    Hi there,

    You can use the 'Send Post Data' feature to get the info entered in the form
    and use it in php.

    First you need to enable Send Post on the form. To do this:

    1. Open your form in JotForm
    2. Click on 'Setup & Embed' then choose 'Preferences'
    3. In the preferences pop up window select the 'Advance Settings' tab
    4. Set 'Yes' to enable Send Post Data

    In order to send POST data to your thank you page, your thank you page should be a PHP (or equavalent) script, HTML files will not work.

    1. Create a test.php file with the following codes in it:


       echo "<pre>";
       echo "</pre>"

    2. Go to "Setup & Embed" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://www.domain.com//test.php
    3. Save and Submit your  form.

    Hope this helps.
