Frequently Asked Questions
Can more than one gate be created?
Yes. You may create unlimited gates.
Do all gates have to use the same Gravity Form?
No. You may use the same Gravity Form on multiple gates if you want to, but you don’t have to.
Do users have to allow cookies to see gated content?
No. However, users who don’t allow cookies will have to fill in the form every time they visit a gated page.
Does a cookie for one “gate” allow users to access all gated content?
No. Each cookie only works with the gate it was given from. That gate may be used on unlimited pages and posts.
Do I have to use a different gate for each gated page or post?
No. You may use the same gate on multiple pages and posts, but you don’t have to.
Can I see what pages a person visits after they get through a gate?
Yes, if the visitor allows cookies. If a visitor allows cookies and has passed through a gate, each time the person visits a page or post that uses the same gate, a note will be added to the person’s original Gravity Forms form entry.
