    Submitting form data to Database

    Asked by wasca on April 26, 2012 at 03:10 AM

    Hi Guys

    I'd like to submit my form data to a mysql data page using the method outlined on this page.

    http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-or-update-form-submissions-to-your-MySQL-database-using-PHP

    I have also followed this guide http://www.jotform.com/help/51-How-to-Post-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page

    However I dont want to redirect the user to another page when they submit the survey. I just want to use the "Thank You message" option in the wizard.

    Is there a way I can submit the data to my database and just have a custom "Thank You message" display where the survey was once shown?

    Hi,

    If you look at it, the default Thank You page is also another page similar to the custom one.

    What I am trying to say is, you can still show your own Thank You page when redirected. The submitter/user does not have to know that the redirection was actually meant to capture the data to your database. All they will be seeing is a Thank You page.

    Hope this help in your inquiry. Thanks.
