="870862ff5f" />

    This could be correctly generated using wp_create_nonce(); like so:
    <input type="hidden" name="rc-custom-write-panel-verify-key" id="rc-custom-write-panel-verify-key" value="<?php echo wp_create_nonce('rc-custom-write-panel')?>" />

    Does anybody know how this could be integrated so that the end result is a post created by a user with Gravity Forms is attached to a write panel in Flutter...

    Here's hoping! :)
    Thanks

    Not an answer to your question, but Flutter will be "useless" with WordPress 2.9 coming up. Much better support for custom post types. Just like 2.8 introduced support for custom taxonomies. So it won't be long till the day that events are events instead of posts that look like events.

  4. btw, can you link to some documentation on those 'custom post types' you referred to?

    Not a lot has been written about this, but take a look at this.
