Brand New Release: Gravity Forms 2.5.8


We are pleased to announce the release of Gravity Forms 2.5.8. This latest update sees a number of additions and fixes to the plugin, including…

  • Fixed an issue for inputs where Gravity Form styles are overriding and breaking WordPress admin styles for certain inputs, textareas, and selects.
  • Fixed an issue of incorrect styles for the tel input type when in the entry edit view.
  • Fixed an issue that causes invalid markup in Field Descriptions to break the Form Editor.

Gravity Forms 2.5.8: What You Need to Know!

The release of Gravity Forms 2.5 saw some major changes to our form builder, and we have been delighted by the response from our customers and the wider WP community.

Here’s some advice for updating to Gravity Forms 2.5.8…

  • How to Update Gravity Forms – If you are already using Gravity Forms version 2.5 (or above) and have background updates enables, 2.5.8 will update automatically. However, if you are yet to install Gravity Forms 2.5, you will need to do so manually. You can do this by either updating Gravity Forms from your site’s plugin page within WordPress Admin or downloading 2.5.8 from your Gravity Forms account dashboard.
  • Clear Your Cache – Caching and script optimization plugins and services have been known to cause problems with the functionality of forms when Gravity Forms is updated to the latest version. To counter this issue, we recommend clearing/flushing the caches and the browser cache following all updates.
  • Further Resources – For more information on 2.5, and to get the most out of this major update to our form builder, check out the Gravity Forms 2.5 Resource Hub.
