    Oh please, make a stand-alone version of this plugin without the requirement of cf7 grid. I read your post about CF7 grid and understand your approach, but i think that some developpers like me, doesn’t want a form editor : we just looking for the great logic you implement with Polylang, just that!.
    thank you.

    Have you tried the smart grid plugin? If so what’s wrong with it?

    The only way to make the polylang independent would require including the wp-std cf7 admin pages into the plugin code….but that would still require including a new editor. Therefore i would end up having to maintain 2 sets of editor codes which doesn’t make sense.

    So i prefer to request u to adopt the Smart grid plugin and make it flexible enough for everyone…including developers

    I well understand your position, but for me it became to heavy just for that… + a bug with the CF7 conditionnal fields plugin. I will open an appropriaite thread on the CF7 grid plugin support.

    thank you

    really? The only extra load is on the dashboard, which if you only have admins accessing the cf7 admin pages should not be of much consequence.

    On the front-end, the SG plugin actually detects if the forms being loaded was designed using the grid UI editor, in which case it loads extra css/js scripts to manage the richer layouts provided.

    However, it is my understanding that you are not using the UI builder, hence, the SG plugin will detect your forms as such and not load any extra css/js, thus making little difference to your setup.

    You right, i don’t use the grid editor and that true that the plugin inself it’s not heavy.

    By heavy i will mean taht this obligate me to maintain two plugin updated to do one thing.
    In a ideal world, i need functions to do only specific things and without depencies…but this not the real world, and certainly not the world of the plugins…otherwise i’ve to do my plugin.

    Despite my reproaches, thank you for your work, it help me well !

    Hi, v2.1 is now stand alone, albeit with limited functionality, your existing forms will run and work, but you cannot create/manage translations.

    Hi Aurovrata,
    Thanks for this update, i just discover it and i’m been really happy to see that,
    because Smart Grid cause me trouble.

    With Smart Grid activated, when i write an <input> tag ( which musn’t be a generated tag ) in the text editor and i save it, it remove my input tag

    So i desactivated Smart Grid, but i didn’t see any way to translate new forms….so sad…That why i’m here, on this thread.

    Do you have any solution for me ? thanks you very much

    that’s a bug. Please report any bugs on the smart-grid plugin I will get them fixed!

    no, the stand alonw funcitonaliy is only for people to upgrade their plugin without breaking their existing site. So create/manage new forms you still need the smart grid. However, once translated you can always switch off the smart grid.

    Question:

    The smart-grid allows you to switch off the UI grid editor completely, and only use the text editor. this is useful for legacy forms or if you just need very simple forms. Have you tried it? Does your <input> field also get stripped in this case?
