Using gravity forms as a replacement for your listing inquiry forms
Your manual listings are an important tool for generating results. To make things easy, a form is automatically included for display on these pages that will route leads to the admin email address on file.
However, you may decide that you want more control over the form fields, and or routing destinations of your lead capture, and for that you'll need to replace the form on the page. It's easy!

STEP TWO: CREATING YOUR FORM:
In your admin area, look for FORMS > NEW FORM
You'll be presented with a popup to give it a title and a description.
STEP THREE: VIEW FORM SETTINGS, CONFIRMATIONS AND NOTIFICATIONS
Each of your forms have a form settings area.
"Form settings" controls things like the "button label" which can be changed to something other than "Submit".
"Confirmations" controls how the form will be have for the end user when submitted. By default the form is simply replaced on the existing page with a "success" message. You may edit this message or even use a URL redirect to take a user to any other location of your site, like a thank you page.
"Notifications" controls outbound emails to recipients. An admin email will typically contain the data fields of the form for delivery of the form payload to the site owner. An optional additional notification can deliver an email to the user containing any message that is pertinent. Click "Add New" notification and configure delivery as appropriate.
STEP FOUR: USING YOUR NEW FORM:
Go to Pages > Add New to view a visual editor page where the Gravity Forms shortcode generator is located. Simply choose from the dropdown your preferred form, and decide whether to show the title and description or not. Hit "Insert Shortcode".
Your new shortcode is now ready to copy to your clipboard and paste anywhere you like!
