GravityView 2.4

πŸ“† Happy Emoji Day! πŸŽ‘πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ

July 17 is World Emoji Day, and also the release date of Version 2.4 of GravityView! This GravityView update includes much-requested functionality and bug fixes. Alas, there were no additional emoji included in GravityView. This was, indeed, an oversight. 😿

Here are some highlights of the release:

Display an entry counter with the {sequence} Merge Tag

Learn about the {sequence} Merge Tag.

We added a {sequence} Merge Tag, which allows you to add a counter to the results in a View. This is a handy addition. Check out the video above for more information, and you can read about the Merge Tag on our docs site.

Show all entries when exporting a CSV

Customers love the functionality in GravityView that allows exporting entries as CSV by adding /csv/ to the URL. That functionality had a limitation, though: by default, it would only export the number of entries shown on a page (with a default of twenty-five). We were asked many times “How do I export all my GravityView entries to CSV at once?”

The new "Show all in CSV" setting in GravityView.

We heard you: In 2.4, we added a checkbox to export all entries at once. To enable in your View, check the new “Show all in CSV” checkbox.

Changes to who can edit a View

We are changing the capabilities required to add and edit a View in GravityView. Before Version 2.4, users with the Author role were able to create and edit Views, even if they lacked a capability called unfiltered_html. This capability gives users the permission to add HTML to a site that may include code that isn’t safe, like external JavaScript. In 2.4, we tightened security by requiring users to have the unfiltered_html capability to edit a View.

We understand this may be an inconvenience, and apologize! Here’s how to add the required capability to an existing role (such as Author) on your site.

All the changes

Here’s the full changelog for the release. If you have any questions, please email us at support@gravityview.co and let us know!
