    Trying to pre-populate a form

    Asked by bartstamp on December 12, 2012 at 12:34 PM

    I followed the user guide, but the html no longer matches to user guide.  Here is the form I'm testing with.  I have a merge code in WishlistMember that I want to populate this form with.  Not sure how to do it.



    For this test I'm just trying to prepoulate the WishlistMember Username [wlm_username] into the textbox.

    Hi there, 

    WishlistMember is Word Press related and does not interact inheritly with our builder.

    You can prepopulate the fields of our foms through URL as explained on this guide:


    For example:

    http://jotformpro.com/form/23464637933966?userName=EddieWill put the name  "Eddie" in the text box

    http://jotformpro.com/form/23464637933966?userName=Jason - Will put "Jason" in the text box

    In order to achieve this automaticly from a list, you would have to have a programmer write a custom script.  As you can understand, this is already outside of our realm, but you can stand by to see if one of our members can provide you with a custom solution 

    Hope this helps!

    If I wanted to prepopulate the field on this form
    With "Linda" where would I put it? I can't
    find the same codes that are referenced in
    the help.

    Like what my colleague Ed has mentioned, WishlistMember cannot interact in a seamless manner with a form created with our form builder simply because they are hosted in two different platforms.

    We will look into WishlistMember's API and find out if there's any information which can be used to accomplish your goal of prepopulating the form with the member's username.

    We'll get back to you soon. Thanks!
