Is it possible to create a Registration form?

    Hi,

    I was wondering if it was possible to create a registration form with this plugin?

    I noticed you mentioned something about this back in August 2009 on the Press this podcast with Yoast.

    Thanks
    Danny

  2. User registration isn't a built in feature. However there are numerous users using Gravity Forms to register a WordPress user by adding their own custom code and using the available API hooks to do so.

    Hi Carl,

    I just upgraded to the dev license today and started perusing the forums looking for an answer to the above posted Registration Form question.

    Can you share with us if custom made registration forms made through GF will ever be a possibility for us non-programmer types? I know there are a couple of (outdated) plugins out there, but this seems like a natural extension for GF. Maybe built-in, or as an add-on feature like Mail Chimp, etc.?

  4. Yes, we do plan on adding user registration capabilities as a native feature in the future. We are working on a new product as our primary focus right now and once that is out the door we will turn our attention back to major feature enhancements for Gravity FOrms.

    I second Danny...you've piqued our curiosity!

    ...and I KNOW that custom registration will be a HUGE hit for RG!!! On the edge of my seat!

  7. I need this feature, too.

    I would like users to get registered after they filled out the form, and I want users to be able to modify their profile after form submission (the data they submitted using the form).

  8. Will you ever implement this feature?

    Posted 9 years ago on Wednesday May 5, 2010 | Permalink
  9. Yes, we will. As Carl said, we are wrapping up another product and we will turn our attention to Gravity Forms when we are done. User registration is pretty high on the list, so it might make it into that first release.

  10. Make use of the new function found in Wordpress 3.0:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_login_form

    Allows you to display the login form anywhere.

    Unfortunately, I need this plugin for user registration. If the users cannot modify their submitted data later, then I cannot use this plugin.

  11. Just wanted to toss my support behind this feature! I needed this last week! I am trying to accomplish this with Pie-Register, but it isn't as elegant or easy to use as GF. Also what is the new product?

    Posted 9 years ago on Friday May 21, 2010 | Permalink
  12. We do plan on incorporating user registration capabilities. We have a LOT of big plans for Gravity Forms so keep watching.

    I can't give any details on the new product, but people are going to love it. We won't be announcing it until it is ready to launch. Shouldn't be too much longer now... hopefully June.

    I want to add my support to a custom registration form that uses the Wordpress function in 3.0. It will be huge for those of us who use Wordpress but are more on the marketing side than the coding side of websites.

  14. @Carl-

    Sounds exciting and can't wait to see it! I'd also like to put in a plug for the ability to design a form that updates user info--basically passes it to WP without having to go through admin-looking pages. I guess I'm thinking about this bit of functionality as something distinct from creating a new user.

    Thanks for a great plugin!

  15. "hopefully June."

    July now :) Any movement towards this?

    Posted 9 years ago on Monday July 19, 2010 | Permalink
  16. Yes, Lots of movement, but it's taking a bit longer than we originally expected to get everything done. Its better to do it right than get in a big rush.

    Posted 9 years ago on Monday July 19, 2010 | Permalink
  17. Hey Kevin, when you refer to movement, are you talking about the new project that was scheduled to be release in June, or the user registration? I'm just being curious! I agree 100% to do it right!

    Posted 9 years ago on Wednesday July 21, 2010 | Permalink
  18. Sorry Scott. I was referring the the new project. We're still adding features and doing enhancements to Gravity Forms as well, but something like the user registration probably won't be out until after we introduce the new project.

  19. Not to be a party pooper but (and I'll try to put this delicately) the "new product is coming" speech has been reused on here for over 6 months.. I know how it can be juggling things around but quite honestly, if that new project is causing GF/addons etc to be put on the back burner that would be like me telling one of my clients that I'm blowing them off until I finish some changes to my own site, but I'm not quite sure when that will be.

    It would have been much better to never use that reason than to use it over and over and keep pushing the date back. I know we are a demanding bunch :) but there are a few things that many have asked about for quite some time and it would be awesome to start to see some movement in those directions..

