    I know its possible to pre-populate a form with data passed from your own site. By adding "?fieldname=value&" to the URL of a form.  Here is an example:

    http://www.jotform.com/form/1943702801?name=test1&email=test2

     

    BUT how can i use this same techinque to check a checkbox?

    Hmm interesting :)

     

    BUT ... I can't get it to work when using an iFrame

     

    eg : http://www.londonwebs.co.uk/contact?servicesRequired=Printing

     

    Could be to do with my seo friendly URL structure :( ?
