In the current Bricks Beta, a lot of adjustments have been made to the form logic. One significant change necessitates technical modifications for Pro Forms.
My aim has always been to stay as native as possible. That’s why Pro Forms have been leveraging the actions used natively by Bricks in forms up to this point. With the new Bricks update, this is no longer possible for the Nestable Pro Forms approach. Currently, I am in the process of replacing all native Bricks actions with custom ones.
However, this also comes with advantages! For example, many users missed the ability to assign a specific role or meta-data to the new user in the “Register User” action. Since we are now writing those actions ourselves, we are much more flexible in extending its functionality.
What does this mean for Nestable Pro Forms? In the current Bricks Beta, form submission will not work when using Nestable Pro Forms. The original Pro Forms variant should be used instead. However, since Nestable Pro Forms are experimental and have not been used on live pages, this should not be a problem.
I am making good progress in replacing the native actions, and the implementation is nearly complete.
The plan is to release a new version 2.0 as a Beta once the adjustments are finished. The Beta will already include a stable version of Nestable Pro Forms as well as the current changes. Since some code needs to be rewritten, a Beta release makes sense in this case.
In this post, I wanted to keep you updated on this matter
