Using Gravity Forms ‘gform_pre_delete_feed’ PHP action

The gform_pre_delete_feed action hook allows you to perform a custom action just before a feed is deleted from the database.


To run the hook for all add-ons:

add_action('gform_pre_delete_feed', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);

To target a specific add-on:

add_action('gform_{SHORT_SLUG}_pre_delete_feed', 'your_function_name', 10, 2);

Refer to the Gravity Forms Add-On Slugs article for a list of possible short slugs.


  • $id (int) – The ID of the feed being deleted.
  • $addon (object) – The current instance of the add-on object which extends GFFeedAddOn or GFPaymentAddOn (e.g. GFCoupons, GF_User_Registration, GFStripe).
