Pro Forms - Displaying data from form submissions dynamically

Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to display the data from forms dynamically on a page for public view, and if so how? I’ve been looking around and it seems like it might be possible, but I just can’t figure it out.

I’m getting form submissions in the database, but I’d like to find a way to display a particular form to just show the data people post on a particular page.

If anyone can provide any advice, I’d really appreciate it.

Hey :slight_smile: Currently this is not possible out of the box, but I plan to create a new functionality for this :slight_smile: In the meanwhile, you would need a coding solution querying the database manually.

Thanks for such a fast reply.

I’m very new to coding myself. If there’s some quick code that I could use as a work around I’d really appreciate a generic copy paste of what I’d need to use and where. Or a link with information I could follow (I’m not even sure exactly what to google). Totally understand if it’s too complicated though.

Otherwise, I guess I might be copying and pasting for a while. Glad to hear that it’s coming though

I’ve never tried this but you can use the pro form to create new posts → Pro Forms – Bricksforge Docs

In theory, if somewhere on your site you have a query loop showing all the posts of a cpt, once a new post is created using the form, it should show up there as well. Then you could adjust the amount of posts / filtering depending on how many you wanna show (for example only the last 3 or whatever).

Thank you very much for your advice. I’ve managed to get it working.

It will be nice when it works with the submissions so that they’re separate from my posts, but it’s a good start.

I mean pretty much everything in WordPress is a posttype, even pages. So leaving that extra step to configure a custom post type exactly how you need it, which takes just a few minutes, gives you all the freedom you might need. If it’s implemented natively, it will be somewhat opinionated and you might miss certain features :wink: Glad it worked out though :slight_smile:

I have a question related to this one. I am using a multistep form, and the first step of the form is : “What is your name?” e.g. John. Then I would like to use the input from this field in the 2nd step of the form. Something like : “Okay, John, and what is your last name?” Is it possible to do this ?
