Automatically republish when changes are made - not working (5 posts)

    Unless I'm doing something wrong, "Automatically republish when changes are made" is not working for me.

    Any suggestions?

    What's the current status of this? I've thought of using this plugin but wanted to find out if it actually works reliably for those with it. What happened? Is there a URL whee it can be seen? Does the form work okay as long as you don't try to update it?

    I just login and click re-publish when I add new content - serves my needs.

    I actually decided to try just embedding the iframe code into the body of the page using the Text editor and it appears fine and seems to update automatically fairly quickly when I make changes to the form just on its own without an plugin. So, I'm very happy with that.

    Now what would be a huge blessing would be a plugin that would somehow enable Google Docs to send me the results of the completed intake form after it has been completed in a formatted manner rather than sending me a link as it does now to a spreadsheet format. I know that's another thing completely but I'm just going off on a tangent (maybe that's why my profile picture is of an insane crab-like creature rather than a smiling normal-looking guy).

    Hi,

    Sorry dlittle800 for not replying to your forum post. Did not see this thread!

    As for 4795209's comments, the IFRAME code should work fine if you're an administrator. However, if your users are not administrators, they cannot add elements like IFRAMEs due to security issues. That is what this shortcode plugin is for.

    As for your tangent, you could probably format the spreadsheet into a nice chart:

    Hope that helps!
