WHat is "send post data"?Asked by pini on June 11, 2010 at 03:36 PM
JotForm Founder"Send Post Data" is a feature that allows you to post form data to your Thank You page.
Some Use Cases:
- If you would like to save the form posts on your web site using your own server side script.
- If you would like to use the form data posted on your Thank You page.
To see how it works:
1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
<? print_r($_POST); ?>
2. Go to "Setup & Share" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php
3. Enable the "Send Post Data"
4. Save and submit your form.
The data on my "thank you" landing page is all garbled when I place <? print_r($_POST); ?> on the page.
<pre><? print_r($_POST); ?></pre>
Is this what I need to allow my users to see what they have entered, i.e. a entry confirmation?
If so, is every post saved or is it constantly overwritten? If so, what happens if two people post at the same time?
I've not used this feature before but am looking for a way to show people what they have entered so they can print it.
You can add a Print button to the form. That would be easier. But yes, you can use this feature to show confirmation page with the values they entered.
Same is also possible if you use the "Thank You Message" option. You can add tags to the thank you message just like the email alerts.
how do i do this when i am using yola sitebuilder?
Can you please open a new thread with detailed information about what you need to accomplish with yola sitebuilder?
