Conditional Field Display in ACF Based on Options Value

In ACF, the conditional logic for fields is constrained to data found in the other fields in the group. That works for most things. In this case, I wanted to have an options page for the theme that allowed two different patterns for timeline events. If you choose the “structured events” pattern, I want to […]

Making it work: Using Gravity Forms and URL parameters with Pardot and Canvas

We’ve been working with MIIS to get a non-credit course going in Canvas through Catalog.1 It’s been interesting to see what works smoothly and what does not.

Gravity Form Field to Custom Post Type

This is a minor tweak if you’re using Gravity Forms with the Advanced Post Creation Plugin. Not much of a post but it never hurts to have more documentation out there. If you’re not using the Advanced Post Creation plugin, then this snippet works perfectly. If you are using it, the dropdown will be right […]
