More HTML Validation and User Notification suggestions

  1. HTML Validation:
    You guys did a great job on fixing like 99% of the HTML validation, but one thing remains a problem for us anal retentive folks. When you have a field that isn't required the HTML is still outputting

    <span class='gfield_required'></span>

    which it's invalid to have an empty element. This should be an easy fix line 612 of form_display.php and just have $field_content either display the span or not display the span based on if $field['isRequired'].

    My next suggest is about the User Notification. There are some instances where the "Notification to User" might need to support the ability to populate it w/ an "email field" is there a way that can be added? Or is there a reason that the option was not implemented in the that specific portion of the notifications.

    Thanks,
    Lucas

  2. Hey Lucas, we will look into the validation issue you pointed out. We should be able to take care of this in the next release.

    I'm a little confused on your note about user notifications. Can you clarify? An example might better help me understand what type of functionality you are looking for.

  3. Yea sure thing ... here's an image of what I was trying to express:

    The "Notification to Administrator" allows you to select an email from a pre-populated "email" field, but the "Notification to User" does not. A case where this is needed is would be if you're using GForms to do a "Tell a Friend" feature, where the email should go to the friend but show that it's coming from you. Just from a usability standpoint someone is more likely to open an email coming from friend@mypersonaladdress.com instead of a generic email like noreply@foo.com

  4. I'd love to see the possibility to select a 'from address' in the "notification to user" section for exactly the same reason, any news on this one?

  5. It hasn't been discussed internally yet. But we will look into it. It's a good idea.

  6. I second this request. I would love to have a tell a friend form through gravity. I use this feature of cforms pretty often. I want to drop cforms altogether to move all my sites to gravity, but this is still a hold up.

    Thanks!
