    Hi,

    I’m doing a site for a restaurant. Every week they update their website with the menu. How do I get the PDF to generate a menu with the latest data entered into the form, instead of having to reference a certain input. This is what I do now>

    [formidable-download form="b5fn92" dataset="702" title="Click to download menu" layout="1000" filename="Restaurant Menu"]

    But, instead of the dataset 702, which picks a specific record, I want it to insert the data from the latest input they did. How do I do that?

    Change dataset=”702″ to dataset=[id]

    That’s it!

    That makes sense, unfortunately the code stops working after the first end bracket when I put it into my HTML field (Cornerstone, X-theme). This is what I put in.

    `[formidable-download form=”b5fn92″ dataset=[id] title=”Click to download menu” layout=”1000″ filename=”Restaurant Menu”]

    So it seems I can’t use brackets within brackets, even if I use an html-module for it.

    That’s not a problem that we have experienced in the past. If possible, please complete this form to provide access to your installation for direct troubleshooting. If not possible, can you confirm the issue is related to your theme by testing with the Twenty Sixteen theme?

    FYI! If the shortcode is being used on a page or post, you must paste the shortcode into a Formidable View, then put the view’s shortcode where you need the link.

    Let us know if this was the case. We remain at your service.
