    Capture fields to MySQL

    Asked by karenhagglund on November 20, 2012 at 02:22 PM

    Is it possible to capture data to MySQL? I'm using a plugin (cf7toDB) for WordPress. I have used the pugin on just a regualar plain fanila form. One hiddien field is needed. That's easy but also the action page needs a shortcode also.

    Is it possible to have your form invoke this short code or is it possible to set up a forward to my own thankyou page on my server?

    Thanks.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    This is possible to forward the data to the MySQL using custom script as a Thank You URL. We have a tutorial about this:

    How to Insert/Update Submissions to Your MySQL Database Using PHP

    If you change the action path, information will not be delivered to our servers.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
