Gravity Forms Directory
directory does not display all columns (7 posts)

    I have the Directory add on with three forms configured, and using the table display. One form has 8 columns but only 5 display, another form has 6 columns, only 5 display and the third form has 5 columns and all 5 display.

    We cannot find anywhere in the admin to change the number of columns to display.

    I switched one of them to both the ordered and unordered list display and all fields did not show up this way either.

    How can we make it display all necessary columns?

    Thanks :)

    We found it --- not real obvious but it's there. In case anyone else needs this, it's in Entries and click the Edit button far right top and bottom.

    Hi everyone,
    First of all, this gravity forms directory is a terrific idea.

    But choosing our columns for front-end users like this is not the best way to do it.
    I mean : What if I need a page for a certain group of users authorized to see some content other users won't ?
    Or if I have different forms on my website and I want different columns to appear ?

    From my perspective, It would be far more efficient to handle it the same way we setup a form within a page, on a per page basis.

    Mouse Clicks: thank you.
    That Baud: agreed.

    Yes, the fields/columns displayed on a front-end Directory should be controlled separately from those on the backend admin Entries list. They are different views in different environments for different users -- we need to be able to control them differently. This seems like a pretty big flaw in the plugin.

    I actually find an interesting way to use GF with "Custom Post Type" and "More Fields".
    Creating a custom post type for each form I make and binding every field of it to a custom field or custom taxonomy allow me to control every answer as a post in a normal WP loop.
    So from there I am able to display and filter every answer.
