Modal Popup Gravity Form does not Submit

  1. After implementing this tutorial:

    All gravity forms seem to be working fine - except for my (2) popup forms. The forms open in a popup window as intended, but nothing submits. It is not emailed, and also does not show in the backend log. I am not sure what is happening, any ideas?
    (click on 'text club' in the right sidebar for a popup form)

  2. I'm having the same issue. First I created a popup the old way, posted on this blog using "fancybox". When gravity forms added ajax, I moved the form inline. I actually added it to a post so that all the scripts were called for gravity forms. When I click submit on the popup form, the form seems to finish, but does not reload to show errors or "thanks for... "

  3. @dcowart - Sorry, I hadn't seen this post until now for some reason, but the "text club" page is returning a 404. I guess you must have removed it by now or something.

    I'm betting both of these are script conflicts. Do your forms work properly in the preview? If so, there's something in the modal script or your theme that's causing a conflict with the form script.

    If so, you might want to try using another modal window script and see how that works - there are several jQuery versions out there to choose from.

  4. I had a similar issue with a client running Joomla and modal pop-ups. If I can recall the fix (believe me it was really, really stupidly simple) I'll post it.

    In that client's case it wasn't sending data to paypal. Same concept though.

  5. I seriously can't recall the exact fix.

    I'm pretty sure it had something to do with paypal opening in a new window which, from within a current modal, tends to break it.

    For now - ensure all links to and within the modal load in the current page (not the parent, but self really)

    Lemme know if my memory served me correctly here.

  6. I'm using hybrid from Justin Tadlock. In case I am missing something. Fancybox worked before with gravity forms, as a popup. I could submit the form and get the confirmation message. With ajax, my thought was to "embed" the form like so

    <a class="fancybox" href="#email">Email us about this item</a>
    <div id="email" style="display: none;">[gravityform id=2 name=InquireAbout This Item description=false ajax=true]</div>

    This is on my local machine, and once I have it working, I would not use the inline style. Just debugging right now. Also, this is added to a post, so all the scripts are being called

  7. Anyone resolve this issue as I'm having similar issues. I'm using the latest GF version, developer edition. I've got LightBox Evolution wordpress plugin and have a multipage form (2 pages) subscription form within, looks nice...

    The form opens fine in the lightbox, the Next and Previous buttons work fine, but the Submit button does not get to Paypal, it tries but then the modal just sits blank...

    Trying to see where may put target="_self", think in paypal.php on input submit ? Form does work outside of modal. Understand GF does not support modal but feels so close, any advice greatly appreciated.
