Passing variable from form to another WP page
December 2, 2012

Hello :) Great plugin, love it. However I'm very new to programming, hence this post. So prepare yourselves for THE stupid question. I have searched through the forums and tried to check FAQ, but without any luck. Tried what was mentioned here too:

So really hope you can help me guys or girls.

I'm having a bit of a struggle with passing variables to another landing page. I WP set up locally in a wampserver, \\\"Use custom input field NAMES & ID's\\\" is checked in the plugin and so is Enable alternative success page (redirect).

Place of form: localhost
Place of redirect:  localhost/strandlove-landingsside/

It seems the landing page can't manage to fetch the data from the form correctly. This is how my-functions looks like:


### example: changes redirection address based on user input field

if ( $setting == \\\"redirection\\\" ){

### note: '$$$mypick' references the ID of the HTML element and has been assigned
### to the drop down field in the form configuration, with [id:mypick] !

$var_name = $cformsdata['data'][$cformsdata['data']['$$$your_name']];

if ( $var_name == 'abc' )
return 'http://localhost/strandlove-landingsside/?your_name=$var_name';



And this in the destination page (which is an own template assigned to the page in WP admin): For the sake of testing, the form consist of only one textfield, which is: Ditt navn[id:your_name]

Welcome .

(placed outside the_loop).

However, the only output is: \\\"Welcome .\\\" Been struggling for a couple of hours with this, and I can't seem to sort it out. Anyone can pinpoint me in the right direction, please?

Appreciating all help I can get. Thank you

Just a correction for the bottom part of the first post:

This code is placed outside the loop in the template file (redirect destination):  Welcome <?php echo $_POST["your_name"]; ?>.<br>
