Need Gravity Forms to display form data on WordPress Page

  1. I want certain users to be able to log in, fill in some predetermined fields, click Submit, and have the data they entered then display on a WordPress Page (not post). Is this possible with Gravity Forms?

    Second question - if the above answer is yes, is it also possible to include a PayPal payment button for a situation where they need to pay before their data will display?

  2. So you want to create a Page instead of a Post? This is possible, but not as a built in feature. You would have to write custom code and use available Gravity Forms API hooks to tell Gravity Forms to save as a page and not a post. How proficient are you with PHP and WordPress development?

    If you wanted them to pay in order to create the post you could use the Gravity Forms PayPal Add-On. However that requires a Developers License to access.

  3. Yes, but the Page would already exist, and each time they update the information (these would be snowmobile trail condition reports) it would just replace what had been there. Does that change anything?

    Sorry to cut in here - I'm also curious as to how to create a form that will create a page and not a post. If I have 5 custom fields, could I build a form to post to those 5 custom fields? Then the data in those custom fields be displayed in newly created page?

    Though if it's not out of the box stuff [ this would be a great feature - even better if this was WP-ADMIN based too ] then is it hard to implement ? I'm kinda OK at PHP and not too bad with WP.

    Thanks Mark

  5. Here is a post that shows how to create a page, not a post, from a form using custom code:

  6. Thanks for the further information. I have to ask again, though, about the situation where the Page already exists and they are just replacing the info each time they do an update. I know you can't provide support for these tweaks or give us detailed instructions how to do it, but I just need to know if it is possible. Thanks!

    Oh, and here's what I'm going for - the page would look sort of like this once submitted: The user would update this info on a regular basis.

  7. Why don't you just create submissions as Posts in their own, unique category, then create a page template that grabs only the latest of these posts (or whatever). That way your URL will be to the Page but the Page will contain a Post... you could alternately use a custom category template and include that page (I am assuming it has some "intro" text or something static on it) and limit the output to a single post with a custom query in the category template.

  8. Hmm, I thought I replied to this earlier, guess not. Thanks for the suggestion - that very well may work! I'm pursuing another possibility at the moment, but if it doesn't come through, I'll try your suggestion. Thanks again :)
