A problem I have found in the past is being able to code my own web form just the way I want it, whilst still allowing the powerful Gravity Forms plugin to do all the hard work behind the scenes. So after building a smooth jQuery based web form, I thought I’d try and make Gravity Forms process it to see how hard it could be. Here’s how I did it…
- Using Gravity Forms, I created a copy of my custom form by creating a plain form that has the same fields.
- Next, I changed all of the ‘name’ values on my inputs to match the ones Gravity Forms generates. (Preview the form to find out what these are)
- Then I added these three lines of code into the PHP file that processes my form:
$form_id = 1; require_once(GFCommon::get_base_path() . "/form_display.php"); GFFormDisplay::process_form($form_id);
