    I’ve got a website that has 4 menu choices, I’d like the form to reflect these choices when these links are clicked on, so it can pre fill a field, does this form support this?
    Thanks

  • Hi Leona, can you provide an example of what you are trying to achieve?

    Thank you

    Ok, I have a page with 4 buttons.
    These button would pass query parameters to the contact page, eg.
    contact-form/?campaign=1 (or some value that can resolve to the form option)
    Then in the form I’d have 4 options, which would be auto selected via this query parameter.
    EG.
    <option value="1" <? if ($_REQUEST['campaign'] == 1){ $echo " selected"; } ?> > campaign 1</option>

    Hi, please check the following documentation. Let me know if this helps you.

    One more question, are these fields customisable, it appears in the docs that these are fixed fields, ie name, address, etc, but if I wanted ‘campaign’ can I have that, the docs are not clear here.

    Hi Loena, carry out a test and add a custom field and see if it can be done? I have not tested this feature myself.

    Ok I’m reading the docs but I’m not ‘getting it’
    So the docs read
    Version 4.x and newer:
    [form number]tag=[option number] (checked)
    Example: form 3 using extra field 7 for radio (select option 2, no)
    (Do you like Onions? yes, no)
    ?&3tag=2 (no) will be selected

    So what do I put in the ‘Select Options’?
    I have 4 options
    1,’2 Cycles Per Hour’
    2,’4 Cycles Per Hour’
    3,’6 Cycles Per Hour’
    4,’1 Cycles Per Day’
    So I’d do /contact-us/?hire=1
    Would select ‘2 Cycles Per Hour’
    I just can’t see how I can make that happen from the options.

    Arr, ok got it working, I had missed that I needed the form number, and the docs confused me a little.
    I do think the docs need a little work, they’re not clear, took me a while to work it out.
    It also works with ‘Selects’ that should be mentioned.
    So I would add a ‘Select’ docs example eg.

    For Forum number 1, with 4 fruit options,
    Create a new field, select ‘Select’ from Type.
    Give the field a tag name, eg fruits, add a form label of your choice.
    Add the options, eg
    Apples
    Bananas
    Oranges
    Pears

    The url has the following parameters, (ignoring the brackets)
    ?[formNumber][tagName]=[optionNumber]

    So to preselect Bananas, from the first form, use the following url parameters
    ?1fruits=2

    Hi Leona, I am glad you got it working. Sorry about the confusion in the documentation. The plugin developer will investigate further your request about the documentation.

    Regards
