Retrieve Query Strings on WordPress success page

  1. Hi,

    I need some help! I don't understand how to use the Query Strings.

    I want Gravity Forms to redirect to a WordPress page and add a query string like ?name=Victor so that I can print something like "Thank you for your submission Victor!". How can I catch the my passed variable "name"? I've tried $_POST["name"] and get_query_variable("name") with no luck.

    Thanks in advance!

    Best regards

  2. You would do this using the PHP $_GET function which is how you would display any query string using PHP.

    For example

    <?php echo $_GET["name"]; ?>

  3. Aha!

    I'm still not getting anything. Shouldn't I see the Query String in the URL I'm getting redirected to, like mysite.com/success?name=victor ? Because I'm not..

  4. If you aren't seeing success?name=victor in the query string in your browser address bar, then you did not setup the confirmation redirect correctly.

  5. I ain't seeing it.. But when I tried to redirect to a regular .php file it works!

    But I want to redirect to one of my WordPress pages (with a custom template).. How can I do that!?

  6. There are 3 options for the Confirmation:

    - Text
    - Page
    - Redirect

    Only "Redirect" has an option to pass query string values. If you are using "Page", that option isn't available. You have to choose Redirect.

    Then you enter the FULL URL permalink to the page you want to redirect to, and use the optional query string builder to build your query string.
