How can I populate a form field with a GET param passed in the URL of the page ?

    Hi,

    I'd like to be able to do this :

    - Click on http://www.mycoolwebsite.com/jobs/?ref=1234566789
    - Arrive on jobs page with awesome Gravity Form and populate the "Referecence" field with "1234567989"

    Is that possible ?

  2. - Edit your form
    - Add a hidden field to your form
    - Edit the hidden field and give it a field label of "Reference"
    - Select the Advanced tab
    - Check the "Allow field to be populated dynamically" checkbox
    - Give it a parameter name of "reference" without the quotes
    - Save your form

    Now if you call your forms page and pass ?reference=XXXXXX to it the hidden field will be dynamically populated with that value.

    For example: http://www.mydomain.com/myform?reference=123456

  5. You would have to post a link to your page so we can see it happening.

  8. Oddly enough it appears "tour=" is a reserved query string parameter on your site, which means you can't use tour as your parameter. Try using something else like "tourid=" and tourid as your parameter that you configure in your form.
