    How to use prepopulating fields on my form?

    Asked by antonvalle on April 12, 2016 at 02:02 PM

    Hmm, I can't seem to get this to work when I'm embedding the form. This works: https://form.jotformeu.com/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16

    But embedding this gives me an empty form: https://form.jotformeu.com/jsform/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16

    I'm getting the same for those two links, just, for the second one, use this lin: https://form.jotformeu.com/jsform/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16 without bolded part: jsform.

    So this one: https://form.jotformeu.com/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16

    Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    I'm using this form embedded in a wordpress site. Form is not displayed at all If I use this:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://form.jotformeu.com/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16">


    But it will show (without pre-entered data) if I just use this:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://form.jotformeu.com/jsform/60525206402342??kurssinNimi=Haloo%20media!%20Tehoa%20mediasuhteisiin%2012.4.2016%20klo%209-16">

    Ok, understood now, sorry for a misunderstanding.

    Could you please try to embed your form using iFrame method?

    And your second page should be in PHP. Please check this guide below:


    On the second page, you would then read these POST variables with PHP, and generate your iframe code with those variables.

    You code would look something like this:


    $name = $_POST['name']; 


    <iframe src="//www.jotform.com/form/1234?name=<? echo $name; ?>" height="300px" width="100%"></iframe>

    Get back to us if you need more help.
