WordPress-to-lead for Salesforce CRM
[resolved] Query re: URL parameter to form (5 posts)

    Hi there,

    I have been using the WordPress-to-Lead plugin for the last few weeks on a site I'm working with, and it's fantastic! So thanks a million for all the devs who've worked on it, it saves so much time.

    I've been playing with it though, and wanted to see if the following is possible.

    We have a form set up which is working. We had our lead source being set to %URL% so that it would fill in the page the lead came from. However, as some of our website url's are SEO'ed or have added parameters (eg, appended tags from Google) it is cropping them at 40 characters as per the limits to a picklist from Salesforce.

    However, we add a lot of parameters to our clicks from advertising partners and even between pages, so I was trying to see if there's a way I can put the page info, ie htttp://url.com/page/?var1=xxx&var2=yyy , into one of the other fields?

    I tried to see if it could be put into another field, that won't have the restriction? I tried to put the %URL% field against the URL field in the fields of WordPress-to-lead, but this just filled it in at http://%URL

    Is there any way I can do this?

    Thanks!

    Jamie

    The %URL% tag in lead source is an imperfect solution at best.

    If you need real lead analytics, stay tuned for v2.1 which features integration with a 3rd party service that'll give you this data and much more.

    Great, I look forward to it! Will really help us measure things a lot better from web -> wordpress -> salesforce.

    Cheers!

    2.3.2 now supports setting field values via a filter.

    e.g.
    You can now use a custom URL field for this:
