Remoteform is intended for CiviCRM users who maintain their web site on a separate server from their CiviCRM installation (e.g. for Powerbase users).
To use Remoteform, your web site must run via https.
Using Remoteform is a two step process.
- Set things up in CiviCRM.
- Set things up on your web site
Before you begin, be sure you are logged into both CiviCRM and your web site.
First, install and enable the Remoteform extension.
Adminstration -> Customize data and screens -> Remote Forms.
Enter your web site's address. Only the addresses listed here will be able to submit forms to your CiviCRM instance.
Third, edit the profile or contribution page to enable remoteform. Here's an
example of a profile page (look in
Profile Settings -> Advanced Settings):
If you want to place a contribution page on your web site, you will see the same field option on the main Title configuration tab of all your contribution pages.
Important: Be sure to click save after you click the checkbox! If you don't save the profile or contribution page, then Remoteform will not work.
In your web site
You can do that in either Firefox or Chrome by right clicking on the page and choosing the Inspector. Below is what it looks like in Firefox.
Click the Console tab, and check for messages.
