    Post data not working

    Asked by InspiredMedia on October 24, 2014 at 06:39 PM

    I have built a test form, Post Data Test Today, and have enabled the Send Post Data. And also set the Thank You page to http://www.jotform.com/show-post-data.


    I still get an error message saying "No Post Data Received. Make sure you enabled Send Post Data.

    I cloned your form for testing purposes and made my own sample form.

    It seems that the script we have to receive POST and display variables and name fields in this link https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data seem not to work properly, but I believe the actual feature POST-DATA is still working, which means if you setup your own custom URL with a PHP script, it should receive your post data.

    You can still try your own custom "Thank You" page with a PHP script on it. The link below shows you how to get the name fields and properly label them on your script code.


    Here's a sample code:


    $email = $_POST['email4'];

    echo $email;


    Here is my form:


    And this is my custom "Thank You" page:



    I'll still escalate this so that our dev/technical team can still take a close look with the link https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data. We will notify you when an update has been made regarding this.

    Thank you.

    I believe this issue is resolved here:


    "The URL provided on the guide was lacking with a slash at the end. We have now updated it. So instead of using http://www.jotform.com/show-post-data replace it with http://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/ or http://www.jotform.com/show-post-data/index.php. This should work."

    Let us know if this resolves the issue.
