Hello Folks

I’m running a simple cms application on my website that allows users to add their products. Each product has a unique reference number.

I have also used: easyphpcontactform . com as a contact form. I use a simple Javascript so it pops up in a new window.

What I would like to do is add a new form for each product. The idea being that when the user wants more info on a particular product - they click a link which pops-up a form. The form needs to be pre-populated with the product reference number.

I can’t work out how to get the popup to have a pre-populated field with the ref num contained on the product page... any help much appreciated.

I suppose you need to put informations that user filled up in prevoius form. So put all those required values to the $_SESSION variables and then you just put them into fields.:

Code: [ Select ]
print '<input type="text" name="blah_blah" value="'.$_SESSION['blah_blah'].'">';

of course you need session running on that page
Code: [ Select ]

session_name ('name');
  1. session_name ('name');
  2. @session_start();

After submitting the form you can unset those $_SESSION variables
