Contact Form 7
Open a contact 7 form from a button click. (1 post)

    I have a client who wants a downloads page with several different downloadable items on it. They want it to behave in such a way that when the user clicks the "download" button for a particular item it opens a form to collect the users details in a LightBox style popup, then when they submit it takes them to the download. Since I am using Contact Form 7 for the actual Contact Us page I thought I'd try to use it for this.

    I have created a new page with it's own template that contains little more than the form and a title. I can call this from a link in such a way that it is shown in a jQuery LightBox style popup, which also means I can pass details of the file to be downloaded in the http request.

    So to my question...
    I now need to use the info in the http request to get the Contact 7 form to forward the user on to the download after submission. Is this possible? I'd prefer not to have to create a form for each downloadable so am looking for a dynamic solution that will work with one form.

    Thanks in advance.
