    Using Jotform submission data in WordPress page

    Asked by aipp on May 12, 2017 at 07:05 AM

    Hi guys, 

     

    This might not be the place to ask this, but god i have searched all over without finding anything. I hope you guys can help me since you're the best customer care team I've ever encountered 

    Here is what I have and need to happen:

     

    1- I have a Semi-complicated form that has many thank you pages at the moment and it also needs to do some calculations that Jotform conditions and calculations cant provide easily.

    2- when a customer fills the form and clicks submit. I need them to be redirected to a thank you page on my wordpress website.

    3- that thank you page must have their input data and be able to show it to the end user (or maybe later on ill use that data in some JS calculations but thats for later)

    4- what I found on this forum was:

            a-  enable post data and add the php link to your custom thank you page. well I am not sure how to accomplish that when using wordpress.

           b- create a report page and embed to my website. sadly that's not what I am looking for.

     

    Please help, Note that I have some PHP experience but its really lacking (otherwise i wouldn't need help with this)

     

    Thank you again guys, will be waiting patiently for you reply.

    Hello,

    First of all, thank you very much for your kind words to us. We're trying to do our best.

    Related to your problem, you did a correct research. The solutions are the ones that you have found.

    You should enable the post data option in the form settings and you can pass this data with PHP coding as you can see in this guide.

    Then use WordPress functions in order to use these data as you can see in the following guide: https://developer.wordpress.org/reference/functions/wp_insert_post/ 

    Also, please check the related thread at the following URL: https://www.jotform.com/answers/207961-Display-Form-Data-as-Posts-in-Wordpress 

    This task requires PHP coding skills. You need to use WordPress Insert Method and also JotForm Post Method.

    I hope this will help you.

    Thanks.
