GravityView now supports editing post fields!

In previous versions of GravityView (and in Gravity Forms itself), if you wanted to edit Post Fields, you would see a message like this:

Before, you could only edit posts from the post page. Boo.

That was no good! Now, you can now edit that post from the Edit Entry page inside GravityView. GravityView supports editing post content in a rich text editor, just like you would expect. Learn more.

Sort View by column
Users can sort View results by clicking the sort icons at the top of a table. It’s easy to enable for existing Views, too. See sorting in action.

We hope you enjoy the new functionality.
