I've got 3 challenges that I have been trying to figure out and need further help.

1 - How do I get the signature field in Formidable properly mapped to my template? Right now I have the formidible field idea set in the Value like this [172].

2 - <p> tags are showing up in my input fields that are in a formidable forms repeater. How do I remove those tags from the pdf?

3 - With a check box field you have the option to set an "other" checkbox where the user can type in their own option. How do I map these "other" fields to pull in the data if the user types an answer into the "other" box?

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

1. It correctly mapping, however you must map "Signature" field instead of "input" if you used such. (screenshot 1)
2. Issue must be possible to resolve with using adding wpautop=0 to shortcode, as [123:1 wpautop=0]
3. Formidable Forms saving it as list, you can try to solve it with replacing know values and leave only other, ||| is delimited between difference values that must be replaced:

[e2pdf-format-output explode=", " implode="" filter="replace,trim" search="Option 1|||Option 2|||" replace=""][15][/e2pdf-format-output]

* shortcode will explode value with ", " and replace everything from "search" attribute.

We remain at your service.
We would really appreciate your feedback at WordPress.org!

Thanks for the help! I was able to resolve numbers 1 and 2. Still working on 3. The issue that I didn't explain good enough is that there are 4 "other" options for this field.

I followed your example for one of the fields and it worked however it printed the answers to all 4 "other" options for the one option I tested. The other thing I noticed is that it didn't check the checkbox even though it printed the answers in the one "other" option.

Hi,

It looks like it's not possible to accomplish the task with standard Formidable Forms shortcodes which is used in most cases with E2Pdf, however we are currently preparing an update which must allow such behavior. Please expect update in nearest time. We will update this thread as soon as it will be available.

Sorry for inconvenience.

We remain at your service.

Hi,

We just released an update to RC version with multiple "Other checkbox support". Fix will be included to main brunch on next week, however you can apply update now by turning on "E2Pdf" -> "Settings" -> "Release Candidate Builds" (Update from E2Pdf.com). After option turned on: check for plugin updates, and update plugin to 1.13.09 (screenshot attached).

It's recommended to turn off this option after update.

With 1.13.09 version you must be able to use "Visual Mapper" to correctly map "Other" checkbox and its inputs.

Let us know please if you will face any issues. Thank you.

We remain at your service.
