  • Feature Product subtotal, shipping and total have been added to $form_data['field'] array to make it easier to work with product details in the custom template.
  • Feature Added two new default template files. One displays field and name in two rows (like you see when viewing an entry in the admin area) and the other removes all styling. See documentation on use.
  • Security Tightened PDF template security so that custom templates couldnt be automatically generated by just anyone. Now only logged in users with the correct privileges and the user who submitted the form (matched against IP) can auto generate a PDF. See documentation on usage.
  • Depreciated Removed form data that was added directly to the $form_data array instead of $form_data['field'] array. Users upgrading will need to update their custom templates if not using field data from the $form_data[field] array. If using $form_data['field'] in your custom template this wont affect you.
  • Bug Fixed problem with default template not showing and displaying a timeout error. Removed table tags and replaced with divs that are styled appropriately.
  • Bug The new plugin theme folder will successfully create when upgrading. You wont have to deactivate and reactivate to get it working.

  • Bug fixed problem with redirecting to login screen even when logged in while accessing template file through the browser window directly.
  • Bug fixed error where sample template would reimport itself automatically even after deleting it. Will now only reimport if any important changes to template need to be viewed straight after an update.
  • Bug Moved render_to_pdf.php constants to pdf.php so we can use the constants in the core files. Was previously generating an error.
  • Housekeeping Cleaned up core template files, moved functions into classes and added more in-file documentation.
  • Housekeeping moved install/upgrade code from pdf.php to installation-update-manager.php
  • Housekeeping changed pdf-entry-detail.php class name from GFEntryDetail to GFPDFEntryDetail to remove compatibility problems with Gravity Forms.
  • Housekeeping created pdf-settings.php file to house the settings page code.
2.1.1 2015-01-08
  • Bug - Signatures stopped displaying after 2.1.0 update. Fixed issue.
  • Bug - First time install code now won't execute if already have configuration variables in database
2.2.0 2015-01-08
  • Compatibility - Ensure compatibility with Gravity Forms 1.7. Weve updated the functions.php code and remove gform_user_notification_attachments and gform_admin_notification_attachments hooks which are now depreciated. Functions gform_pdf_create and gform_add_attachment have been removed and replaced with gfpdfe_create_and_attach_pdf(). See upgrade documentation for details.
  • Enhancement - Added deployment code switch so the template redeployment feature can be turned on and off. This release doesn't require redeployment.
  • Enhancement - PDF_Generator() variables were getting long and complex so the third variable is now an array which will pass all the optional arguments. The new 1.7 compatible functions.php code includes this method by default. For backwards compatibility the function will still work with the variable structure prior to 2.2.0.
  • Bug - Fixed error generated by legacy code in the function PDF_processing() which is located in render_to_pdf.php.
  • Bug - Images and stylesheets will now try and be accessed with a local path instead of a URL. It fixes problem where some hosts were preventing read access from a URL. No template changes are required.
2.2.1 2015-01-08
  • Bug - Fixed HTML error which caused list items to distort on PDF
2.2.2 2015-01-08
  • DOMPDF - We updated to the latest version of DOMPDF - DOMPDF 0.6.0 beta 3.

3.0.1 2015-01-08

3.0.2 2015-01-08
  • Backwards Compatibility - While PHP 5.3 has was released a number of years ago it seems a number of hosts do not currently offer this version to their clients. In the interest of backwards compatibility we've re-written the plugin to again work with PHP 5+.
  • Signature / Image Display Bug - All URLs have been converted to a path so images should now display correctly in PDF.
3.1.0 2015-01-08
  • Feature - Added defaults to configuration.php which allows users to define the default PDF settings for all Gravity Forms. See the installation and configuration documentation for more details.
  • Feature - Added three new configuration options 'default-show-html', 'default-show-empty' and 'default-show-page-names' which allow different display options to the three default templates. See the installation and configuration documentation for more details.
  • Feature - Added filter hooks 'gfpdfe_pdf_name' and 'gfpdfe_template' which allows developers to further modify a PDF name and template file, respectively, outside of the configuration.php. This is useful if you have a special case naming convention based on user input. See for more details about using these filters.
  • Feature - Custom font support. Any .ttf font file added to the PDF_EXTENDED_TEMPLATE/fonts/ folder will be automatically installed once the plugin has been initialised. Users also have the option to just initialise the fonts via the settings page. See the font/language documentation for details.
  • Compatability - Use Gravity Forms get_upload_root() and get_upload_url_root() instead of hard coding the signature upload directory in pdf-entry-detail.php
  • Compatability - Changed depreciated functions get_themes() and get_theme() to wp_get_theme() (added in Wordpress v3.4).
  • Compatability - The plugin now needs to be initialised on fresh installation and upgrade. This allows us to use the WP_Filesystem API for file manipulation.
  • Compatability - Automatic copying of PDF_EXTENDED_TEMPLATE folder on a theme change was removed in favour of a user prompt. This allows us to take advantage of the WP_Filesystem API.
  • Compatability - Added Wordpress compatibility checker (minimum now 3.4 or higher).
  • Bug - Removed ZipArchive in favour of Wordpress's WP_Filesystem API unzip_file() command. Some users reported the plugin would stop their entire website working if this extension wasn't installed.
  • Bug - Fixed Gravity Forms compatibility checker which wouldn't return the correct response.

3.1.1 2015-01-08

To fix this the plugin attempts to determine the FTP directory, otherwise assumes it is the WP base directory.
  • Bug - Initialisation error message was being called but the success message was also showing.
3.1.2 2015-01-08

3.3.0 2015-01-08

  • Feature - Overhauled the settings page to make it easier to access features of the software
  • Feature - Added a Support tab to the settings page which allows users to securely (over HTTPS) submit a support ticket to the Gravity Form PDF Extended support desk
