  5. Gravity Forms v1.7.7 Released

    Gravity Forms v1.7.7 is now available via automatic update and the downloads page. While vX.X.X releases going forward will only contain updates, bug fixes, refinements and NO new features, v1.7.7 does include some new features. Only vX.X releases will contain new features going forward. On that note, i'm also please to announce that development on Gravity Forms v1.8 has begun!

    One of the new features in v1.7.7 is an easter egg! We aren't telling you what it is... yet. The first person to comment on this release announcement and correctly guess what the feature is, will win a free Gravity Forms renewal. Maybe we'll even throw in a free upgrade if you don't already have a Business or Developer License! If nobody guesses correctly, we'll post another blog post at the beginning of next week revealing the new feature and it's details. Here's a hint... it has to do with Entries.

    The other new feature is support for the Touch Punch script which makes jQuery UI touch enabled. Touch Punch is a core WordPress script so we are able to implement this without introducing new scripts within Gravity Forms. The primary benefit of this feature is it makes any functionality that uses jQuery UI's draggable, droppable or sortable touch enabled and will work on touch enabled mobile devices, tablets and touch screens.

  8. Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On v1.0 Beta 1 Released

    Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On

    The Gravity Forms PayPal Payments Pro Add-On v1.0 Beta 1 is now available.

    Not to be confused with the legacy PayPal Pro, this new Add-On allows you to accept payments via PayPal's newer PayPal Payments Pro payment processing service.

    As new payment processing startups such a Stripe and WePay move in on PayPal's turf it has forced them to re-organize their product offerings which has caused fragmentation. What was previously known as PayPal Pro is not the same thing that is currently being marketed by PayPal as PayPal Payments Pro.

    If you signed up for PayPal's "Pro" offering within the last year you likely have a newer PayPal Payments Pro account utilizing the Payflow API that this Add-On is designed to integrate with.

  10. Important Gravity Forms Standard Support Change Announcement

    We are announcing a major change to how we handle standard support. It will no longer be handled via a forum system. We will now be handling standard support requests via the same ticketing system we utilize for Contact Us and Priority Support requests.

    Due to Gravity Forms explosive user growth over the last 4 years, the volume of support requests has also risen. This has made managing standard support via a forum environment simply to inefficient and unmanageable for our support team to provide the level of support we'd like to provide our users. Discussion Forums are simply not designed for managing and facilitating support. They are designed for discussion.
