Dynamically populate checkbox

  1. I'm trying to dynamically populate a form, I've ticked the box and using donate_who and then the link is http://www.world-outreach.com/donate/?donate_who=missionary but the form is not populating - any ideas?

    And you gave your parameter name to be donate_who? You might also need to enable values and make sure the value of that field is missionary to accomplish what you want.

  3. That worked great thanks! With values enabled and the right parameter name it worked a treat.
    Is it possible to link together selections and how would I do that as the form uses a checkbox before giving donation options so I also need to dynamically populate that in the same link.

    Can you walk me through that a bit more? I'm not sure I understand.

  5. So I would like to dynamically populate a checkbox field first to filter by projects and then dynamically populate a dropdown field but all from the same link so using some sort of AND function. Ie the link is to donate to projects but that donation field is only shown if the projects checkbox is first selected. Do I just add AND so eg ?what=ProjectsAND?who=Person

    It is still hard to tell exactly what you are hoping to accomplish from what you've written, but if you are using query strings, you can populate many things by separating using the ampersand &.

    field1=value1&field2=value2
