I'm new to form building, so please forgive my newbieness ;-)

Is there a way to capture the URL of the page that showed the form? For example, if the form is shown on 3 different pages, how can I capture the URL in a field of the form? Is this possible with Web Form Builder Lite?

Also, is there a guide other than the Help menu item?

Thanks!

Hiya Cathy,

The Help Menu is the main guide for the program, but feel free to ask questions here and there are articles you can check out too here:

On the question about knowing which page that's easy. Add a hidden field to your form. Needs to be a separate form for each page so just take the form you have and save it with three different names (open the program, load the form and save it adding something to do with the page it will be on so you know which file is which). Now add a hidden field which you can find more info about here as I already typed it for someone else :P

Hope that helps and let us know if you need further assistance and I'm sure someone around here will be able to help. :)

Jo Ann,

Thank you so much for your help! I think the info on the old thread you shared should do what I need. I'll try it out and post again.

Gratefully,
Cathy

Update for Jo Ann,

The code in the linked thread was helpful. Although it doesn't seem to provide the full URL it at least gives me more than I had before. So for now it will work. Thanks a bunch to you and Eric!

You're quite welcome,

Also you can call that field anything you like so you can give it a basic name in the label the full URL in the Value. Something like:

label: page-linked-from
value: http://yourdomainhere.com/page.html
