Is it possible to add a gravity form, using a custom post field, that serves as a text box on individual posts, to be used for notes about the accompanying video, also on the page, by the end user? Is there a way to store those notes in the database, and retrieve that data for them when they return to the post, or better yet, store the notes in a place they can access when they login again? In other words, I want a note-taking application, using gravity forms, that maintains the text from each post in in a central place for that specific user. That way each user would see his cumulative notes, or an aggregate of those notes somewhere on the site, like perhaps a page, that captures all of the notes? The posts are actually course units from fly-plugins. There is an app similar to this called wp-notepad, but instead of putting the note field next to or below the lesson, as it said it would, it places it on top, making it impossible to watch the video and take notes at the same time. Then it saves the notes in the dashboard for each user. Just asking.

Hi ddsharper

This forum is for questions related to hosting (with 3rd party hosting companies). I would suggest that you post your question in a WebDesign forum perhaps where it is more likely to be seen, thanks.
