Trouble integrating our form using Lightbox script with PardotAsked by transpay on July 05, 2015 at 04:32 PM
My company uses Pardot as our B2B automation tool to track all fields, and I am trying to embed our form using the lightbox script. I created a form handler from Pardot and have mapped all fields from Jotform and Pardot.
Form handler field mappings on Pardot
However Pardot is not reading any test submissions we submit through the form, and I am wondering if it's because of the missing post URL. From Pardot, we were told to change Post URL from the form's source code.
I'm not really sure how to integrate a lightbox script with Pardot as well as the form tag so that it integrates with Pardot. I am not a developer and my IT team is swamped, so any help I can get from your team would be great. Since I am not a developer, step-by-step instructions would truly be appreciated.
PS - This article was able to help me a little, but I am unsure whether to put the Jotform field names into the brackets or those from my Pardot fields.
If you could help me ASAP, that would be awesome since we are being forced to meet near-impossible deadlines.
Submissions form handler JotForm source POST
This definitely requires hiring a programmer to send the post data using PHP to your HTML page in Pardot, here is a guide that would give your programmer an idea on how to send the data to another page: https://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page
If you have another question, please open a new thread, we will be glad to assist you.
In this case, do you have any solutions for embedding the form? I previously tried to use the entire source code but the page looked very ugly and nothing like the original form.
When it comes to embedding the form, try embedding your form using the iFrame code: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code
When you get it, before embedding the code, paste it in a text editor like Wordpad, you will see two parts, only copy and embed the iFrame part, example:
The iFrame will not conflict with anything on your page, and will display as it shows in the preview mode. Let us know if you need anything else, we will be glad to assist you.
I'm sorry I should have specified, I still want to be able to send the data to Pardot. There is no POST URL in the iframe script, is it safe to just add it?
It's very important to send the data to Pardot. Our IT team is completely tied up and cranky due to this ridiculous project, so if you can help come up with a workaround I'd be very grateful.
I am not able to provide you the exact steps and PHP scripts to make this possible, I could give it a try, but this would take me a lot of time since its complex and needs to be handle by an experienced programmer.
Basically, by enabling the post data, you will be able to send all the data in a variable which will be the array container.
This is done by setting the target URL in the Thank You Page Wizard:
This URL is where your PHP file is located, and it contains the necessary PHP scripting to receive and redirect the information where you want to, which it's Pardot, I guess the article you share is the one that explained how to receive the data.
