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

    Asked 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:
    - This is my website:

    Editing the form, I clicked in "embed code" and then "source". Inside, there's something that says:
    <form class="jotform-form" action="" 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

    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

    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.
