This is an important update to keep expected functionality with Gravity Forms 1.9.12 or newer.

Gravity Forms 1.9.12 changed some things related to fetching entries, and this caused issues with our A-Z Filters Extension (fixed in version 1.0.6) and the core GravityView plugin. Version 1.13 of GravityView resolves these issues.

New shortcode power!

You can now display the number of entries in a View using [gravityview detail="total_entries"] in your Custom Content fields. Learn what other new information you can display.

Let’s say you want to display “FLOATY LOVES CATS” above an embedded View, but you only want to show it when looking at a single entry. It wasn’t easy until now: [gvlogic context="single"]FLOATY LOVES CATS[/gvlogic]. Want this functionality? Learn about the new context parameter.

There’s a lot more that is in this update; read the full changelog below!
