I'm a bit new to this but have this burning curiosity to see if I can figure it out. I've been combing the forums but still don't quite know how to approach my issue and exactly what code or hooks I need.
I want to collect some basic information in one initial sign-up form, and then let my user wander into various other parts of the site. If they decide they want to fill out another form, I would like their previous entry to pre-populate the other forms.
From what I gather, API hooks and PHP are the tools I need. I'm thinking that I need to store the first initial submitted value into a PHP session, and then pre-populate the form using the dynamic fields -- I've already got the hang of making the form fields available to pre-populated from query strings, but I don't know how to do this from PHP.
I think with a bit of handholding I can figure this out AND learn how to do it in future at the same time -- I don't really have budget to hire somebody to do it for me, but if there is anybody out there who is willing to train me on this for a fee I'd love to hear from you.
Otherwise, could I get some help from you, Carl or Alex or anybody else on the team?
