    Forms to database (MYSQL)

    Asked by bocnroll on May 25, 2011 at 04:10 AM



    I would like to know if it's possible to send the forms results to a database, like MYSQL.

    Can I modify the "send" button? Is it possible?

    Thank you so much.

    Hi Albert,

    With the use of the send post option you can send the data submitted in the form
    to your database.

    To see how it works:
    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:
    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.

    As for your 2nd question can you please provide details on what you mean by
    modify the send button?
