How to Set up Parameter Passing to Wufoo

Are you interested in configuring two locations where Wufoo forms will pull from? For example, let’s say you created a Wufoo form as an IFrame within a Dreamweaver.html page, and the page is called from two different locations. How do you make it work? We’ll explain the process.

  • 1) Log in to your account. Click “Account” in the top right. On the next page, click “API Information.” Locate the field in question. So, for example, if you’ve titled the second location, click on this one. There should be a numerical ID next to it.
  • 2) Create a URL based off of that ID. As an example, if the ID is 5, you want to place “Field5” in the URL. The example below would put Dell in Field5. Remember you have to change the URL to your username as well.

Make sure you remove any default values

To ensure the above steps work, you may need to check the default value if you’ve changed it in Wufoo. Keep in mind that everything will be controlled by the URL, so there’s no need to set the default value in Wufoo. Your final step will be to make this change dynamic so it applies whenever users click on a link to see your form. On any other pages you have, place logic that dynamic changes the URL – so you would change the last word to be the other location that you want to include.
