Hi Jimmy, Thanks for your reply. I was able to get a solution from CtCt Tier 2 support today to be able to pass the variables via HTTP and use the email wizard! Basically, you just need to not track the link. If you track the link, you are asking CtCt to create tracked links for everyone you send the campaign to. Once I unclicked the tracked option when adding the URL to the button, it worked great! We needed it to work through the email wizard for non-developer staff to be able to create their own campaigns. From reading the API docs, it looks like we would have to implement the AuthO onto our Joomla site. Should be doable but more work and potential debugging than we need. However, if we do need to track the clicks, then we may revert to using the API so your feedback is also helpful. Thank you!

Hi There, We are trying to pass the contact variables from an email into a form on our website. When I use the custom XHTML email editor, it works! When I add the Contact Details variables using the wysiwyg editor, it pulls the details from the account holder, not the details of the subscriber (weird, huh?). Here is my URL that works in the Advanced Editor (XHTML): https://mywebsite.org/join?form[first_name]=$Subscriber.FirstName&form[last_name]=$Subscriber.FamilyName&form[email]=$Subscriber.Email&form[facility]=$Subscriber.CompanyName Also, there must be a way to pass this information using the API with PHP cURL and have it be more secure, correct? Thanks in advance for your help!
