Redirected to page create after form submission (Post features)

    I was wondering if it is possible for us to redirect the user to the page created after form submission? Or at least display the URL - that would be good enough.

    Considering I'm allowing the page to be published soon after the user hit the submit button (or payment successful via PayPal)

  2. You can do this in two different ways.

    1. If you want to redirect directly to the published post, check the "Redirect" button on Confirmation tab of your "Form Settings". For the URL, put your site's URL (http://www.example.com/ or http://www.example.com/wp/ or whatever the WordPress root is.) Then, click the box "Pass Field Data Via Query String" and enter this:
      p={post_id}

      The post_id is available in the "Insert form field" drop down, but just inserting that won't get you much. You need the "p=" at the beginning.

      Now, after form submission, the visitor will be redirected to that URL, and they won't even see the p=anything since WordPress will change the URL based on your permalink settings. This will work fine if you are publishing the post. If you make it a draft or pending, I don't think the post will be public so it won't come up unless you're logged in with permissions.

    2. If you want to display it in the confirmation settings, select a Text confirmation, and add this to your confirmation message:
      <a href="http://www.example.com/?p={post_id}">Here's your story</a>

      The key here again is the merge tag of [post_id}. That will display a link to the post. Your text confirmation might be

      [html]
      "Thanks for submitting your post.  You can view it <a href="http://www.example.com/?p={post_id}">here</a>."

    I think one of those two will work for you.
