Multi Page form chellange

    Hi,

    I bought Gravity Forms some days ago and I'm trying to achieve effect I thought is built-in. Sadly, it is not built-in and I need some help.

    I have a multi page course. I need to have single steps of multi-page form on SOME of those pages, but when I go to the next page of the course after completing some of the steps of the form, the form is being displayed from the begining. So it goes like this:

    [1st page of the course]
    [content]
    [content]
    [GravityForm: Step ONE of 20]
    [content]
    [content]
    [Next Page ->]

    [2nd page of the course]
    [content]
    [content]
    [GravityForm: Step ONE of 20]
    [content]
    [content]
    [Next Page ->]

    What I want to achieve is that when user fills in the step ONE in the form on the 1st page of the course and then goes to the 2nd page of the course the form is displaying him step TWO, not step ONE as it is now. So it would be like:

    [1st page]
    [content]
    [content]
    [GravityForm: Step ONE of 20]
    [content]
    [content]
    [Next Page ->]

    [2nd page]
    [content]
    [content]
    [GravityForm: Step TWO of 20]
    [content]
    [content]
    [Next Page ->]
    [etc.]

    I used Data Persistence Add-On but it's not working - when I fill in form on the 1st page nad go to the 2nd page, the form is displayed from the begining, not from where I finished on 1st page. How can I achieve desired effect and make the form display continuous steps?

    Gravity Forms was not set-up to have the form separated like this. It was set-up for:

    [1st page of the course]
    [content]
    [content]
    [GravityForm: Step ONE of 20]
    [GravityForm: Step TWO of 20]
    [GravityForm: Step THREE of 20]
    [GravityForm: Step FOUR of 20]
    [GravityForm: Step .... of 20]
    [SUBMIT FORM]
    [content]
    [content]
    [Next Page ->]

    Indeed, you are right. Is there any way to set it up as I described, because I obviously don't know how to do it...? And I tried multiple things already.

    There isn't any way that I know of as even if you could get it set-up, each submission (page) would be a different entry in Gravity Forms.

    Didn't see the 2nd answer. Your answer explains it all, too bad it doesn't solve my problem.

    Again, Gravity Forms doesn't have any way to do this. The form is really all on one page, hidden by various means. So the form isn't actually broken up into pages that you can flip through and have different content surrounding it.
