    Hi, I am using the Embed Jotform plugin to include a number of forms on our website. I need to supply a parameter to one of the forms as the user has already pre-selected on of the options of the form. This works on our existing Google Sites but not on Wordpress that we are moving to.

    Google Sites page and with Form that defaults using the parameter ?shareTrade=1000

    Word Press site that does not work with the parameter using the Embed Jotform

    See the screenshot for the code that is included to the Word Press site

    I have cloned your form named "Share Trade Tracker Subscription Payment" on my side.

    As far as I investigated the form on my end, the following parameter in order to prepopulate the related field is not correct: ?shareTrade=1000

    You could use it if shareTrade would be a textbox. However, your shareTrade named fields are radio buttons that can not be prepopulated with a number as seen below:

     

    Which radio button do you want to prepopulate?

    If you want to prepopulate the first one, you can use the following URL:

    https://www.jotform.com/form/71807082402955?shareTrade[][0]=1

    If you want to prepopulate the second one, you can use the following URL:

    https://www.jotform.com/form/71807082402955?shareTrade[][1]=1 

    If you want to prepopulate the third one, you can use the following URL:

    https://www.jotform.com/form/71807082402955?shareTrade[][2]=1
