Static Text in the form

  1. Ok, How do I add static text to the form. Sentence or paragraph as needed before or after the form fields.
    Thanks,
    Terry

    You can use the HTML block field to add more text between fields if you would like.

    Okay, if you want to receive this text as well, then the HTML block field isn't going to work. We don't currently have a way to include static blocks of text in the notifications or responses. We have a field type called HTML block which is used for many purposes. You could have added it and then set its value to be the blocks of text you wanted to include. You wouldn't have needed any brackets to do so.

    If you want to include the values in your notifications and entries, you'll have to have the text as form labels or make a paragraph field with a default value and then make it a read only field using - http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/make-a-readonly-field#post-7034

    All my best!

  5. ok, then lets look a different route. will the fields be able to populate a separate form. I need to be able to generate a pdf certificate with a combination of the static fields and the form fields. If gravity cant do it is there a third party plug that could. Or if you know someone that can rewrite the php in order to do this. I still am looking for someone to help me change the code to auto populate a number that is next to a static text. I am having no luck in finding solutions.
    I hope you have ideas. I am running out of them.

    Here is an add-on that can help make PDF's http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-pdf-extended/

    You can even make a template that matches the form. So you could use the HTML fields in the form, and have a PDF template in the add-on that matches. Then the PDF would look the same as the form.
