Gravity Perks for Gravity Forms
Gravity Forms is a robust and widely-utilized WordPress plugin that empowers users to create advanced forms for their websites. However, what if we could further enhance the functionality of this versatile tool? This is where Gravity Perks comes in. Gravity Perks, a powerful add-on package, supercharges Gravity Forms by introducing a host of unique and innovative features.
Gravity Perks is a suite of WordPress plugins (referred to as ‘perks’) designed specifically to extend the functionality of Gravity Forms. This platform offers a collection of more than 30 unique perks, each designed to solve a specific problem or add a valuable feature to your forms.
What Makes Gravity Perks Unique?
Imagine JetPack, but specially designed for Gravity Forms. That’s Gravity Perks! Each perk works seamlessly within the Gravity Forms environment, adding a unique set of features that extend the forms’ capabilities. From managing complex forms with nested forms to dynamic field population and unique ID generation, Gravity Perks offers a solution for practically every need.
Consistent Updates and Development
Gravity Perks is regularly updated with new features. On average, a new perk is introduced every 3-4 months. This continuous development ensures users always have access to fresh functionalities that can further enhance their Gravity Forms experience.
Gravity Perks takes documentation seriously. Each perk is exhaustively documented, ensuring users can fully understand and effectively use each feature. Each release comes with updated documentation, ensuring you have the most current information at your fingertips.
Gravity Perks is designed to work seamlessly with Gravity Forms’ existing interfaces. This means you don’t have to waste time learning a new system. Instead, you can quickly and easily extend the functionality of Gravity Forms through the straightforward addition of perks.
Gravity Perks enhances your WordPress dashboard, allowing you to install and manage your perks without manually installing plugins. It’s a straightforward, streamlined way to customize your forms and boost your website’s functionality.
Installing Gravity Perks and its individual perks involves a two-step process. First, you download the main .zip file which contains all the individual Perks, each as a separate .zip file. Then, each Perk needs to be installed and activated individually. Let’s dive into the process:
- Download the Gravity Perks Package: Download the .zip file containing all the Perks from the “Latest” button to your computer. Extract the .zip file, which will result in a folder containing 34 separate .zip files, each representing an individual Perk.
- Log into your WordPress admin: You need to be an administrator to install new plugins. So, log in to your WordPress admin account.
- Navigate to the Plugins page: This is found in the left-hand menu of your WordPress admin dashboard. Click on “Plugins”, and then “Add New” at the top of the page.
- Upload and Activate Each Perk: At the top of the Add Plugins page, click “Choose File” in the field that appears. Navigate to the location on your computer where you extracted the main .zip file. Select one of the Perk .zip files and click “Install Now” to upload the file and install the plugin. After the plugin is installed, click the “Activate” link to activate the Gravity Perk.
- Repeat for Each Perk: Repeat the process of uploading and activating for each of the individual Perk .zip files.
Remember, although Gravity Perks and its individual Perks are plugins, each one must be installed and activated separately. Once you’ve installed and activated all of your desired Perks, they will work seamlessly together to enhance your Gravity Forms experience.
