    Save and Continue Later on Wordpress

    Asked by akisg on February 09, 2016 at 04:43 PM

    I 'm trying to embed a form on my Wordpress site and use save & continue functionality.

    I have an initial form that the user is entering his email address and I am sending them a link e.g. www.mysite.com/form?session={email}

    The problem is the data the user is entering are not retrieved.

    I tried embedding the form through the following code but still nothing.

    <script type="text/javascript">document.write(" <script type=\"text/javascript\" src=\"http://form.jotformeu.com/jsform/33023560076345" + window.location.search + "\"></" +"script> ");</script> 

    I think the problem is that the url is written www.mysite.com/form/?session={email} instead of www.mysite.com/form?session={email} due to wordpress permalink settings which probably causes the problem.

    How can i solve this problem?

    Thx

    and problem style size session

    May I ask the URL of your website so we may further investigate? The URL should be used as www.mysite.com/form?session={email} as seen in this guide: Save forms and continue later It is possible that the data is not being caught because of this.

    You may also try using the iFrame embed code to embed the form to your wordpress: Getting the iFrame embed code

    We will wait for your reply.

    Hi, 

    unfortunately the website is still offline.

    I managed to remove the dash from the url so my url looks like www.mysite.com/form?session={email}

    What is the script i need to embed in my wordpress page to enable save & continue functionality?

    Do i need to add the script on an external plugin or I can add it just on the page source?

    thx

    Make sure the enable the autofill feature: http://www.jotform.com/help/227-How-to-Enable-Auto-Fill-Feature

    Then, I would recommend you to embed the form with the Iframe code: http://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    Before you embed the code, paste it in a text editor like WordPad, you will notice two part of codes, only copy and embed the Iframe part in your webpage, example:

    Hi again,

    So i did some testing.

    I haven't activated the Auto-fill feature cause it's not what I m looking for. I wanted the save & continue functionality with the  ?session which i used in my old site.

    I tried the Javascript and it didnt work.

    Tried the Wordpress also didn't work.

    Tried the iframe part as you told me and it didn't work and also the form was showing correctly as the page didnt resize and half the form wasn't showing.

    Finally i tried the whole iframe script with the javascript part and it works!! So i guess i 'll keep this one! But why you told me to remove the last part? It it conflicting with something else?

     

    Thanks anyway as problem is probably solved!

    I am glad to know that you have resolved the issue. On behalf of my colleague, you are most welcome. Sometimes, some scripts in websites can have conflicts with the scripts in jotform. Using the iframe code prevents any conflict from occurring.

    Feel free to contact us again if you have any other concerns.
