Two Small Questions

  1. Hey! I just bought GF and love it. I've got two things being funky with me, though.

    One, the "hidden" input field automatically has a border around it thanks to my CSS. I know I can put conditional styling on it via HTML and placing the actual code in the post, but I want my client to be able to easily use the shortcode in the future. How can I remove the border, and/or can I move the "hidden" field around in the code to make it less evident?

    Also, for whatever reason, everything functions excellently except the Confirmation: I place text in the field and click "Update Form", however, it does not save. Any ideas?

    Thanks so much!

  2. Oops, and also, images are not uploading for me. When it does work, what's the post meta tag used to call it?

  3. Hello Cliff, do you have a form accessible somewhere where I can see the CSS issue you are having? I'm curious because Gravity Forms doesn't currently have a hidden form field type so i'm not 100% sure what you are referring to. But if you give me a URL where I can see the form in question, with the CSS issue, I can take a look at it. If it's a CSS issue it can easily be resolved by adding some custom CSS.

    As for the confirmation, what are you placing in the confirmation text area? Just text, or text and html and form field variable shortcodes? More details will be helpful. I may actually need to get access to your WordPress site via an admin login to see the issue happen in order to debug it further. You can send this to us via email at

    With the image issue, are you referring to the File Upload field or the Post Image field?

    Images for the Post Image field are uploaded to the media library and post gallery for the post created. You need to edit the post and then insert the image just like you would any other image when creating a post. Or you can use the gallery tag to output the images for that post.

    If images are not being created it could be due to file permissions. Gravity Forms needs to create an upload folder in the wp-content/uploads. If it can't write to this folder for some reason, or create the necessary subfolders the upload won't happen.

  4. I sent an email to the address you listed.

    I'm still having trouble getting it to upload into either image field when submitting the form- for instance, when I preview the post or the entry, the upload field shows up, but with no image in it.

    I can give you further permission if you'd like to see what's happening with it. Thanks!
