Import Gravity Form JSON

I am just rocking with the free trial, got a multisite going, created template site with 4 pages, each page has a Gravity Form.

Here is my Main Site:

Here is my Template Site:

Here is user created Site:

Although everything seems working my 4 forms are not coming through to the user site, click page "Back Index" on template then on user site billstudio. The Gravity Forms plugin is there and active but just no forms imported/created.

Before I started using your plugin I had a manual import working via json that got my 4 forms but I cannot seem to make it work with the plugin.

Previous setup (and still there) is in main site wp-config:
define( 'GF_IMPORT_FILE', '' );

My question is how can I pull the json into new created sites via WPMU template?

Thank you!

    Hello Bob

    When you say template site do you mean the template using our New Blog Templates plugin? If so, then the GF information should be copied automatically.

    About the json import, would you please tell me more about this? I mean what happens if you try the json import method now? Do you get any error? If you think there is error in the background, you can enable debug log.

    To enable debug mode please go to wp-config.php and change

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );


    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

    Now try the import again. That will create a file called debug.log inside wp-content folder. Open that file, check the very bottom and you will see the latest errors. Please send me those.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Ash,

    Did some testing today and found the issue, on my blog template I checked the 8 Advanced Fields Additional Tables, this allowed my forms to be created in new blogs.

    Working perfectly now, thank you!
