I have a question on passing information from a form on my webpage to a form on another webpage that I have no design control over...
Here is the background story...
I am the president of a student club at my university and we are working to develop a way for our visitors to donate money to us through our school's donation page.
Our school's website has a form that allows for people to donate with a credit card, but in order for the money to end up in our hands we need the form to be filled out in a way that may not be so obvious to visitors.
This is what I would like to do...
On our website I can include whatever cgi and forms needed to configure a hyperlink (or any other solution) to connect with the schools form.
What I would like to see when the user submits that information is a link to the school's donation form with it filled out in the way we need.
there are two things that need to be configured on the schools donation form:
1) a select box for the proper category of donation (there are hundreds of options)
2) a text box that contains a string like so "OUR_CLUB_NAME - Donation on behalf of CLUB_MEMBER"
the rest of the information (such as name and credit card information can be filled out on the schools form)
On our site I would like to have a form that simply has one field for a user to enter the CLUB_MEMBER name and a Procede button that moves to the school's donation form with these two categories filled out properly.
I would envision code on our website that creates something like: https://PathToSchoolForm?????formname?????field1=value1...
Any thoughts or ideas?
