Gravity forms support?

Recommended Posts

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 http://www.pagelines.com/pagelines-framework-2-3-release/. 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 http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/21930-23-release-notes/ 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.

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.

      Hi guys,
      What is the level of compatibility and integration of PageLines DMS 2 with the Gravity Forms WordPress plugin? Also any hints on styling would be greatly welcomed.

      Hi I need to add a simple optin form on the landing page on the right of the slider. I want to have a background graphic. I was able to add the image background to the column, but adding the short code in the text box nested in the column did not work for Firefox, but seems to work in Chrome http://buff.ly/1ktuPpP
       
      How would I add a small opt in form to the right of my slider. I do have Gravity forms but wondering how to add the short code to the landing page of DMS. thanks

      Hey guys, I've got this one page where I've placed a simple Gravity form — and the footer has this strange gap that doesn't show on the page.
       
      It's an iframe. With no content. Which I have no clue how it got there.
       
      HOWEVER... when I removed the form from the page, the gap (and the iframe) disappeared.
       
      Is there anything in DMS that would cause this? I'll check with the folks at GravityForms to see if they have any clue.

      Note that the rest of the pages are fine.

      I have several Gravity Forms forms on our site.  The ones that use conditional logic do not appear in Chrome if I am logged in as the admin.  They do appear in Firefox when logged in and when not logged.  This makes me wonder if there is something in the Chrome-based DMS editor that is causing the problem.  Has anyone else experienced this?

      Hi guys
       
      I recently purchased the GravityForms plugin and the advanced Signature add-on. Bought it exclusively because a client needs signatures on a form.
       
      Well I have a form on a test page in a simple TextBox in the template section. The form displays and works BUT NOT the Signature field!  Am communicating w/their support and they see errors on the page:
      There is a JavaScript error: Uncaught ReferenceError: SuperSignature is not defined For some reason the script is in the footer when it should be up in the header, the stylesheets are also down in the footer and they should also be in the header. Does your theme's header.php file have <?php wp_head(); ?> also how are you including the form on that page, are you using the shortcode or the function call. If you are using the function call then you also need to use the gravity_form_enqueue_scripts function to correctly include the stylesheets and scripts: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gravity_form_enqueue_scripts Here's a simplified test page:
      http://westcoastfacemasks.com/BLOG/gravity-form-test-wsignature-field/

      It has this in the Pagelines Textbox section and nothing else:
       
      [gravityform id=2 title=false description=false ajax=true] Thanks for taking a look
