We were tired of switching between a bunch of different boxes to configure our View and the different GravityView Extension settings. So we combined them into a pretty little box. Tabbed metabox settings makes configuring your View settings easier. It's mah poll widget, not yers.We also added support for the Gravity Forms Poll Addon (a new widget displays quiz results in the View) and improved support for Gravity Forms Quiz Addon. There are a bunch of other fixes as well, but those are the big’uns.

Here’s a full list of changes for the release:

1.8 on May 26

  • Added: Quiz Addon support: add Quiz score fields to your View configuration
  • Added: Possibility to search by entry creator on Search Bar and Widget

    • Use to determine if a value is blank.
    • Use to determine if a value is not blank.
    • See "Matching blank values" in the shortcode documentation
