method="post" action=(call a perl script please)?

    Greetings Gravity Peoples!

    So here's my question: Is it possible to call a different action (specifically Perl CGI) for the forms without changing the core files? I'm due for developer renewal, but I need to know how/if GF can do this first and still achieve validation. I've located some topics like this in the forum; but, alas, I have been denied access to this helpful, possibly life-saving information due to my product's unfortunate recent expiration.

    I thought about renewing a personal license just so I can read the few forum posts about Perl and actions, but it's a gamble. For all I know, the blocked responses could read 'Sorry that is unpossible without some super cereal crazay modificationness.'

    I am able to easily integrate other standard web forms with my current Perl script beautifully, but I'm not sure where to start with Gravity. I've searched the documentation thoroughly for hooks, API, etc., but the examples don't really fit or explain how to do this neatly.

    I'm a little gun-shy because the last time I sought support on how to revert to null in conditional logic (with a valid license), I was dismissed with 'that'll take crazay modificationness.' I was able to create a simple solution myself, being a serious n00b, using jQuery. After posting my solution to the forums, my feature was later implemented in the next release.

    Anyjaways, I'm rambling. I just feel like I bought, read and even co-authored an awesome book, but the last page is being held hostage until I fork over some more dough. And I'm not even sure if the ending will be worth it, lol ;)

    Maybe you can at least give me a clue as how it ends?

    I figured it out. I'll let you know if I need anything else :)

  3. For anyone else reading, you could use the gform_form_tag filter to change the form's action altogether http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_form_tag

    Or, you can always use the gform_after_submission hook to send data to any location you like after it's collected by Gravity Forms. http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_after_submission

  4. For users looking for an easy way to modify the form tag see the Gravity Forms Tag Editor plugin. It is a simple plugin that makes modifying Gravity Forms tags a breeze. Change any attribute of the form tag with just a few lines of code.
