    Hi Crazychap_1,

    After going through the website link you have posted, I understand that you have created a form with 4 to 5 sections and the same is posted to the jotform thank you page. 

    Yes jotform supports posting the form variables in the thank you page

    You can check the same by clicking the example link below

    In order to accomplish this, you need to follow the below steps

    1. Click the SETTINGS link


    2. On the left hand side you can see the FORM SETTINGS. Click FORM SETTINGS and click the SHOW MORE OPTIONS Button on the bottom 1516469384jot1.jpg

    3. This will display a list of options. You can scroll down to see the option "Send Post Data". Select the value YES from the list options under Send Post Data 1516469527jot1.jpg

    Once this is done we need to update the "THANK YOU" page to display the posted values. Follow the steps below for this.

    1. Click the "THANK YOU" Page on the left hand side


    2. This will display the "THANK YOU" page 1516469809jot1.jpg

    3. Now we need to display the form variable after the Thank You message. For this click the "Form Fields" text in the "THANK YOU" page editor. 1516469987jot1.jpg

    4. Clicking on the Form Fields will display all the form elements in a drop menu along with some custom field. Place the cursor where you want to display the form variable. In this example we have a form field named "What is your name" which wil lbe displayed after the "Thank You message". Select the field name. 


    5. Once you select this the following will be the final result 1516470280jot1.jpg

    Now you can preview the form and can do a testing. 

    As a jotform fellow user, I have explained my level best to help you out on this issue. 

    Feel free to respond, if you need further help on this. 

    thank you!

    In the Thank You Page Editor, please click the "Form Fields" dropdown and select the "Profile ID" option. This will generate the Unique Name of the field automatically. Here's an example: {profileId}.


    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
