    I want to post the results from a form to an external site.

    Asked by Michael Daniel  on February 26, 2016 at 08:33 AM

    Using a Wordpress theme and our site is hosted by Blue Host. I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to post the results from the submission of an appointment form to another website. I also need some hidden fields included and the fields need to follow a special naming convention.

    We have a JOTFORMPRO license but I have no idea if that is a possibility.

    I'm checking your email address mi**@e**a*********.com but I can't find a registered account in our end. Also, I can't seem to find a JotForm form in your website page http://www.ellaparkbridal.com/.

    If you would like to pass the data from a JotForm form to another website, that is possible, but the question is how you would like to receive the data and display it in your end.

    Method 1:

    You can pass the data by prepopulating the URL parameter of the target page. Here's a sample guide about it but in this guide, we're prepopulating the URL parameter of the form itself: http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters 


    Method 2:

    Another way is to pass the submission by send post data and saved it on your external website's MySQL database. Here's a guide about it: http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP. With that, you can easily save the data on your external website and freely display the content with your own terms.


    Method 3:

    If that is too complicated, we do have available reports that you can easily create and embed to your website. Here's the list of reports that you can create based on your submissions: http://www.jotform.com/help/326-How-To-Create-Form-Reports-in-JotForm

    An example of it is the HTML Table Listing report, that will display the actual submissions that you have in your form as a table listing. You can easily get the embed code of it and paste it in your external website.

    I hope that helps.
