Its purpose is to empower users to build their own custom layouts for displaying Gravity Forms entry data on the front end of their websites.
While GravityView’s List and Table layouts are designed to suit most needs, DIY Layout caters to users who require more flexibility and control over the appearance and structure of their displayed data.
One of the main advantages of DIY Layout is that it enables users to move beyond the confines of GravityView’s preset templates.
Instead of being limited to pre-designed templates, DIY Layout allows users to create completely unique and personalized layouts using HTML and CSS.
This freedom ensures that users can tailor the appearance of their entries to perfectly match their website’s design and branding.
With DIY Layout, users gain the ability to create custom designs without having to rely on the Custom Content field to write their own markup.
This means that users can now wrap fields in different HTML tags to control the structure of their displayed entries.
By manipulating the HTML structure in this way, users can achieve a highly customized and visually appealing display of their form entry data.
In addition to HTML control, users can also leverage CSS customization through DIY Layout. This means that they can style their layouts using CSS without having to add unnecessary or excessive code.
The result is a streamlined and efficient process of creating stunning and personalized layouts for their Gravity Forms data.
One of the key benefits of DIY Layout is its ease of use. Users can achieve all this customization and design control right within the drag-and-drop editor, eliminating the need to modify PHP files or override GravityView field templates.
This streamlines the entire process and reduces or eliminates the necessity for custom PHP programming in Gravity Forms development projects.
In summary, DIY Layout is an essential add-on for GravityView users who seek full control over how their Gravity Forms entries are displayed on the front end.
By allowing users to build their own layouts with HTML and CSS, it offers unprecedented flexibility and customization options, enabling users to create visually appealing and personalized displays without the need for extensive PHP programming or modification of core templates.
