Is there a way to target a remote form action page with pro forms without using the webhook feature?
I need my form action page to target a 3rd party url action page. I tried using a webhook passing all the form data values but it’s not working and I don’t have access to the 3rd party action page.
I want to be able to hit submit and have the browser redirect to this action page passing the values. I realize that I can do this with a custom form in code widget but I also want to record submissions and have form validation on my end.
I am new to webhooks am assuming sending data to a form action page via webhook is different then just using a standard form post right?
How do you want to pass the data? If it’s not sensetive, you can just add query params to the URL like
your-url.com/?firstname=John&lastname=Doe&age=35. This way you could get this data easily using PHP in the new page. (PHP: $_GET - Manual). To do this, just redirect to your desired page and use variables to build the url, for example:
Hope that helps
Thanks for taking the time to respond however I don’t have access to the remote action page as it’s not coded by me if I pass the URL parameters on the URL string is that essentially the same as submitting a form to that page?
I’m not sure if the page is set up look for URL parameters unless that’s essentially what a form post is?
If I create the form in the HTML element using standard html I can set the form action target page and it works perfectly I just need to know how to post my bricks form to a remote action page it seems like this should be a setting such as post action but I don’t think it’s that simple.
