Ready Class not working

  1. ralpheweotto

    I'm using <?php gravity_forms(); ?> to print the form, but when using that, the browser ignores ready classes.

  2. If you're using the php function call to embed the form then you'll need to manually enqueue the CSS and scripts for everything to work properly.

    The Ready Class styles are in the default forms stylesheet, but if it's not being loaded properly, then the style rules associated with the class names aren't going to be applied.

  3. Is there any reason why you aren't using the shortcode rather than using the function call?

    The ready classes aren't working because while the shortcode can automatically enqueue the necessary scripts and CSS a form needs to function, the function call cannot do this automatically because of how WordPress executes.

    So this means you have to use another function call placed in your themes functions.php file to enqueue the necessary scripts and CSS for a specific form. Documentation for this enqueue function call can be found here:

    It's also discussed on the documentation page that talks about how to display a form via the function call at the bottom of this page:

    The function call is more advanced and has to be implemented correctly because of how enqueue in WordPress works. Shortcodes are able to enqueue from the WordPress loop because of how WordPress executes code. Function calls, however, can't do this automatically because they may not be executing somewhere in the code execution life cycle that allows them to do so.

  4. Can you use your enqueue function in functions.php?
