    How to use Post submission Data?

    Asked by pavelgon on April 12, 2017 at 03:27 AM

    Hey. If I have stopped on the item "Set Yes on Send Post Data". I chose "Yes". And I do not choose in the Thank You wizard, Redirect to an external link. How can I get POST data in this case?

     

    My form appears in the modal window. I want that Thank You would appear in the modal window too, but I would have to POST Data filled by the user.

    Send post data option posts data on the Thank you page on your own site where you need to use some server-side language in order to process the data received. 

    Do you have the PHP page prepared to interpret the data?

    Yes I have page prepared to interpret the data. And I use it for save data in db. But, I want to use your Thank You page, and retrieve POST Data to my own website page without redirection URL.

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately, you can not do that with default thank you page since you need your own PHP flle, and that file needs to be uploaded somewhere so you can redirect your Thank you page to it.

    Regarding the PDF link of submission. I'm not completely sure, but you should be able to send it by using this method:

    $_POST['pdf-link'];

    pdf-link is the link to the submission PDF. 

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
