Forms: 3rd-Party Dynamic Fields

Description

Using pre-configured placeholders like ##UID##, ##REFERER##, or ##SITEURL##, add dynamic fields to the normally map-only or static-only Forms: 3rdparty Integration plugin.

Installation

  1. Unzip, upload plugin folder to your plugins directory (/wp-content/plugins/)
  2. Make sure Contact Form 7 or Gravity Forms is installed
  3. Make sure Forms: 3rdparty Integration is installed
  4. Activate plugin
  5. Go to new admin subpage “3rdparty Services” under the CF7 “Contact” menu or Gravity Forms “Forms” menu and configure services + field mapping.
  6. Configure the new “Dynamic Fields” section to optionally attach the dynamic values to the notification messaging (and how)
  7. Using the additional collapsed metabox for examples, add dynamic placeholders as “static values” to the service mapping (check ‘Is Value?’ column). Double-click examples to populate each textbox after selecting it.

How do I add / configure a service?

See “base plugin” Forms: 3rdparty Integration.

Expand the box “Dynamic Placeholder Examples” below the ‘save’ button for allowed dynamic fields.

Additionally, you’ll need to check the ‘Is Value?’ column.

How do I add GET parameters to my service post?

Use the placeholder ##GET:{urlparam}## as the static value, which will attach the value XYZ from the url in ?urlparam=XYZ.

How do I add COOKIE parameters to my service post?

Use the placeholder ##COOKIE:{hamburgler}## as the static value, which will attach the value XYZ from the cookie named hamburgler.

What else can I attach?

These are also listed within the plugin settings under the “[?] Dynamic Placeholder Examples” metabox — double click each option for automatic entry. Live “example previews” are also shown for each within the metabox.
