Ratings & Reviews

GravityView Ratings & Reviews

With the Ratings & Reviews extensions, you can allow visitors to rate, review & comment on your Gravity Forms entries. Perfect for business and event listings.

  • Display star ratings for entries
  • Allow users to upvote and downvote entries
  • Add full reviews
  • Reply to reviews or comments

Social Sharing & SEO

GravityView Social Sharing & SEO

The Social Sharing & SEO extensions allows you to add social sharing buttons to your Views and optimize your SEO.

  • Add social sharing buttons to your directory listings
  • Integrates with Yoast SEO
  • Improve SEO and therefore organic traffic

(SEO stands for “Search Engine Optimization” – it’s the process of optimizing your web pages to rank higher in search results!)

A-Z Filter

GravityView A-Z Filters

With the A-Z Filter extension, you can display a list of links from A-Z and allow users to filter entries alphabetically.

  • Choose what field to filter by
  • Choose which alphabet to use (supports multiple languages!)
  • Show letters in capital or lowercase

Multiple Forms (Beta)

GravityView Multiple Forms

Our Multiple Forms extension allows you to combine data from multiple forms into one, long entry. If you have two forms that share common field values, you can join the forms on that field, and display data from both forms in one View. This works like an SQL “join” operation.

Adding Join conditions using the  Multiple Forms add on for GravityView.
