  • Can I use this plugin to execute WordPress (and 3rd Party Plugin) actions and filters using php?

    For example, executing a php snippet to process data when a gravity form is posted. Actions and filters are usually put in the functions.php file. I can create a php code block with the same code I would put in functions.php but it doesn’t get executed.

    Example: The following code does not get executed when I add it as a php block in your plugin.

    add_action( ‘gform_pre_submission_2’, ‘pre_submission_handler’ );
    function pre_submission_handler( $form ) {
    //Set Display Date
    $event_date = rgpost( ‘input_8’ );
    echo $event_date;
    $display_date = DateTime::createFromFormat(‘m/d/Y’,$event_date)->format(‘F j, Y’);
    echo $display_date;
    $_POST[‘input_9’] = $display_date;

    Hi there,

    Thanks for your support question and sorry for the delay in getting back to you. By any chance, did you manage to solve it?

    Unless you use this snippet as a CJT Code File, which can be used to wrap your code automatically inside PHP tags, you will need to add them manually within the Code Block.


    I added the php tags to the Code Block but the code never gets run. I have the same problem trying to execute any WordPress hooks and filters in a Code Block.

    For example, I want to run the following:
    //* Add both layout and SEO settings to custom post type
    add_post_type_support( ‘article’, ‘genesis-layouts’ );
    add_post_type_support( ‘article’, ‘genesis-seo’ );
