    Thanks for making this great plug-in. I am using it more and more.

    For dataset I use [id] so that the PDF generates the data that the user just entered. There are no problems when I put this shortcode into the form settings, message on submit box.

    I want to provide a link to the form from the webpage, apart from the form submission message. The reason is I am taking data from a form the user submitted previously and using it to generate a different PDF. I am attempting to insert the shortcode into a post from the editor, but the shortcode is only being read up to the second set of brackets.

    This is the shortcode: [formidable-download form=”78y5o123″ dataset=[id] layout=”14″]
    This is how the shortcode appears on the published page: Download layout=”14″]
    (the Download is hyperlinked but does not generate the PDF)

    How can I insert the shortcode from the page/post editor?

    Thank you for the help!

    Thank you for using the plugin, we appreciate that you are enjoying it and finding more ways to use the shortcode!

    [id] by itself will not work in a page/post. However, you can use [id] within the shortcode inside a view, and then publish the view’s shortcode in a page or post. Then, you can pass any entry_id through the URL to the view.

    We remain at your service.
