I want to add two more form fields and append them to the submit with Javascript. How do I tie into the form submission?

Once you add additional field with in the <form> .. </form> tag they will automatically get appended to the form during submit (assuming that you are not manually add the form field to an ajax post/get).

But you may have to modify your php script to process that field (i.e save the field to the db)

  • Is there a way to hijack the form submission with javascript? I've inherited a site with a plugin that uses ioncube to mask some parts of the code. The customer relies on the plugin for lead generation so I dont want to strip it out just do some sort of onclick to piggyback on the submit and append it to the submission. It goes to a transactional email template. – Matthew McLennan Nov 17 '14 at 2:18
