This is beta software. That means DO NOT INSTALL ON PRODUCTION SITES. Unless you really want to, but then don’t blame me when it breaks horribly.
Do you have a GIT/SVN version of the beta? Then we can help you with the release and fixing of bugs ;)
Do you think this will still be developed into a paid plugin? I'd be more than happy to pay for some of this functionality!
HI I just installed the beta hoping it would fix my issues. I have a form that is pulling a custom posttype into a dropdown field. This works great although when I view the entries for this form I see the id's for the dropdowns and not the labels. So I end up with an Id instead of a readable name in my entries. Any Ides on how I could resolve this?
Hi Bret - I am not actually sure this beta will ever be released. Partly due to my lack of time to keep updating the plugin on wordpress.org and also me wanting to turn this into a premium plugin with proper support, documentation etc
Another similar bug: when I select the parent drowpdown and select any child of it, and submit the form (now both fields are filled), when I submit the form with other empty required fields, the parent value gets remembered, but the child does not, and does not get populated anymore, even when click on parent.
I'm testing your plugin. And I found a bug - When you add a parent dropdown with a child dropdown linked to it, using custom post type taxonomy - if you forget to select the parent, and send the form, and the fields are required, you won't be able to have the child behavior populating when click parent, anymore.Please tell me if you have a fix for that. Thanks!
Once a post is created (by using the Gravity Form and this plugin), how would the user edit their post? Would it be through the standard WP post editor, or could they use the Gravity Form again?
@willmacmillan yes, more and more people want this plugin to be stable and want support on how to use it. I think this plugin will move under the FooPlugins brand and will be done properly
@themergency I'd pay for it, for sure, with what you say is added to v4. It's helping me now, but I don't like having to alter the code to manage how custom posts are sorted in select lists, etc. This plug-in, though, is the bridge between wp-types and gravity forms. You might consider selling it on CodeCanyon, as a new plug-in, rather than an upgrade to v3. Let 3 remains as your free version with limited support, but v4 for a price with support. I wouldn't pay as much as for Gravity Forms, but certainly something in the $15-20 range. Especially after having worked with CPT v3. Just my two cents.
@JeffSchodde you can give this plugin a try : http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-update-post/
@themergency awesome - definitely think the value is there. Any idea on when you're looking to release? Obviously the worst question ever because then people will start trying to hold you to that timeline! :P
@Bret Williams Exactly what I was thinking - but I am going to sell it on fooplugins not CodeCanyon
So you want the ability to sort certain custom post types differently in certain forms. So include a sort field and direction option?
Post all your feature requests here and I will try add them into V4
@themergency @JeffSchodde That's the one I use, it works really well and means users don't have to go to the admin area to edit their form.
Also a good tip, is to add the following to your notification email, and it will give the user the full URL to edit their form:
@willmacmillan yes that is the worst question - so I will not answer it at this time :P
I am busy finishing up another plugin at the moment, so that is taking up all my time. So when that is done, I will start on the GF+CPT plugin
@themergency Yes. When showing custom post types in a select field, it would be nice to sort by title, menu order, etc., and asc or desc.
@themergency no worries! Thanks for the follow up & looking forward to it when it comes out! Have a good one
