Fresh Forms for Gravity


Caching is great for scenarios where your post or page content it’s not changed frequently, but if you have a form embedded to which you do changes very often or you’re using dynamic code, that doesn’t run for a cached page, or using third-party solutions relaying in dynamic live data (e.g. reCAPTCHA), using caching in these cases is going to cause issues.

An easy solution is to configure your caching plugin or proxy to exclude the page where the form is embedded from caching, but you need also to remember this when you create a new page or embed a new form in an existing page…

This plugin will take care of the above automatically doing the following:

  1. Flush current cache on plugin activation. This is required in order to allow the next step to run.
  2. Dynamically check if there’s a Gravity Forms shortcode or Gutenberg block in your post (any post type) or page content using WordPress core functions for it.
    If so, it will prevent post/page caching for supported caching plugins, browsers and CDN/Proxies.

There’s no options page, and nothing is saved on the database. Nothing!

It should work with any caching plugin with support for DONOTCACHEPAGE constant, and proxies respecting the use Cache-Control HTTP header.

Caching plugins supported:

  • Autoptimize
  • Comet Cache
  • Hummingbird
  • Kinsta Cache
  • LiteSpeed Cache
  • SG Optimizer
  • W3 Total Cache
  • WP Engine System
  • WP Fastest Cache
  • WP Optimize
  • WP Rocket
  • WP Super Cache

Caching plugins NOT supported:

  • Breeze. It doesn’t support DONOTCACHEPAGE constant or filters to skip caching.

CloudFlare and other proxies:

This plugin will add appropriate HTTP header to pages with a Gravity Forms to exlude the page HTML from caching when the web host setup allows it.

By default CloudFlare doesn’t cache the page HTML, it does only when you have configured it to „Cache Everything”. In this case, after activating the plugin, you need to purge cache in your CloudFlare account or wait for cache expiration to let CloudFlare know the page must be excluded from caching.

Certain hosts like WP Engine and Kinsta don’t allow HTTP headers modification from WordPress side of things, therefore CloudFlare support will not work for these hosts.

Other proxy services should work in a similar way, but I don’t have access to test any other proxy service. Feel to reach me if you want to provide me access to add support for your proxy service (documentation for the proxy would be required).


  • PHP 7.0 or higher.
  • WordPress 4.9 or higher.
  • Gravity Forms 2.3 or higher.
  • Only forms embedded using classic editor shortcode or Gutenberg block are supported.


Just install and activate, no settings page.

The plugin is not working in LiteSpeed server

As stated on this plugin description it supports the LiteSpeed Cache plugin, not LiteSpeed server directly. So if you’re using a LiteSpeed based web host, you need to install LiteSpeed Cache plugin before installing Fresh Forms for Gravity.

As regular users of Gravity Forms and a certain leading WP host, we recently hit the first time an issue with cached data getting attached to the wrong form submission - a potential nightmare. The host was able to disable caching on the form page, but we'd have to go and ask them every time we created a new form, which is a pain. So we found Fresh Forms for Gravity which solves the problem! Except - it doesn't work with our host! Except - it does now, thanks to way-beyond-the-call-of-duty support from Samuel in testing, identifying a solution and implementing it in a new release, all incredibly quickly. Problem all sorted for the future and we are very grateful.

I just wanted to shoot you a quick note about this nifty little plugin you created. First, let me say, please at the very least put up a way for people to donate to you if they can. This plugin saved me a ton of headaches and is now living on all the sites where I have Gravity Forms installed - for god's sake, sell this little sucker. Genius. This is just genius. You may want to consider the pricing model the One Dollar Plugin guy uses, $1 per month, $12 per year. This makes it affordable for the very little guys. Second, just a good ol' fashioned THANK YOU! You get the hero of my day award. Seriously. The awards' not worth a damn thing but you got it anyhow. A sure fan here!
