Trying to get a form-specific hook to fire

  1. I'm trying to grab the value of a single form field, on a single form, and put it into a remote POST call.

    [php]
    add_action("gform_post_submission_4", "subscribe_textmarks", 10, 2);
    function subscribe_textmarks($entry, $form){
    
    //first, let's grab the phone number from the form, it's field 1
    $phone = get_post($entry["1"]);
    
    //now let's remotely subscribe to textmarks by calling their API via POST
    $response = wp_remote_post('http://help.api2.textmarks.com//Anybody/invite_to_group/', array(
    	'method' => 'POST',
    	'headers' => array(),
    	'body' => array( 'api_key' => 'chrislema_com__72225807', 'tm' => 'WORDPRESS', 'user' => $phone )
        )
    );
    }

    You can see by the initial _4 appended to the hook, I was trying to get this to only fire on a specific form.

    When I put in the value, the form submits, I see the thank you text, but nothing seems to get out to the remote server.

    Am I calling this wrong?

  2. 1. gform_post_submission is deprecated. Please use gform_after_submission instead. Documentation

    2. Can you check the value of $response to see what it contains?

    3. Line 5 looks wrong. The WordPress function get_post is designed to return one post based on the integer value of the post ID. If you're trying to retrieve the phone number from a form entry, you probably want it to look like this (assuming the phone number is field 1 in your form):

    [php]
    $phone = $entry[1];

  3. You rock. I had both issues - the deprecated code, and the incorrect reference for the entry variable. Now it works. Thanks!
