Gravity Wiz Weekly #113

Two major releases and a spell to cure worry through hardwork.

gravity wiz weekly

Greetings, wizards!

It’s been nearly a full moon since we last spoke. All the while, we’ve been wearilessly wizarding away on a great host of incredible updates for you. Read on, my friends. You won’t be disappointed. πŸ§™πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

Populate Anything 1.0 Released

Populate Anything 1.0 is out in the wild. It’s a huge milestone for this data population powerhouse. This release represents years of hard work and dedication from a team of wizards I couldn’t be happier to call my own. Don’t miss out on all the ways this Swiss Army plugin will revolutionize how you work with Gravity Forms.

Limit Submissions 1.0 Released

Populate Anything may have stolen the show this week, but you definitely don’t want to miss out on Limit Submissions. Limit the number of entries that can be submitted by a variety of factors (user, role, IP, URL, field value) and for nearly any period of time.

How is this useful to you?

  • Creating a training quiz to help students study for their SATs?
    Limit non-members to a single submission but give your members unlimited access.
  • Having the same applicant applying for your jobs multiple times?
    Limit them by name and email to one application per month.
  • Getting slammed with spam from the same IP?
    Throttle submission to one per minute.

Other Perky Highlights

The Gravity Perks suite received a number of useful additions this week.

  • Media Library has been updated to resolve a conflict with File Upload Pro. Use these two perks together to crop the perfect image and then automatically import it to the WordPress Media Library.
  • File Upload Pro has two new filters. gpfup_strip_image_metadata to choose whether or not to preserve image metadata (EXIF) and gpfup_jpeg_quality to change the JPEG quality that’s used when cropping and auto-cropping images. These are useful when you are collecting assets to print.
  • We made a number of compatibility improvements with Gravity Forms 2.5 across the suite.

Read on for the full list of changes below.

Alright, wizards. Until next week. ⚑️


Gravity Forms All Fields Template β€” Take complete control of the Gravity Forms {all_fields} merge tag output with this lightweight plugin. This week, we fixed an issue where “Order Summary” label would still appear when using the nopricingfields modifier.

Gravity Forms Update Posts β€” Populate and update WordPress posts with Gravity Forms’ entries. This week, we added support for updating the post status and setting a featured image. The latter addition requires our Media Library perk and pairs will with File Upload Pro.

Field Groups for GP Limit Choices β€” Looking for simple appointment bookings? Our Field Groups snippet works with Limit Choices to join multiple fields together to create unique choice selections that can only be selected a limited number of times. Join a Date field and a Drop Down field with a list of time slots and you’ve got a simple but flexible appointment booking system. We review this solution in-depth in our How to Build a Curbside Pickup Form.
