Can't Get Query String to Work

  1. I can't seem to get my query strings to work. I've got a product form with a drop down list of products. The user may select one item and hit submit. I then want a new form to open with the selected item passed from the first page to the second, along with new information fields to be completed. I have an Admin Label of "item" set on the first form. I've set the Confirmation to redirect to the second page and a Redirect Query String of item={item:3}.

    On the second form, I have a duplicate product field set. Under the advanced tab I have checked Allow Field to be Populated Dynamically and a Parameter Name of "item."

    Whenever I select an item on the first field, I get the same page reloaded with an error saying there was a problem with my submission... Except if I choose the last item in the drop down. If I choose and submit that one, I get redirected to a page with a 404 error. It's redirecting me to the second form page, bit its appending this to the URL: Even if I fix the URL it redirects to the second form, but the product data isn't passed and showing in the form.

    What am I doing wrong?

  2. Update: Got part of the problem corrected. The spaces and odd characters before the appended URL add-on was apparently caused by hidden odd characters in the domain listed on the redirect field. I cut and pasted the domain in, and the odd characters weren't visible, but I found them and fixed it.

    Now, the redirect only works if the last item in the drop down is selected. Anything else and the form just redirects back to form 1 and throws an error message.

  3. Do you have a link to your form?

  4. Yes. for the order form and for the payment form.

  5. Thanks, can you actually fill out a priority support request form and include a WP admin login for me so we can take a closer look at the two form setups? It will be much easier for the both of us in troubleshooting/corresponding.
