    I'm looking to create a user-generated list of events listed by date

    Asked by Mattski on May 16, 2011 at 10:35 AM

    I'm looking to create a user-generated list of events listed by date. It can potentially be quite large and I don't really want to do it all by hand. If I can create a form that posts the information to the web page directly, it could save me quite a lot of time and effort.  Many thanks! Mattski

    Hi Mattski,

    I'm not sure but this form may be what you had in mind. If you are interested with the steps I took to create that form, please refer to this thread.

    If you have other questions or if you need clarifications regarding the steps outlined in that guide, please let me know. I'll be more than glad to assist you with your project. Thank you for using Jotform.

    Thanks Neil!

    No, that's not quite what I had in mind. Close, actually. I was looking for a form that one can fill out and it posts to a separate page altogether, based on which category is selected within the form. For example, if someone is completing a listing for a World War II reenactment on the weekend of May 21st, the information posts directly to the World War II page and is listed right after the last event for the weekend of May 14th, that sort of thing.

    Thanx!
    Mattski

    Hi Mattski,

    While I don't think what you're trying to achieve is explicitly availble within Jotform, there could be a workaround that utilizes HTTP POST sending of submission entries.

    It will need custom php programming done though, as the information passed through HTTP POST would need to be parsed and dumped into a database that would then be displayed on another custom php page. It sounds complicated, because it really is, and Jotform does not have this very advanced feature.

    Anyway, if you know php or if you know someone who is good at it, you can definitely take advantage of the HTTP POST feature.
