Two Step Form With Lightbox?

  1. jmspalding

    I'm considering purchasing GravityForms, but a crucial functionality I would need would be the ability to pass data from the first page of a form to fancybox, or some lightbox alternative. Would it be possible to trigger the lightbox from the first page submitting, and would support be able to assist me with that?

  3. I too am researching ways to accomplish a member I've seen at least one tutorial on how to integrate FancyBox with GravityForms, so I'd say it is possible based on the documentation I've read in my research.

  4. You can use your form in a variety of lightbox/modal window scripts but the implementation on those vary quite a bit. We could help some with the customization, but if you need some heavy lifting to get it done you would probably want to enlist the help of a qualified developer.

    I received a question from a client who added the code in the link supplied by David and it did nothing when clicked. The form is there, if I remove the hidden class I see the form. But the link does nothing.
    I tried it on a test site and it did not work. I have a lot of other plugins on that site and a fancbox implementation included with the theme, so to make things clear I setup a totally fresh WordPress install 3.3.2, Latest gravity forms 1.5.2, Fancyboxify fancybox plugin 1.1. I added an image to a post and the fancybox was launched when I clicked that. I added the code for form in fancybox. Still nothing when clicked?
    I copied and pasted the code, yes my form id = 1 too.

    I see this link in my html source
    <a class="fancybox" href="#fancyboxID-1">Click here to enter your details</a>

    on my image that does launch a fancybox I see
    <a class="fancybox" rel="fancybox-10" href="http://localhost/vanilla/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/300x300-blue1.jpg">

    does the fancyboxID-1 need to change?

  8. First off, that version of Gravity Forms, isnt the latest version. We are on v1. and you can download that version here:

    Second, do you have a link to these forms you are referencing?
