    Send data from one page to form field on another page

    Asked by EnginesFirstLtd on February 26, 2013 at 09:13 AM

    Hi, I would like to have the visitors on my homepage enter their number plate and hit submit then be taken to my form page with their number plate already placed within my form in the "number plate" field.

    Is this possible?

    Many thanks.

    Yes this is quite possible. You can create a PHP file and set the Thank you page as a custom url directing to the php file you have created.

    For more detailed instruction, please check the link below


    Another way is to download the form source code and create a PHP function that would call the data from the form field.

    To find out how to download the form source code, please refer to the link below


    and for the PHP Get Data Tutorial visit 


    If you need further assistance, please contact us again.
