    Can jotform send form information to a data base on my website?

    Asked by guest_22765404433047 on October 03, 2012 at 01:02 PM

    I am currently using jotform to have facebook fans that like my page join our email listings. I have to manually retrieve this information and enter them into the data base on my website. Can the information be sent to a php page on my site and them my site will do the rest?

    Hi there,

    You can accomplish this using our thank you page as a PHP page.

    You can connect to your data base using PHP.  In order to achieve this you need to use the Send Post Data feature.  It will post the POST data to your Thank you page.

    Please take a look at the guide provided above and let me know if we can further assist you!

    We are happy to announce that we have released Jotform Webhooks,  this feature would replace Send Post Data + Custom URL Thank You Page workaround in order to help you transfer forms data to your own database using your own script codes.