  20. Jesse,

    There's plenty of movement. Actually, Gravity Forms version 1.3.13 was released today and adds several new (highly requested) features and enhancements like importing/exporting forms, inline HTML content and more. There's also a lot of other Gravity Forms development happening concurrent with the other projects.

    There's no making excuses here nor any "back burner" that Gravity Forms is on. We never stated that we were halting development on the forms for any reason. We're actively working on Gravity Forms and also working to diversify our business and our product offerings.

    I'm sure you're waiting for a few specific features as well are many other people. It just takes time to go down the feature list and some things have a broader appeal than others so they're going to get done first. Sure a registration form is something a lot of people want, but more people are requesting PayPal integration so that's probably going to be the next big add-on.

    Keep in mind that these are feature requests and not bug fixes people are waiting on and we never committed to any specific release schedule.

    Registered users are eligible for updates as they become available whenever that may be. We do try to release new features as often as possible, but quality has to take precedence over rushing something out the door.

  21. I hear ya Kevin and I understand... I'm just like a 5 year old waiting for Santa.. if I get told hes coming on Friday I will sit up all night waiting, and waiting.. and well, you know how it goes lol..

    As for me, the PayPal integration is what I have been waiting on, for what seems like an eternity :D so hearing that will be first sits very very well with me.

    Posted 9 years ago on Wednesday July 21, 2010 | Permalink
  22. Jesse, thanks for the reply. Trust me, we want to get these things done as quickly as we can for everyone. Honestly, we want to use the new toys too and believe me, I'm far from the most patient person so I get antsy waiting on new goodies.

    PayPal integration is the next big thing on the list so we'll get it out to you as soon as we can. It's a little more involved than some of the others because there will have to be some new calculation field types added in to support even basic PayPal functionality and we're trying to make sure everything is architected properly so it works well and it's also as easy as possible to use.

    As always, we appreciate the feedback and your continued patience. We'll try to get the Christmas list covered as quickly as we can.

  23. Just want to add my voice to the clamor for a registration form setup!

    Posted 8 years ago on Thursday July 29, 2010 | Permalink
  24. Wanted to find out the status of the 'register users' feature. I see v.1.4 is about to be released, but I don't know if that feature is included in this new release.

    If it's not, how exactly can I connect user information submitted through a Gravity Form into the built-in user fields in WordPress?

    UPDATE: I'm reading this post by newport (http://forum.gravityhelp.com/topic/integration-with-wordpress-users#post-6658) and it seems to show what code to use. Now I just need to test it myself.

  25. Hi, Love this product! I'm new at this and I wonder if I can use GF to create polls and display results as I currently do for Poll daddy. I would rather invest in one product.

    Posted 8 years ago on Wednesday August 18, 2010 | Permalink
  26. Any news on this? There is this addon, but only available for the dev license: http://www.gravityhelp.com/gravity-forms-user-registration-add-on-v1-0-beta-1-released/

    You could merge this addon into the main codebase. How about that?

    My question: can the user edit the submissions later? Or once the user registered, the fields aren't editable anymore by the same user?

    Posted 8 years ago on Friday December 17, 2010 | Permalink
  27. @toth User Registration won't be added to the main codebase. User Registration is a niche need and not something that would be used by the average Gravity Forms user and therefore it isn't something we would add to the core. It would only cause code bloat. We add features to the core that will be used by most users and leave specialized functionality and use cases to Add-Ons.

    Gravity Forms does not allow users to edit form entries. The user registration add-on creates a user, so if he wants to edit his user account after he has registered then you would have to give him access to the profile editor that is built into WordPress. Gravity Forms simply creates the user.

    Is there any update to this?

    I really need to be able to find a way for users to submit a listing on my site (via a simple gravity form), then allow them to edit the form they created.

    I thought making a copy of the form, and setting it to "edit" (vs. the original "create"), then setting the access level to "only the original submitter" would work. But it does not.

    Again, all I need is to allow users to use a gravity form to create a standardized post, and have a specific link that takes them to a form that simply allows them to edit the existing form content.

    Thanks a ton for the help!
