Support » Plugin: Gravity Forms: Post Updates » Unwanted Post Status change on update

  • I use GF + Gravity Forms Post Updates to publish and update posts in the frontend in conjunction with Better Notifications for WordPress to send notifications to the admin and user when a post is published or updated.

    This is the ideal workflow:

    1. The User (logged in) submits a GF form which is published as a post
    2. A “new post published” notification is sent to the admin and to the user
    3. The admin makes an edit to the post using Gravity Forms: Post Updates
    4. A notification is sent to the user that their post has been updated

    The problem is that when a post is updated using Gravity Forms: Post Updates, the post_status is first changed from <i>publish</i> to draft and then from <i>draft</i> to <i>publish</i>. The draft->publish change triggers the “new post” notification to be sent instead of the “post updated” notification.

    Is there a way to prevent the post_status change when a post is updated with Gravity Forms: Post Updates?

    This question might be related: Retain Published status on update?

    Thanks!

    The problem ended up being not with this plugin or the Better Notifications for WordPress plugin, but with the way Gravity Forms handles the post creation/update.

    If anyone else runs into this problem, I’ve added some more details in this thread.
