Unable to retrieve custom field data from the HTML form
  • Hi

    I have recently added some custom fields to a form (Last Name, Country) but the data isn't syncing properly when the users fill in the form - I can get the First Name and E-mail just fine, but not the custom ones.

    This is what I have in the list:

    Surname [Surname,fallback=] Country [Country,fallback=]

    I have adapted the "Subscribe via AJAX" template available in the API documentation, so I will just insert my changes here.

    This is what I have in my PHP file:

    //POST variables $name = $_POST['name']; $surname = $_POST['surname']; $email = $_POST['email']; $country = $_POST['country'];

    //subscribe $postdata = http_build_query( array( 'name' => $name, 'surname' => $surname, 'email' => $email, 'country' => $country, 'list' => $sendy_list, 'boolean' => 'true' ) );

    This is my HTML form:

    <div class="field-container" style="margin-top: 20px;"> <label for="subscriber-surname" style="line-height: 155%;">Apelido</label><br/> <input type="text" name="surname" id="subscriber-surname" placeholder="Apelido" /> </div> <div class="field-container" style="margin-top: 20px;"> <label for="subscriber-country" style="line-height: 155%;">PaĆ­s</label><br/> <select name="country" id="subscriber-country"> <option value="Portugal" selected>Portugal</option> <option value="Brasil">Brasil</option> <option value="Palop">PALOP</option> <option value="Outro">Outro</option> </select> </div>

    And this is my JavaScript file:

    var jQueryform = jQuery(this), name = jQueryform.find('input[name="name"]').val(), surname = jQueryform.find('input[name="surname"]').val(), email = jQueryform.find('input[name="email"]').val(), country = jQueryform.find('select[name="country"]').val(), url = jQueryform.attr('action');, {name:name, surname:surname, email:email, country:country},

    I believe this is a problem of something being in a different case when it shouldn't, but I can't figure out what I need to change.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much.

    Cheers Bruno

    //subscribe $postdata = http_build_query( array( 'name' => $name, 'surname' => $surname, 'email' => $email, 'country' => $country, 'list' => $sendy_list, 'boolean' => 'true' ) );

    The 'surname' and 'country' in the above line should be 'Surname' and 'Country' respectively as your custom field was created as:


    Your PHP code should match the 'case' of your custom fields.


    Best regards,

  • Hi Ben
