Use Shortcode to assign a Redirect/Confirmation page

  1. I saw this has been requested before:

    http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/can-i-give-the-redirect-page-in-the-shortcode

    Basically, my client has one lead form that they have to duplicate every time just to change the redirect/confirmation page. This is naturally causing a lot of trouble just for this one change. Can the shortcode be used to assign a confirmation page?

  2. Please explain how you would like to use this. Maybe we can come up with a solution. Are you saying you would like the shortcode you embed in your page to support the inclusion of a URL for the confirmation redirect?

    If that is the case, you could always add a hidden field to your form, allow it to be populated dynamically, then populate that field in the shortcode using the method found here:
    http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Using_Dynamic_Population#Shortcode

    Now that you have the URL or at least the changed part of the URL ( you could probably skip the http and the domain name, and just put that together later ) you could change the confirmation redirect to use the value in this field (be sure to include a default value for this field so that there is always a redirect URL even when the value is not pre-populated.) You could change the confirmation URL with the gform_confirmation filter.

    A little bit of code up front would make this much easier for your client, I believe.

  3. Essentially, the client has 12 landing pages (and growing) running the same form with the same fields, except each form goes to a different redirect page once the form is completed and submitted. As it stands, they need to duplicate this form every time they want to embed the form on a page but only want to change the destination of the confirmation page.

    You asked:

    "Are you saying you would like the shortcode you embed in your page to support the inclusion of a URL for the confirmation redirect?"

    Yes, that is exactly it. :)

  4. So I set up a field with the value of 'redirect' and can populate it with the shortcode. My next question is how do I detect the redirect field and then drop that value into the confirmation filter?

    I imagine it would look something like this, but I do not know how to establish the value of $redirect:

    add_filter("gform_confirmation", "custom_confirmation", 10, 4);
    function custom_confirmation($confirmation, $form, $lead, $ajax){
    
     $confirmation = array("redirect" =>$redirect);
    return $confirmation;
    }

  5. You will get $redirect as one of you form field values. What field number is it in your form? If it were field 8, for example, you would do this:

    [php]
    $redirect = $entry[8];

    If that field holds the full URL, that is all you will need to do. If you are just using a slug in the shortcode (which may be easier for your administrators), you might have to built your URL, like this

    [php]
    $redirect = 'http://www.example.com/' . $entry[8];

    Let us know what value your shortcode will hold for 'redirect' and let us know what field number it is, if you still need help. Thank you.
