    Action URL of the form (YITH Pre-Launch WordPress)

    Asked by nsphosted on January 22, 2015 at 12:23 AM

    I know this is a newbie question, and I'm sure that I would probably find out the answer sooner or later.

    But I'm really out of time and I need a straight answer.


    I'm using WordPress to build a site. WordPress has this "feature" of a "Pre-Launch" page where you can enable a newsletter so people can enter email address and get notified when the site will be online.

    Thing is the newsletter asks for the "ACTION URL OF THE FORM". And I can't find it anywhere.

    - This is my form: http://www.jotformz.com/nsphosted/vsbaires
    - This is my website: http://vsbaires.com

    Editing the form, I clicked in "embed code" and then "source". Inside, there's something that says:
    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://submit.jotformz.com/submit/50208626640652/" method="post" name="form_50208626640652" id="50208626640652" accept-charset="utf-8">

    I copied the url after "action=" but it doesn't work. When I tried to register my email, it redirects to JotForm site that says "error" and shows something like: "FORM ID=empty | FORM LINK=thelink"


    I need help, indeed. Thanks for your time.

    I think getting the Jotform action URL and placing it into the plugin is correct. But before that  will work, I think you need to change your Jotform Email Field Name to match it with the Email Field Name of the plugin.

    Would you mind giving us a temporary admin login so we can check and try it to your website? Just to make it a quick. We can give you the instructions afterward.

    Hey, thanks for the quick reply.

    So the action URL would be http://submit.jotformz.com/submit/50208626640652

    Can you please explain me what you mean about changing the email field name? I thought it match with the plugin.

    I'll attach a screen of the plugin's settings. Here's the form http://www.jotformz.com/nsphosted/vsbaires

    I'm sorry, but I have just tried this and it seems not possible to use the action URL of the form into the plugin. I've tried looking for a way to accomplish this, but can't find any.

    You may consider looking for another plugin that allows you to add embed codes.
