Greetings, wizards! 

For those of us with school-aged children, you’re likely enjoying some time off this month for Spring Break. My girls had theirs this week. 😄

For everyone else, GET BACK TO WORK! 

I tease, I tease! In fact, stop working right now and read this newsletter because there’s a good chance you’ll find something useful that actually reduces your workload.

Ready to find out? 😃 

Entry Blocks + oEmbeds

Entry Blocks makes displaying your entry data on the frontend sooo simple. Just add a “Gravity Forms Entries” block to your page, select the style (table vs loop), filter which entries should be included, and configure which entry data should be displayed. 2ez.

This week, we added support for handling oEmbeds in the “View Entry” view. Here’s an example of what that looks like with YouTube URLs.

Gravity Forms Gets Real (Estate)

I have no idea what’s going on with the real estate market but I do have some awesome ideas on how you can put Gravity Forms + Gravity Perks to work for your real estate business. Check out our deep-dive article where we’ll teach you how to create…

The best part? The knowledge here is useful regardless of your industry.

Wizarding Workshop VI: Recap

We hosted our sixth wizarding workshop last week and, per usual, it was a blast! This was my personal favorite so far as I got to show off so many tips and tricks across a variety of perks. 

If you missed it, don’t fret – we’ve got the full recording ready for you here!

PS – Don’t forget that you can follow along with our workshop doc here.

Snippet Update | Double Confirmation Fields

Some fields in Gravity Forms, like Password and Email fields, have double confirmation built-in. Ya know, where you have to enter the same value twice to confirm that you entered the correct value.

But there are a lot of other scenarios where you might want the assurance of double confirmation too. That’s why, thousands of years ago (feels like it anyways), we wrote a snippet that does just that – double confirmation by linking any two (or more) fields.

This week, we added support for ignoring fields hidden via conditional logic so you can conditionally include them as part of your double confirmation configuration.

Gettin’ Fancy | Styling Gravity Forms Page Steps

When a Pro customer asks if something is possible and we aren’t sure if it is, it triggers an insatiable curiosity that simply must be scratched. That’s what happened here. And it turns out, it is possible to style Gravity Forms page steps so they span the full width of the form and have fancy lines between them. 😂

New Snippet | Page Numbers to Letters

​​Speaking of insatiable curiosities… did you know it’s surprisingly simple to tweak your Gravity Forms page numbers (e.g. 1, 2, 3) into letters (e.g. A, B, C)?

Another Pro customer inspired us to figure this one out and the resulting snippet is now available for free in our Snippet Library. 🙂
