    Greetings!

    I’ve been trying to create a lightbox type contact form window that would appear after pushing a button (“contact us”) by using Gravity Forms. There are several plug-ins that promise to do this, but it seems that all that I have tried are not compatible with this theme- graphics or position gets distorted. Is there an easy way to go about this?

    Sincerely,
    Sami

    Hi!

    Good tip and might work, but I need the versatility of Gravity Forms to create all the required fields in the right language.

    Sincerely,

    Basically what I am trying to achieve is two folded

    1. The contact form must be a button that opens to a separate container so it would not take much space from the page. So that it would be next to every product.

    2. Ideally the contact form would be product specific in a way that it would draw information from the product next to it. [query] … [/query]. So that we know what product the customer is interested in without him/her having to type the product name in.

    Sincerely,

    Sami

    Hi Sami,

    I don’t know that this plugin will suit your purposes but I use Gravity Forms with a plugin called http://www.myphpmaster.com/form-lightbox. I’ve used it on a bunch of other website without issue, but had to tweak the styling a bit for it to work with enfold…but just a bit.

    On the lightbox form settings page I have the lightbox set to fancybox, and margins and padding set to 20px.
    In custom css I have the border-width set to 15px.

    Good Luck,

    Tali

    Hi Tali!

    First of all, humble thanks for your advice!

    It seems to work on the first click, but after one closes the form and tries to reopen the same form, it does not work.

    Here I have two links below the balls that should open forms. As said, both work on the first click, but a secondary click on the same link gets all scrambled.

    Sincerely,

    Sami

    I tried it on a separate page and it has the same problem. I did not change the border width though? Do you think this is causing the problem, and if so, how is this exactly done? :)

    Thanks a million!

    First of all, thanks for your helpful advices. I greatly appreciate it.

    We have decided to go a slightly different route with how the form is presented on the site. I am only facing one small problem with that and should be easily solved… hopefully. This is more of an Gravity Forms “problem” I recon, but I’ll post it here anyway.

    For the text to show properly prefilled on the form I have had to input this line of code:

    [gravityform id=”1″ name=”Tarjouspyyntölomake” ajax=”true” field_values=’tuote_p= nimi: Honda CRV Esite n numero: 144 n koko: 210 x 260 mm n laajuus: 32 sivua ja kannet n paperi: sisäsivut: silk 170 g; kannet: gloss 250 g n värit: 4/4 cmyk n jälkikäsittely: stiftaus’]

    The field value is prefilled nicely and all the lines are done correctly. Looks like this on the sites GF form:

    nimi: Honda CRV Esite
    numero: 144
    koko: 210 x 260 mm
    laajuus: 32 sivua ja kannet
    paperi: sisäsivut: silk 170 g; kannet: gloss 250 g
    värit: 4/4 cmyk
    jälkikäsittely: stiftaus

    The problem is that it would be extremely tedious to do this to every product.

    If I do it like this (the much easier way):

    [gravityform id=”1″ name=”Tarjouspyyntölomake” ajax=”true” field_values=’tuote_p=
    nimi: Honda CRV Esite
    numero: 144
    koko: 210 x 260 mm
    laajuus: 32 sivua ja kannet
    paperi: sisäsivut: silk 170 g; kannet: gloss 250 g
    värit: 4/4 cmyk
    jälkikäsittely: stiftaus’]

    I end up with the result of this one the page form (the br / is within a container < >):

    nimi: Honda CRV Esite br /
    numero: 144 br /
    koko: 210 x 260 mm br /
    laajuus: 32 sivua ja kannet br /
    paperi: sisäsivut: silk 170 g; kannet: gloss 250 g br /
    värit: 4/4 cmyk br /
    jälkikäsittely: stiftaus br /

    So there are two problems. The extra br / which spoils it and I can’t use some symbols with in the text (such as + sign for example).

    I’ve been thinking that there must be some code that contains the text in its own container and that it accepts separate lines and symbols as is? Trying to google a solution is like trying find a pin in a haystack.

    Thanks a lot if you have any ideas!

    Hi tsambam,

    You will probably have better luck on the actual Gravity Forms forums for a question like that since its to do with the actual functionality of the plugin itself.
