Migrating Gravity Forms

  1. vixvii

    I migrated GF from my development server to my live server and all the forms migrated perfectly except the most important form - user registration. This form uses about 104 fields and in the process of creating this form, I think GF started losing track of IDs or something. The form works as it is now, but adding a new field at the bottom of the page doesn't work. The field gets added, but it doesn't display.

    I removed an unnecessary page break (in the editor) and everything after this page break seems to go into limbo now :-) Trying to look for the problem in the xml is going to be a nightmare and I think I might break things rather than fix them. The Meta Recovery tool didn't seem to help either. Any suggestions?

    My xml code is at

    Just a suggestion :
    It would be great to have a tool to export the form including it's actual form ID, so when it is imported on a new site it keeps it's current ID OR Maybe just a tool with which you can easily change form IDs?

    I think this might help with migrating forms?

  2. Is that XML file for the original form, or for the form after you removed the page break? If it's for the original form which page break did you delete?

    This is the form after the page break is deleted. I had a page break in after Student 10's details right at the end of the form.
