Merge tags on confirmation web page

  1. Hi

    Please could you tell me if it is possible to achieve the following:

    We have a thank you page set up at: http://www.apsu.com/meraki-registered/

    Once a user has submitted their form, we want their First Name to be populated into the thank you page (where it currently says Steve).

    Is this possible? Thanks.

    Depends... If that is a confirmation message controlled by Gravity Forms in Confirmations, then it isn't a problem to include a merge tag to display such a value. If it isn't a Confirmation message then you are redirecting to this page, and will need to pass the data using a Query string, and pull that information yourself into the page using PHP.

  3. Thanks David. To clarify:

    In 'Confirmations', I have selected the web page.

    On this web page, I want to display the message: Congratulations [first name]

    Do you have any idea what code I could use to generate this based on what the user had entered in the form?

    You would have to use full URL redirect, and include query strings in your URL.

    So http://sitename.com/page2?fname={Name:1}

    And then on the receiving page, you would have to be able to grab fname and display it.
