Strattic releases support for Gravity Forms!

Strattic releases support for Gravity Forms!
Strattic releases support for Gravity Forms!

NOTE: We have kept this post up to date with continual additions to our GravityForms support.

 

Gravity Forms is one of the most popular and robust WordPress form plugins. Its extensive functionality addresses almost every need, and the user-friendly drag-and-drop interface actually makes creating forms fun!

That’s all fantastic, but in Strattic-land there was one problem: Gravity Forms doesn’t work on the static, headless sites that Strattic generates from WordPress websites. The reason for this is that the plugin depends on interaction with the WordPress database to process form submissions, and on Strattic static sites there are no WordPress databases. The front end for the forms looks perfect, but it’s not enough to have a pretty face.

So we did something about it.

Drumroll, please!

Strattic is excited to announce that we now support Gravity Forms! 🥳

Gravity Forms has a ton of features so we are starting out by supporting many of the most-used parts of the plugin (see below for full list of supported features), with plans to roll out support for more features over time.

If your site uses Gravity Forms, all you need to do is activate Strattic support for Gravity Forms and voila! Your forms will work on your static site!

How to use Gravity Forms on Strattic

(Prerequisite: installing and activating the Gravity Forms plugin on your WordPress website)

Strattic supports Gravity Forms out of the box! No need to enable any Strattic settings.

  1. If you don’t yet have any Gravity forms set up on your site, go ahead and create one now.
  2. For existing Gravity forms, click the “Update” button at the bottom of each form
  3. Click on the big red Strattic publish button then click ‘Full Publish’ to generate a static version of your WordPress site.
  4. Test your form by submitting it. Both WordPress and static environments are connected to our integration, so you can test on either. Whoever is configured to receive email confirmations in Gravity Forms will get an email notification with the form submission details. Tada!
