  1. Gravity Forms v1.7 Developer Notes

    Gravity Forms v1.7 introduces powerful new changes to the Form Settings, Notifications and Confirmations.

    All these fantastic changes come with some possible challenges to developers that have implemented hooks to extend or customize Gravity Forms default behavior related to these features. We have put a lot of thought into making this version as backwards compatible as possible, but with all the different hooks involved we cannot guarantee that you will not need to make some adjustments to your code.

  2. Gravity Forms v1.7 Beta 1 Released

    Gravity Forms v1.7 Beta 1 is now available for download. We are extremely excited about this release as it introduces extensive changes to the Gravity Forms admin tools and sets up limitless possibilities for the future.

    We have completely re-written the Form Settings functionality so that it has its own dedicated area and is not contained within the Form Editor. This change has given us the flexibility to expand and enhance not only Form Settings capabilities, but also introduce significant enhancements to the Confirmation and Notifications.

    Please Note: This is a beta release and as such you should use at your own risk. We are still actively working on UI enhancements and refinements for the final public release. Developers should read the note at the bottom of this post regarding impact to existing customizations that Gravity Forms v1.7 may introduce.

  10. Gravity Forms MailChimp Add-On v1.9 Released

    Gravity Forms MailChimp Add-On v1.9 is now available via automatic update. This release updates MailChimp group handling and also makes improvements with how new subscribers are handled.

    The MailChimp API currently overwrites current groups for a subscriber based on what is passed to the API. Rather than append the groups, it overwrites them. We have updated the MailChimp Add-On so that it first gets the existing groups for that user and then appends their selections so existing group selections will still be intact. We have also added a new hook, gform_mailchimp_keep_existing_groups, to allow developers to change this behavior back to the overwrite behavior if they would like to do so.

    We have also updated how new subscribers are added to a list if they already exist as an unsubscribed user or their subscription is pending and they did not respond to the MailChimp confirmation email. When this occurs, users will now be added as if they were a new subscriber. Previously subscribers were not added if they were unsubscribed or pending due to default MailChimp API behavior.
