    Hi I'm trying to pass the values from the form to the thank you page using POST, so far I was able to use them creating variables in PHP, put the problem is that some characters like ä, ü, etc. are not passed correctly. I tried changing the values in the form builder using "ä" instead of ä for example but that doesn't work.


    Thank you!

    Hi, thanks for the quick reply.

    The form itself works fine, I'm able to add special characters in both Labels and values. The problem is when I use the POST function to pass the data to a php page, I get for example this (see value called [ichentscheide], this should be "Die Kammer für Wirschaftstreuhänder"):screenshot

    Thank you!
