Introducing the Gravity Forms plugin

What is Gravity Forms?

 

Is a WordPress plugin that was originally used for contact forms, but in a more general sense, allows site owners to create forms to collect information. 

Can also be used for contact forms, WordPress post creation, calculators, hiring applications and more.

Gravity Forms, written in PHP, uses many of WordPress’ built-in functions to enhance its form builder. It also uses the MySQL database system similar to WordPress, but stores all forms and entries in its tables.

Create and publish your WordPress forms in just minutes. Quick and easy formatting. Select your fields, configure your options, and embed forms easily on your WordPress site using built-in tools.

Make it easy to use long forms by splitting them into several pages with the progress bar.

Configure your form to show or hide fields, sections, pages, or even the submit button based on the user’s choice.

With Gravity Forms, you can create almost any form, including user surveys, surveys, file upload forms, support requests, online orders, quizzes, and questionnaires. Thanks to the text editor field, even full-format WordPress post submissions are accepted by Gravity Forms.

Through its configuration settings, you gain a lot of control over how users interact with your forms and how they manage form inputs. These options include people who receive form input notifications, and in what format they can adjust the availability of forms based on the date, user role, or number of inputs received, and more.

You can also use features such as the national code in Gravity Form with the Persian Gravity Form plugin.

 

When do we use Gravity Form?

 

 

1. When you need to enter and exit the input

 

Gravity Forms writes database inputs and allows you to output them in CSV format. The CSV file can then be opened using a program such as Excel.

Gravity Forms does this if your client wants to be able to store responses to a form over a long period of time.

 

 

2. When you need a form with conditional logic

 

Ability to use conditional logic to control which form fields are displayed and where form inputs are sent.

 

 

3. When you want to customize the confirmations

With this plugin, sending notification emails to different recipients is very simple.

 

 

4. When the customer should submit a file

 

When you need a form that can easily upload files and you want to be able to control the file type. You can also add a link to the uploaded file for quick access to the email notification.
