Call Interspire SendStudio form from GF. How?

  1. Hi

    I have Interspire SendStudio running on my webserver and wanted to know how I could integrate their generated form with GF.
    How can I call that POST HTML code once the user hits Submit? I assume it is done in the Confirmation part of the form (redirect).

    I need to fill this form with data from GF and POST it to SendStudio:

    <br />
    <form method="post" action="http://www.sonopathy.com/sendstudio/form.php?form=9" id="frmSS9" onSubmit="return CheckForm9(this);"><br />
    	<table border="0" width=196 cellpadding="2" align="left" class="myForm" style='table-layout:fixed'><br />
    		<tr><br />
    			<td><span class="required">*</span>�First Name:</td><br />
    		</tr><tr><br />
    			<td><input type="text" name="CustomFields[1]" id="CustomFields_1_9" value="" size='20' maxlength='40'></td><br />
    		</tr><tr><br />
    			<td><span class="required">*</span>�Your email address:</td><br />
    		</tr><tr><br />
    			<td><input type="text" name="email" value=""></td><br />
    		</tr><br />
    		<input type="hidden" name="format" value="h"><br />
    		<tr><br />
    			<td><br />
    				<input type="submit" value="Subscribe" align="left"><br />
    			</td><br />
    		</tr><br />
    	</table><br />
    </form></p>
    <p>

    Can anybody enlighten me? Thank you. It is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Thomas

  2. You can use the post submission hook to send the data to Interspire SendStudio. You would need to have knowledge of PHP and WordPress API hooks in order to accomplish this...

  3. Sounds like someone must have done that before and there should be somewhere some sample code?
    How do I get my hands on some sample code?
    Thanks

  4. Sounds like you may need to pay a developer for this.

  5. While it's possible, i'm not aware of anyone who has integrated it with SendStudio... but maybe someone can chime in with a code snippet if they have.

    We have just released 2 Add-Ons for MailChimp and Campaign Monitor which are hosted services that do the same thing SendStudio does.

  6. I was not referring to a SendStudio implementation. Just referring to a code snippet where someone used the post-submission hook and the WP hook for something similar. If I have some sample code, I'll work it out and can post my implementation here if there is an interest.

  7. is the MailChimp using the above mentioned Post Submission hook and API hooks? If yes, I can have a look at that code and modify it for SendStudio/EmailMarketer

  8. Hi Thomas,
    I think I might be a similar situation, where I have an existing form defined as follows:

    <form name="campus_visit" id="campusID" action="<? echo $formhandlerpath; ?>" method="POST" onsubmit="return qasVerify( true );">

    where there is javascript processing done upon a submit click, and if successful, it pasts the page action onto another .php page.

    Were you able to get a workaround solution for this? Seems like we are trying to do the same thing in Gravity Form, where we are customizing the button's action and onsubmit features.

    Thanks,
    Ricky

  9. There are hooks for both the form tag as well as the submit button, but i'm not sure how you can use this to integrate with interspire. You would have to use the post submission hook to add the email to interspire AFTER the form is submitted, which is exactly what the MailChimp and Campaign Monitor add-ons do.

    Here is an example of the gform_form_tag hook which shows how to change the form action:

    add_filter("gform_form_tag", "form_tag", 10, 2);
    function form_tag($form_tag, $form){
    $form_tag = preg_replace("|action='(.*?)'|", "action='custom_handler.php'", $form_tag);
    return $form_tag;
    }

    Here is an example of the gform_submit_button hook:

    add_filter("gform_submit_button", "form_submit_button", 10, 2);
    function form_submit_button($button, $form){
    return "<button class='button' id='gform_submit_button_{$form["id"]}'><span>Submit</span></button>";
    }

    Hi,
    any news on this Interspire integration with Gravity Forms? I add my vote fir this.

    by the way I saw this plugin: http://affiliateplex.com/tools/wp-iem-wordpress-plugin/

    which shows it is possible to link up WordPress forms with Interspire.

    thanks

    Any plans to or suggestions on how to manually do it?
    I found somewhere that was talking about how to add an action on the submit button ... So if values & variables match maybe it would work? Does that sound likely?

  14. There are no plans that I know of. To pull it off manually, the best advice comes from Carl Hancock previously in this topic: http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/call-interspire-sendstudio-form-from-gf-how#post-11118
