Can't populate field with querystring?

  1. Hi!
    I'm developing a WordPress site locally and I'm having some issues with the autopopulating feature.
    I have recently bought a Whois plugin for checking domain names and this plugin supports custom links for registering the available domain name if needed.

    I've allowed one field to be populated dynamically and named the parameter "domain_name".
    In my WHOIS plugin, I changed the registering link to "http://localhost/divent/?page_id=1048/?domain_name={domain}" which results in the following link "http://localhost/divent/?page_id=1048/?domain_name=domain.com" (when using "domain.com" as the preferred domain).

    My field shows up empty though and I can't see what I've done wrong?

    My form is a multipage form and the field that I'm trying to populate is a regular text field on the first page.

    Any thoughts?

  2. Figured it out...
    I updated the links to not include the "/" after the page_id, ex. "http://localhost/divent/?page_id=1048?domain_name=domain.com" and I'm back on track again.
