Gravity Forms and Woothemes

  1. Hi, I have been using Gravity forms on my Woothemes Listings theme. I have created custom fields within the conent builder of woothemes. My Form is set up properly to create a listing using some of the data from the form to fill in the custom fields found under "Listings custom settings" panel. At first Gravity forms worked fine. I would link the custom field to an existing custom field and the data would be passed through just fine. Now when i add custom fields, the custom field names are not showing as options in the "Custom Field Name" dropdown list when the "Existing" radial option is selected. Is this a problem with the dropdown updating? Please could you let me know how to fix this problem.

  2. If the custom field names that WooThemes uses for the listings theme have an underscore in front of them they are hidden, and won't appear in the drop down. The solution is to select New and type in the custom field name manually.

  3. Hi Carl, thanks for the response. I dont think that this is the problem as some of my fields have appeard. Also the dropdown list of existing custom fields is still showing old custom fields which i have deleted, leading me to think that the list is not updating? . Do you happen to know how i would check to see if woothemes are adding an underscore to the start of the cusomt field name?

  4. The list comes from your post meta table. It queries the custom field names in your post meta table. That is the only place this data comes from. It queries all custom field names in your post meta table and returns them in the drop down. That is all it does. If a name doesn't appear it's either hidden or there is no value in your post meta table with that name. The solution if it's not in the drop down is to select New and just type in the custom field name.

    You would have to look at the WooThemes code and see how/where it's creating the custom field name to know what name/key it is using. Or talk to the WooThemes support to see if they can let you know how they create the names.
