Fast Secure Contact Form Query String with Multiple Checkboxes (3 posts)

    Great plugin but I've a little problem which is probably easily resolved by someone more technically minded than me.

    I'm trying to pass data from one form on my website to another. Everything works fine except a multi checkbox selection, where I'm guessing I'm not setting the mapping correctly. In the "Query string fields to rename" field I'm using;

    ex_field7_1=2ex_field7_1
    ex_field7_2=2ex_field7_2
    ex_field7_3=2ex_field7_3 etc

    but the string that's arriving at the destination page includes:

    &ex_field7=+%2A+Flotilla+%2A+Course&

    (where Flotilla and Course are in this example the two selected options). All the other fields I'm passing are going across fine.

    I believe it needs to be something like &2ex_field_2=1&2ex_field_3=1& but how do I achieve this?

    You can see the initial form here: http://www.sailingchoices.com/sailing-holiday-types/bareboat-yacht-charter/ - it's on the sidebar (Get a quote in the Get in touch section).

    Hope there's a simple answer - this is about at the limit of my technical capabilities!

    This may not be possible, it is a known issue. You cannot chain multiple forms together when there are many field types. Maybe tn version 4.0? I do not know, it needs more review.

    Thanks Mike. Apart from the 3 standard fields, I'm only passing 3 extra fields that are all text, and this one.

    I could change the checkbox multiple field to be a select multiple, or at a stretch even radio buttons. Am I likely to have the same problem with these?
