    That's possible for as long as the page you want the form data to be displayed supports PHP codes (for Joomla platform, make sure that it is possible to embed a PHP code on the page).

    So basically what you need to do first is to enable POST Data in your form. Guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    Then capture the form data by using PHP codes. The field variables e.g. {name} will only work with JotForm so you must write your custom PHP codes to capture the form data.

    Example:

    Candidate Acknowledgement Slip

    Dear <?php echo $_POST['firstname5']; ?>, thank you for applying to be enrolled into BVC.
    Please check our website ( www.bvcbonny.net/enrol ) from Date for Entrance Examination Schedule / Timetable.
    *Note: A copy of this Slip was sent to your email address. 

    **If you are scheduled for Examination, please come with this slip.

    Candidate Exam Number:

     

    Full Name:

    <?php echo $_POST['firstname5']." ". $_POST['middleame']." " .$_POST['surname4']; ?>

    You can continue with the rest of the fields using the following PHP format.

    <?php echo $_POST['firstname5']; ?>

    Where firstname5 is the field name - make sure they're all in lowercase.

    If you need further assistance, do let us know.

    I checked the Thank You page you made on your Joomla site and I noticed that you are still using the {firstname5} variable. The old variables will not work in your customized page. 

     

    You need to use this PHP code <?php echo $_POST['firstname5']; ?> to display the submitted value to your Thank You Page. Please ensure that it is possible to embed a PHP code on the page. You might need to use a plugin to be able to add a PHP code in your Thank You page. You can try the plugin mentioned here: https://www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/use-javascript-or-php-in-a-joomla-article/.

    Hello,

    Post data submissions will only provide the values. On the case of the uploads, it will not provide the link to the image, just the name of the file uploaded.

    You can still however build the link to the image of your form. Simply do this format

    <?php

    echo "http://www.jotform.com/uploads/BVCBonny/".$_POST["formID"]."/".$_POST["submission_id"]."/".$_POST["uploadyour"];

    ?>

     

    If you want this to appear as an image on the page:

    <?php

    $uploadyour = "http://www.jotform.com/uploads/BVCBonny/".$_POST["formID"]."/".$_POST["submission_id"]."/".$_POST["uploadyour"];

    ?>

    <img src="<?php echo $uploadyour; ?>">

     

    Please let us know if you have further questions or in need of assistance.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    I only gave two possible methods,

    1) the echoing of the link to the image

    <?php

    echo "http://www.jotform.com/uploads/BVCBonny/".$_POST["formID"]."/".$_POST["submission_id"]."/".$_POST["uploadyour"];

    ?>

    and 2) placing the image link to a variable and then using that variable as an image source.

    <?php

    $uploadyour = "http://www.jotform.com/uploads/BVCBonny/".$_POST["formID"]."/".$_POST["submission_id"]."/".$_POST["uploadyour"];

    ?>

    <img src="<?php echo $uploadyour; ?>">

     

    Was there any error in the 2nd method? It should always print out the full size of the image since the post data does not produce thumbnail images.

    ========================

    Also, regarding the date post data, this is a sample array of the post:

    ["dateof"]=> array(3) { [0]=> string(1) "1" [1]=> string(7) "January" [2]=> string(4) "2016" }

    So what can be done here is do this 

    $day = $_POST['dateof'][0];
    $month = $_POST['dateof'][1];
    $year = $_POST['dateof'][2];

    It's up to you how you will use the $day, $month, and $year variables, such as <?php echo "$month $day, $year"; ?>

    Please do get back to us for updates.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    We're glad that the solution for the image works.

    Let's simplify the date field issue. Regarding this, the date field is a nested array, which means there is an array within an array. 

    ["dateof"]=> array(3) {
         [0]=> string(1) "1"
         [1]=> string(7) "January"
         [2]=> string(4) "2016"
    }

    You will notice that under the array key 'dateof', there are sub arrays 0, 1, and 2. And based on the values that it resulted, the 0 represents day, 1 represents month, and 2 represents year.

    So in order to call the day, you will have to call:

    $_POST['dateof'][0]; //for day
    $_POST['dateof'][1]; //for month
    $_POST['dateof'][2]; //for year

     

    So you can try doing this to print the day value:

         <?php echo $_POST['dateof'][0]; ?>

    print the month value:

         <?php echo $_POST['dateof'][1]; ?>

    print the year value

         <?php echo $_POST['dateof'][2]; ?>

     

    If these do not yield results, please let us know.

    Thanks.
