Hey Fellow Warrios - I need some HTML help!
I've tried Google and had a tough time...

Heres the situation...

I need information to be input on one page, and carried to the next.

For example,

PAGE 1
User inputs their name and email into user forms

PAGE 2
That information appears on the forms

Is it as simple as using Aweber tags to recall the info?? I was hoping for a more efficient way...

Regardless, I'm thankful for any help!

    Hi Ryan. Can you give a few more details about what you are attempting? For instance are you trying to take data that was submitted in an AWeber form on page 1 and send it to an HTML form on page 2, or are you trying to take data from a standard html form on page 1 and send to page 2 for integration into either another html form or to finish the process on AWeber.

    Also, are you managing your own website/server, and are you hand coding the pages or using something like WordPress?

    It all makes a difference. And as I'm sure you are aware, regarding web forms, there are numerous ways to 'skin a cat' (figuratively speaking of course).

    Let me know, and I'll try to give you some pointers.

      Hey Matt,

      I already have that type of code in action - Im looking for something that works a little more behind the scenes, please check out my example that I just posted - thanks!!

          Ryan, I checked the links you provided. Unfortunately the second link refreshes back to a default page not page 2. I'm sure that's part of their programming.

          At any rate, what they are using is a standard HTML form that is posting the data to (Default.aspx in this case) which is processing the data and then likely passing that data on to your second link (Page2.aspx)

          I assume that your host is giving you access to some sort of scripting function/language, like CGI, PHP or ASP. They make it easy to do what you want. I can help with the code for whichever you might be using. Personally I like PHP and have used it most.

          I have another question. Because you mentioned AWeber, I wonder what your process flow is. I assume at some point along the flow you want to pass the Name/Email pair to AWeber, (at what point?) and also use additional info for shipping or billing purposes? If so, will you be storing that data or transmitting it to another source for processing... ah, so many cats to deal with..

            Haha, too many cats, Fullsail!

            What my first intuition was with Aweber, is as follows...

            Have the initial Aweber submission form on Page 1


            -----PAGE 1 -------
            Blah Blah - Make $5000

            Name-
            Email-
            Phone-
            ------------
            ------PAGE 2--------
            Enter you CC info below to purchase for $27 blah blah, super sweet product -

            Name- php request from the address bar?
            Email- ""
            Phone- ""
            CC Info-
            Exp Date -


            OR

            Have Name, Email and Phone 'invisible' but still recalled from the Aweber submission on PAGE 2 - thus the information is still there for the CC verification, but its behind the scenes...?! Arrrrg!!!

            I just dont think it's the most practical method though...

            If you think you could make that type of code work out, I would be more than happy to hire you as a freelancer - lets talk Dont know if I mentioned this yet - I'm using Authorize.net to process transactions...

              Ryan,
              I'd be happy to freelance for you if you need. Before we do that though, I wonder if you've seen/tried this info on AWeber's site:

              aweber.com/faq/questions/198/How+Do+I+Display+Subscribers'+Names+or+Email+Addre sses+On+My+Thank+You+Page%3F

              (Sorry, I couldn't make it a link because I don't have the required number of posts)

              Unless AWeber's TOS prohibits it, you could actually make the 'Thank You' page any page you want (your page 2).
              I'm pretty sure that this should work for you, unless you don't have control over the coding of the 'Thank You' page...

              Their instructions are pretty straight forward, and would provide you with the data that you need.

              If that doesn't seem to work for you, you can reply back, or PM me and we'll get it sorted out.

              Cheers!

    Fullsails,

    Thank you! Not only are there numerous ways to skin a cat, but numerous cats to skin! Html is a beast, but I figure that I should become more proficient instead of wasting valueable time depending on freelancers...

    This particular task is being coded in html...No use of Wordpress...
    Also, I'm not managing my own server I do have an SSL cert and dedicated IP, but thats it...

    The best example would be to look at most Biz Opp products, such as this one

    Code:
     https://www.exclusivecashsecrets.com/c/BDY454LK/Default.aspx?itm=RDCA22&s1=43443&s2=794&s3=116971&clickid=09_10299406_a2d9e480-8e40-4fa4-aef9-529133652732&vn=mac138288
    Which transfers the data to this page

    Code:
    https://www.exclusivecashsecrets.com/c/BDY454LK/Page2.aspx
    So the page is carrying the user data to the next page where the CC submit exists...

    Any form method will do that... Cookies will also do that... And PHP coding can take advantage of both...

    Although, try to stay away from cookies.
    You really don't want to be putting someones private info in a cookie, even if it is just a name and email. Cookies are just not to be trusted.

      I would definitely recommend learning a little PHP. Ad it's surprising how little you do need to learn. You can simply add php code into your standard html page (change the extension from .html to .php) by wrapping your php code with <?php at the start and ?> at the end (see example below)
      It's very easy to pass variables across pages with PHP and there are free PHP scripts for just about anything you can think from simple operations to complete applications


      example


      To pass data without displaying in the URL
      Let's say this is your form field code on "form.php"



      <?php
      <form action="thankyou.php" method="post">
      <input type="text" size="25" name="name
      <input type="text" size="25" name="email"
      /form>
      ?>


      These two input boxes allow users to enter information as a standard html form.


      <?php
      # GRAB THE VARIABLES FROM THE FORM
      $name = $_POST['name'];
      $email = $_POST['email'];
      ?>
      The above code is in "thankyou.php" and grabs the variables from the previous form @ "form.php"
