  2. Gravity Forms itself poses no limitations on how many fields you can have. However, sometimes there are a few different types of settings at the host level (I believe for security reasons) that do prevent large amounts of data to be saved. Reach out to your host to see if there are any types of error logs in relation to this and let me know what you find out.

    I had the same problem, so I contacted the web host per Rob's suggestion - they had a look, and said that our website was hitting a mod_security rule that needed to be whitelisted for our account.

    Very interesting teachingshop, thanks for letting us know. That is one more thing I can add to my list of things to have people check...

  6. I'm running into an issue where it won't save the form. Forget useablity. I can't even get the thing up and running. It's a brand new install of WP and no other addons running.

  7. @cpennycuff, please begin a new topic for your issue, as each issue in unique and needs to be addressed individually.

    Please describe what you are trying to do and what happens when you do it, and if there are any error messages displayed on screen.

    Normal troubleshooting steps include checking for theme and plugin conflicts (but you have no other active plugins, so you would just need to test for a theme conflict by activating the Twenty Twelve theme and checking again) and determining how much RAM your server has available for WordPress and Gravity Forms. Can you find that information out please, and include it in your new topic? Thank you.
