    I have had to put the thank you page back, so that it works for my customers but can change when someone looks at it

    Hello beatsahead,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you. 

    I did test this issue and it seems https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ does not display any post data in thank you page. 

    I am reporting it to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Any update on this yet?

    I have a programmer waiting to write a php script to be able to POST the results and he can't get the info he needs.

    Unfortunately, we do not have updates as of yet regarding this matter. Have you tried using webhooks instead for the meantime while the POST data bug is being addressed? If not yet, please check this out: https://www.jotform.com/help/245-How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm

    By the way, this problem may be just with the thank you page on the usage of the URL https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data. The post data on the form itself works well.

    I have made a test directing a form to my own PHP page capturing post data from forms and this is the result yielded:

    Feel free to proceed on working with your developer over this. Actually your developer should be able to create his own thank you page for capturing data as well for testing purposes.

    If you have questions, please let us know.

    Sorry for the trouble caused to you, As I can see you are using `https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data` as thank you page, but our system expects `https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/`. If you add `/` to your URL your problem should be fixed. If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact us.
