Hi all, I would like to display user submitted forms into Views - Detail page just like how user submitted on frontend with labels and fields.

Have you reviewed the Formidable Knowledgebase article about creating view detail pages? https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/create-a-view/#kb-create-a-detail-page-with-an-image

I've review it. But what i wanted was to display the form with what my frontend form shows with the fields filled up by user. not a plain filled text html

You can insert a link to edit the entry and it would look like this (the form with pre-filled existing entries). If you want it to display in a form, but not be edited, that will take some work.

@Bobby, if i do that on details page what should i put?

Bobby Clapp replied 1 year ago

The detailed page of a view? Maybe something like [formidable id=x entry_id=[id]] where x is the form ID.

@Bobby, I've tried your shortcode. It shows the form but without the filled up fields by the user. Also the URL is correct where the entry_ID is showing. Any idea how to show to filled up forms by the user?

Is the user logged in and did you save the user's user_id with the entry?

Make sure you have allowed front end editing in the form settings as well. If you’re trying to mimic the form as it was filled out. Just keep in mind by doing this you’re allowing the data to be changed, hope that is something you are intending with your work flow.  

There is a hook you could use to set the fields as read only in edit mode, when interacting with the front end if need be.
