Hi,

What does Gravity forms support mean. I've installed 2.3 and I am using Gravity forms, but I do not see any major difference. Actually, there is a difference, it looks a little bit worse. It certainly doesn't look like the demo in

. Should this support work out of the box? Or should I customize it in some way?

Thanks!

Hi,

I see no issue with the styling at the moment on your contact page. How did it look before, can you provide a screenshot please.

Hi,

Yes now it looks fine again. It's more or less the same. So I was just wondering. What does Gravity Forms support mean?

If you read

you will see that it says

Consistency in forms has always been a small problem across frameworks. Every plugin has their own approach. Well in this release we’ve added a standard presentation for forms that can be customized by themers and should be universal across plugins.


The use of Gravity Forms within a page, post or sidebar always required extreme coding, styling, etc. Now, with 'support' that's much easier as many of the basic, common issues of styling and coding have been built in.

It does not mean we provide technical support for Gravity Forms, or that we provide Gravity Forms free of charge or a plugin for it.

What do you mean by extreme coding and styling? The Gravity Forms plugin already worked perfect with shortcodes. No coding and styling needed at all.
So it is still not clear to me how (and why) styling and coding is more easy in 2.3. Just do not wanna miss out on anything you guys are delivering to easily improve my site. How can I style my forms more easy with 2.3?

Didn't expect that :-)

Thanks!

Some people have had difficulty with Gravity Forms in past. If you didn't, you're one of the lucky ones. Hence the added support in our code. As long as it continues to work for you, there's really nothing to be concerned with, I suppose.

@jbrouwer
Sometimes there will be major conflicts with gravity forms and a WordPress theme that will effect the look and the functionality of the form. All it means is that there wont be any conflicts with Gravity Forms and PageLines out of the box. It doesn't seem like a big deal if you have never had issues with gf and PageLines but if you have, its really good news.
