    Will try the code and update you ASAP, thanks for the reply though. Thanks for taking out time.

    You’re an awesome person, if I earn good from this site I’d like to push in a donation, so just mail me your paypal [email removed] or write it here itself, whenever you feel free. I’ll be pushing the donation anytime. But just as I said no promises. But I really do appreciate the time you took out for resolving my issue personally.


    Excellent news. Glad to have helped. You can always made donations here.


    Gabriel, how would you modify that to target multiple pages?


    @plaxant – You can use an array of page / post IDs to check for instead of just one.

    This is done here:

    if ( ! is_page( 40 ) ) return;

    This will check is this is page 40. WordPress documentation for is_page tells us that we can either pass a numeric ID, a page slug or an array of variables.


    if ( ! is_page( array( 10, 20, 30, 40 ) ) return;

    You can also use other WordPress Conditional Tags here like for example forcing this on an entire category:

    if ( is_category( 'premium' ) ) return;

    Here is a snippet that may benefit anyone reading this thread. In this example, Field 1 should contain the # of credits that will be consumed when the form is submitted. If the current user’s account doesn’t have enough credits to cover this number of credits requested in this field’s value, the user will not be allowed to proceed.

    // Validate quantity of credits used against current account balance
    add_filter( 'gform_validation', 'custom_validation' );
    function custom_validation( $validation_result ) {
        $form = $validation_result['form'];
            // Grab user ID
    	$user_id = get_current_user_id();
            // Grab current credit balance
    	$balance = mycred_get_users_cred( $user_id );
        // If Field 1 is greater than the available balance, fail validation and return an error.
        if ( rgpost( 'input_1' ) > $balance ) {
            // set the form validation to false
            $validation_result['is_valid'] = false;
            //finding Field with ID of 1 and marking it as failed validation
            foreach( $form['fields'] as &$field ) {
                //NOTE: replace 1 with the field you would like to validate
                if ( $field->id == '1' ) {
                    $field->failed_validation = true;
                    $field->validation_message = 'Not enough credits.';
        //Assign modified $form object back to the validation result
        $validation_result['form'] = $form;
        return $validation_result;

    I’m wondering if you can also provide code to allow user onto the page but to show an error on the form saying the account balance is not enough.

    Not like the one above…I don’t want them to fill out the form first. But right away to check and throw an error if not enough points.


    Can you also provide a snippet that will output the current user points and allow me to add that value to a field?

    such as

    <div class=”one-half first”>
    Points required = xx

    <div class=”one-half”>
    Your Points = xx

    Thank You Gabriel, It Was Awesome Code. It Did Worked Perfectly. But Can U Write The Code Which Does the Following :-

    1) After Validation, The Validated Amount Would Be Deducted From User Balance.

    2) If You Can Write The Code, Please Let Me Know ! “I will Be Paying For The Code.” & That’s How I Can Appreciate Your Hard Work Through PayPal.

    Hope! You will seriously Look Into This Matter.

    How To Get Quick Support ?? I mean If I need to buy Add-On Or Something Like I need to have minimum token or what ? Please any one suggest me If I Have to Buy Any Add-on then I will Go for it !

    Thank You !


    @Suman There is no quick support. I am alone here supporting and developing myCRED. I can only do so much. Issue resolution is prioritised over customization requests. I am right now fully booked and can not provide any customization work, especially for third-party plugins that I do not know well enough.

    @Gabriel, I Can validate Field One with the above code but u simply modify above code so that I can validate More than one one field. For example, If I want to validate Field 1,3 & 6.

    Hi, please I need this same issue to be resolved also but I’ve been trying to get familiar with the gravityform before submission hook but I couldn’t find a reliable solution yet!

    Gravityform has an hook to stop a form from not been submitted. The problem now is how do we get this done, I’m currently using a snippets to deduct balance due to the form selected value but I need it to be checking balance if sufficient before submission.

    THANKS IN advance
