Russell Jolliffe asked 1 year ago

Hi everyone. I am new to wordpress and formidable forms. I am just playing with a form that has a product dropdown with three options.  I need each of the options to point to its own specific E2PDF template I have made.  Is this possible?  If not, is there another way to do this? I would be so grateful for any help.  I have tried all sorts and all I have achieved is a few headaches! Thanks in advance. Russell.

According to the docs, use this:

[e2pdf-download id="1"]

The ID would be the template ID.

Thank you for responding Bobby. I can make a simple form that posts to an E2PDF template (eg name, email, Phone number) and it works great. I can't get my head around the Formidable forms product dropdown. Does each of the three dropdown products have its own unique ID of some sort.

My product dropdown menus has an ID of '77' but I can't see individual IDs for the three options. I suspect I'm being stupid, but I just can't work it out sorry.

You need to generate this PDF from a form action I'm assuming. Is it expected to end up in email or is it in a message, or is there a redirect to URL?
