    Hello, my question is as said.

    Is it possible to use PHP to access the submission people have submitted to specific forms?

    I ask this as i have a website that is not using a "framework" (of sorts) such as WordPress and i'd like to use PHP to access my recently made form about commenting on posts on my new website.

    I wish to do this so that its automated and i wont have to log into jot form every time i get a few submissions and post them on the comments section of my website, then come back later and repeat.

    I also understand that it is possible to do a comment system in PHP for my website without using Jotform, but im currently a bit on the "no money to spare" side so i'd not beable to host a database specifically for that use.


    Thank you,

    Hello Phxvyper,

    I'm not certain with what you mean by accessing your submissions via PHP.  But there is an option to create reports for viewing the submission of your forms.  These reports can be embedded on your website.

    Here is a user guide that talks about grid list reports:

    Please take note that there are a number of different types of reports which you can generate such as an HTML table report (quite similar to grid list), and RSS Feed, and Visual Report which you can create statistical graphs based on your submissions.

    For us to be able to grasp further what you wish to achieve, can you elaborate what you have in mind, including sharing the link of your comments section?
