Loan Calculator

    I'm about to start working on a project and one of the parts needed is going to be a loan calculator. I know there are a ton of calculators out there, but none for Gravity Forms, so I went ahead and made one.

    Right now I'm still in the "Proof of Concept" portion of the build, so there is no styling attached to it and it's a rather simple form. So you'll want to add your own flare to it. I'll upload a more advanced version of this when the project is completed.

    Sample Form: http://studio412design.com/loan-calc

    Here are the files you'll need: http://cl.ly/HBoS

    ZIP Includes:
    - loan-calculator.php
    -- This is a basic page template. No frills, just the needed formula and outputs.
    - gravityforms-export-2012-06-06.xml
    -- Export file of the sample form.

    Instructions:
    1: Import XML of sample form.
    2: Open loan-calculator.php in text editor.
    3: Change Gravity Form shortcode ID to the ID of your form. (Line 30)
    4: Upload loan-calculator.php to your theme folder.
    5: Create new page using the Loan Calculator as the template. (ex: http://domain.com/loan-calc)
    6: Edit the form confirmation redirect to point to the page you just made (http://domain.com/loan-calc). Leave all of the variables intact.

    That's it, hope that helps someone. Hit me up with any questions.

    - Nick

  3. Hi Nick,
    Any freelance work that you can offer n this form, adding a "down-payment" field to the form, simply subtracting from the initial amount to be financed I suppose?

    Thanks in advance, Mike G

  4. Nevermind Nick, this script works amazingly and I reconfigured the fields a little to achieve the down payment feature.

    Thanks for your post!
    Mike
