    Post Data not working

    Asked by InspiredMedia on November 05, 2014 at 09:51 AM



    I have followed several directions and examples on your forum with no luck. Simple I am trying to POST  user submitted data from my form Post Test data to a custom Thank You Page. None of you examples clearly explain how to do this. Some say use web hook with I did but could not get my data to display and other say use Post Data on the form.


    I just tried the post data using one of your examples scripts:


    $answers = $_POST;

     $url1 = "http://investview.webinarprophet.net/posttest1/"; // This is the URL address of the custom web page


     $var1 = "?q1_name[first]=".urlencode($answers[q1_name][0]);

     $var2 = "&q9_name9[last]=".urlencode($answers[q9_name9][1]);

     $var3 = "&q3_email=".urlencode($answers[q3_email]);

     $var4 = "&q4_phone4=".urldecode($answers[q4_phone4]);

     $url2 = $url1.$var1.$var2.$var3.$var4;



    I have replaced the data with my fields and added the url to the custom thank you page. The script errors out saying too many redirects. This should be a very simple process. I am sure other paying subscribers are having similar issues.

    I've cloned your JotForm and made some corrections to post data code. Please check the demo JotForm below if it works for you. Here I've printed the form values directly on the page.


    You can see the code of the redirected/form values printed page here
