Newbie Question

  1. I wonder if this is possible for Gravity form.. This is the set up we want..

    1. When a user visited a page with gform, they will see list of manufacturers in dropdown list.

    2. After they click submit or next button, they will be directed to a page with different models depending on the manufacturer they choose.

    3. After they choose model and click submit, they will then be directed to a page which displays the Total bill, they will need to enter their name, address, email and then at the bottom will be the paypal checkout process...

    Is this possible with Gravity forms?

  2. I don't see why not. You can use conditional logic to show/hide fields.

    You would create a multi-page form using the Page Break field. On page 1 would be the drop down to select the manufacturer. Then you would create a page for each manufacturer, edit the Page Break and use conditional logic to show/hide that Page based on the manufacturer field selection.

    You can use Pricing Fields to capture pricing information and display a Total on the final page and then use the PayPal Add-On to integrate with PayPal.

  4. I can't tell just by looking at the form. I would need to have access to the WordPress admin to look at the form and field settings as well as preview the form in the admin. If you can send me an admin login to and include a link to this forum post so I know what it is in reference to we can take a look.

  5. The reason why the Total is not calculating is you aren't using Product Fields, you are only using Option Fields. Option Fields do not update the total and cannot be used by themselves. Option Fields update the price of a Product, which updates the Total. Options can't exist without a Product as they are designed to be Options for a Product.

    For example, if you were selling a T-Shirt the T-Shirt would be a Product Field and the Size and Color would be implemented using Option Fields. Size and Color don't exist by themselves. They need the T-Shirt, the Product.

    So you need to use the Product Field for Products and the Option Field for any options.

    If you prefer to use Options you don't necessarily have to use Product Fields for everything. However, you need at least one Product Field on your form. Option Fields associate themselves with a Product Field. If you only have one Product Field on your form then any Option Fields automatically associate themselves with that Product Field. If you have multiple Product Fields on your form then you select which Product the Option is associated with as one of the options when editing the Option Field.

    So the Product Field is what should be used as the primary pricing field. Options impact the price of a Product and the Quantity field impacts the Quantity of the Product and any of it's selected Options. The Total of any Product Fields and their associated Option Fields are then displayed using the Total Field.
