Check I am on Confirmation page for text confirmations?

  1. When a user has submitted their data, I have it set to text confirmation.

    Now in my wordpress template I want to detect they are on a confirmation screen - and then grab the entry and show a related text. I know I can do merge-tags but I want to simply check that this is a confirmation? e.g. if($gform_is_confirmation() == true) { show something blah blah }

    I feel I am missing something simple here!

    Can you explain more about what you are doing and why our built-in confirmations text box isn't working for you?

  3. Hi David - thanks for your reply.

    I am trying to save my data to the DB, then I need to take the data from that and build a FORM which I must POST to another website (using javascript onload-> submit) . So the confirmation page needs to be just a form, as hopefully it will be a momentary delay for the user before they get taken on to the payment providers form . (There the data pre-populates their form!).

    I am trying to keep the steps to the minimum you see.

    I have tried using the Page confirmation option of gravity, but I cannot see a way to get the jsut submitted entry ID there? On redirect option I Can get it, but I am not keen to have it in the URL.

    I think I may have to use a session?

    So you see, on the text option , I would ideally like in my wordpress template to check if IS_CONFIRMATION and then not output any HTML but my little form and it auto-rediercts the person to the payment site.

    Hope that makes sense and you can advise me.

    ETA: caps are not shouting by the way :) Also, I think PHP session is only way with redirect to hide the GET variable in the URL, which would mean someone could see how much someone wants to donate . (It is for a charity donation).
