Let an user edit his own entries (23 posts)

    Is it possible that an user can edit or remove his own entries?

    For example:
    1. User needs to register @ site to post entries in the form (a form made by the admin!).
    2. Fills in that form.
    3. If he desides later to edit his own entries, is it possible?

    Thank you. If you know an alternative I would be please too.

    This sounds more along the lines of a plugin like Cimy User Extra Fields.

    If there is big support for this idea (in combination with User Registration addon, then I'll consider adding it to this plugin.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hello, i use a workaround that allow users to add/edit/delete their entries or add/edit a unique entry for user (like a profile)... and i use it to display forms(and directories) in the dashboard, so it looks like a Use Control Panel.
    The problem is that it requires a code hack (just one line in gravityforms/form_display.php) because gravityforms doesn't seem to support entry editing(execpt via admin that inhibits some functions like captcha, required fields check etc).
    At the moment i haven't found another way to do this.
    If you are interested to hack gravityforms code(1 line!), i will be glad to share my code.

    Can you post the hack? I would love to add this feature.
    This would be a great addition to gravity forms.

    The sooner the better ; )

    Am considering donating if such functionality would be there. Am currently in the process of quoting for a new site, looking for this kind of functionality.

    Maybe more people considering donations?

    I'll look into it, but here's a hint: donating first makes any plugin developer far more likely to help troubleshoot / develop a new feature.

    Hi Zack,

    I understand and agree, It's only fair to pay someone for his labour. But donating for something that I "might need" (depending on if I get the job) is at least in my situation not feasible.

    Just to understand, what kind of amount do you consider as "reasonable"? Personally I am just a small/hobby sitebuilder with limited resources, but I see at least 7 people here wanting such feature, so we might help each other out here.

    Regards

    I've donated $20 for plugins, one time $100. It's up to you, though.

    Very reasonable amounts I think.

    As soon as I know more about my project I'll let you know.

    Hope we can pul things off.

    Regards

    I'm also looking for the answer to this.

    @ Scott, Well you know what to do. Donate ;)

    @ all, I'll write down what I try to achieve, so at least that's clear.

    The idea is to create a site for an atlethics sports club. (around 500 members).
    On the site there will be a form (Grafity form) where people can request membership of the club.
    - Filling en sending the form should lead to:
    a. e-mail to members administration, with the form info + request for account approval.
    b. Automatic creation of the new account (not active until admin approves)(Membership plugin/WP functionality?)
    c. store all info into the DB (Gravity Forms)

    - The Account approval process, must give the ability to store extra (admin only) info the the users account (Gravity Forms)

    - After account approval, an e-mail is sent to the new member with their login details

    - The user should then be able to login to the site (preferably not the WP login, but maybe rerouted to other page?), where he/she can see/modify their own membership data (only the non-admin info of course).

    - The website will get an option to show (a subset of) all clubmembers, if possible segmented based on some categorie info (Grafity forms Directory add-on)

    - All data (or subsets thereof, can be exported to CSV for usage in other systems (Excel, Filemaker Pro, financial system)

    - Later on, there might be the idea to connect this system with other systems, but since all data resides in the DB, that should not be too hard (if you have the knowledge)

    And of course since the user will be a WP user, it allows for account usage for posting or connections with forum or other connected systems.

    I hope this clarifies what I am trying to achive.

    I just released Version 3.1 that includes editing of one's own entries.

    It requires users to be logged in when submitting an entry. If they are logged in, they can edit the listing.

    You need to update existing directory shortcode to include useredit=true

    I also added a donate link to the settings page to make it super-easy for everyone here to chip in! You can also click the link below:

    Donate to show your thanks for this feature

    Zack,

    Thanks mate, that's quick! I was hoping to see something like this within "some months" or so.

    I am not much in the next days but will try to test this next week.
    As said, if I get the job a donation will be sent.

    Regards

    BTW. Could I have your opinion on my previous post? Does it make sense?

    Just one question about Version 3.1: Does this require the user-registration add-on from Gravity Forms?

    @glcaff - no, it doesn't require that add-on.

    Editing entries including a front-end profile form is all possible out of the box with Formidable Pro, and at a fraction of the price of Gravity.

    Hello,
    sorry for my intrusion.
    Somebody contacted me to have my hack(that i wrote above) to let an user edit his entry(without using directory addon).
    For people who are interested, i posted a simple plugin here:
