i've already gone through the forum with no success.
My case: One form for non-registered users to submit content. in the form i have chosen a default user as people who submit the information are non-registered users.
i'd like to show in my wordpress theme not the default author but the name of the person who submitted the content and who filled the field "name" instead of the default user, as the content is not submitted by the default author.
there are 2 options: (i) use the registration add-on that allows you to submit content+ make the user who submits the content the "author". it's quite straightforward BUT, if the user comes again and wants to submit new content, it's not possible in that form as a validation message pop up due to his email/username already exist!. I don't want to give users acces to the backend or create another form for registered users.
another option i've read is to change after submitting the form using gform_post_submission hook.
i'm very junior in gravity and i'll appreciate a very "simple" and an example so than i can either
(a) show the Name (field Name) given in my template or
(b)modify the default author and change it to "the_name_given_author" so that my template shows the updated author modified
