    Hi..excellent plugin and I might end up buying Gravity just because of this.However I have a specific query,can you put some light on it?
    What I'm trying to achieve is in a custom post type submission form add a conditional check,like 'New Suggestion" and 'Old suggestion' and if 'Old suggestion' is selected then it will show a DROP DOWN with list of all parent posts(this very custom post) by the author(who is submitting the form).And selecting one will create a child post under the selected post after submission.
    Need not to mention the post type here is hierarchical.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi emagineit

    That is not possible at the moment but it is a very good idea to implement as a feature. I will definately add that one to my list :)

    Hi emagineit

    I am hoping to have a new version out by tommorrow. It is working perfectly with v1.5 of Gravity Forms. I just need to get it working well with v1.4.5

    I will see what I can do about the child page field - it shouldn't be too hard to do...

    Hi Brad or emagineit,

    I just found this thread again. Question I have is how do you go about creating this situation (as above):
    form will show a DROP DOWN with list of all parent posts(this very custom post) by the author(who is submitting the form).And selecting one will create a child post under the selected post after submission.

    The "by the author who is submitting the form" is the crucial bit! Thanks for any help with this...

    Hi landwire

    What I am going to do is build in a filter that you can hook into, rather than add this to the actual plugin, as everyone's needs are different. The filter will then allow you to add a check to see if the author of each post is the currently logged on person. I will make the changes and then let you know how to do this with an example

    An example would be great Brad! Thanks very much for that.

    Hey Brad,

    I can't find the option to set the parent of the page, see screenshot http://i.imm.io/diyQ.png
