GDPR Compliance Tools

For a complete list of all GDPR compliance tools that are included or planned to be included in Caldera Forms, visit our GDPR overview page.

New Developer APIs

The GDPR API documentation has been updated to help with custom GDPR exporters. Under the hood, these APIs use a new class for paginated queries and a new query builder tool. Both are helpful for custom site development and add-on development.

Hard Version Requirments

As we announced in March, Caldera Forms 1.7 supports PHP 5.6 or later only. If your version of PHP is out of date, Caldera Forms will not fully load.

In previous versions of Caldera Forms, no WordPress version limit was enforced. Caldera Forms has grown more and more reliant on the WordPress REST API, which was merged in version 4.7 of WordPress. To prevent errors, Caldera Forms 1.7 will not load the full plugin if your version of WordPress is less than 4.7.
