Looking to Post to Plugin Specific Fields

  1. I'm not quite sure how else to put this, however I'm going to try to be as eloquent as possible. I'm looking to utilize Gravity's form to post features, however I have unique, plugin based fields that need to be populated in order for the site to function.

    Here is a link to what a post page looks like with which I would like to design a Gravity form around.

    Simply put, I'd like to know if this is possible with Gravity's software.

    We are building a website to function as a directory for massage therapists. We want to be able to have practitioners visit our site to submit a profile listing into our directory. In this case, we are using posts as the profile listings. The purpose of the form is to allow massage therapists to fill out the form on the site without granting them direct access to a WordPress login. Once submitted, we need to have the form submit to a post. I know Gravity can accomplish this much, however there are a couple plugins we are utilizing that make the site work as a directory site that must be filled out in the New Post page via a form.

    My concerns are with the following fields:

    Product Entry:
    Just a couple fields need to be filled out in order to activate the profile post as an item in the shopping cart: "Product Description" and "Product Options"

    WP Places Locator:
    Only one field should need to be filled out: "3) Address Lookup" The system should automatically load the latitude and longitude coordinates to allow for the post to be identified as a location.

    Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Basically, if this can be accomplished with Gravity, I will be more than elated to purchase a license.

  2. This can all be accomplished with Gravity Forms, but the integration is going to take some programming on your part.

    Gravity Forms will record the data. Gravity Forms can populate custom fields if your posts require certain information be stored in custom fields. It can also populate data in other places using the gform_after_submission filter. For example, I'm not sure where the product description and product options values are stored, so I can't explain exactly how to do it, but I know it can be done.

    Regarding the WP Places Locator, do you mean this plugin?

    It looks like that works in conjunction with an address which is stored in your post, maybe the address is submitted via the form. Wherever that plugin needs to read the data, and whatever format is required, you can store the information you record in whatever format is required. I'm not sure exactly how that plugin will work, but I am certain you could put the data in the right format and the right place for that plugin to read it.

    You can accomplish all this integration with Gravity Forms. I'm not sure how easy it will be or if there will be any PHP required, but nothing you've asked about is impossible with Gravity Forms.

  3. Thank you for the response. This does shed some light on the subject, and will undoubtedly assist me in the future.

    It's always tough to committing to something via payment, when you don't know whether it would be able to accomplish a specific objective.
