Support » Plugin: WP Maintenance Mode » Can’t use Gravity Forms with WP Maintenance Mode

  • Resolved Dademaru



    I’m trying to display a basic Gravity Forms form on the Maintenance page, but it doesn’t work.

    If I place GF shortcode inside the WPMM content box I get this error message:
    “Oops! We could not locate your form.”
    Maybe because WPMM plugin isn’t using wp_head(), so GF scripts aren’t loaded.
    So I’ve tried embedding the form via function call, manually adding GF scripts and the form is correctly displayed.
    But the form can’t be submitted.
    In browser console I’m getting a GET 503 error and, after submitting the form, a POST 503 error (Service Unavailable).

    Unfortunately I don’t get any log with DEBUG enabled.

    I’ve already contacted GF support and they replied I should contact WPMM support concerning this issue.

    Hello @xendo,

    Sorry to hear that, but Gravity Forms is not supported by default (and, to be honest, I don’t have any plans to integrate it).
    You should try to add the form action URL (just the request_uri) to the “Exclude” section (plugin’s settings > “General” tab). Hope this helps!


    Hi George,

    sorry but it doesn’t work:
    the form action URL is the page URL, in this case the home URL, which is ‘protected’ by WPMM and gives a 503 error for non admin / not logged in users.
    If I add the home URL to the “Exclude list”, the maintenance mode plugin is useless…
    Anyway I try to figure out another solution.

    Hello @xendo,

    I thought that the form action url is different, that’s why I’ve recommended to add the url (request_uri) to the “Exclude” list. 🙂

    It’s not possible to exclude the homepage, because if it was possible … then the maintenance page would not be displayed. Maybe you can make the gravity form to use a wordpress ajax action and this way should work.

    Anyway, good luck finding a solution that suits your needs!
