Embed Url problem with PayPal Addon

    I use {embed_url} in my form notification which should, I think, embed the URL of the page where the form is filled out. However, when I started using the PayPal addon the URL it returns is now this:
    http://getridofit.com/?page=gf_paypal_ipn

    Is there something I am doing wrong? Thanks.

  2. Where are you using the {embed_url} merge code? In which field? Or are you outputting it in the notification message body? That URL is your PayPal IPN URL and is used for PayPal communication so it shouldn't be displayed. Can you provide more details?

    I use the {embed_URL} merge code in my notification message body to tell me where the form was filled out. (I use the same form on a bunch of pages).

  4. I know what the issue is. Notifications are set to be triggered when payment is received, which means the URL it's receiving is the IPN URL because that is what is triggering the notification to be sent. It makes sense because of how it executes. We will have to take a look and see how to correct this. Right now there is no solution, we'll have to take a look and make changes to the plugin itself.

    I was able to work around this pretty easily. I added a field to the form, made the default value {embed_url} and made it admin only. Then i use the merge code for that field in my notification.

  7. Yea, that would be the best work around. We are going to look at it and update it in the next release. It's getting the embed_url dynamically each time when really after the fact it can get it from the entry data.
