Previously working gravity form not showing up after 3.5 update

  1. A couple of gravity forms that were previously working will no longer show on the page they are inserted. The code has not been changed. I have disabled all other plugins and they still will not show up.

    Chrome shows an error with Gravity forms

    Uncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'first' conditional_logic.js:219

  2. Right, I see the JavaScript error:

    Timestamp: 1/17/2013 11:34:06 AM
    Error: TypeError: jQuery(...).children(...).first is not a function
    Source File:
    Line: 219

    You are including and extremely old jQuery 1.3.2:

    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

    rather than letting WordPress do its job and enqueue the proper 1.8.3 version which is required. Please remove this call to jQuery (it's being added by your theme) and let WordPress enqueue jQuery 1.8.3 and then see if you form displays properly.

  3. We're having this problem with a lot of our websites. Do you suppose some older themes are calling that old jQuery, and we need to replace that on every website?

    Check the header and footer of your sites for JavaScript calls and use Google Chrome or Firefox to inspect the pages and see if there are JS errors. It is fairly likely that the error would be similar on other sites.

  5. Hi, I have tried to find the code mentioned above on my site, but am unable to find it. Am I able to downgrade to the previous version of Gravity forms as my site is at present inoperable for my users due to this issue?
    Many thanks
