Make Webflow form submission redirect and perform a search in Wordpress


#1

Hi there,

I am using Webflow to create a new marketing site for my startup and I want to use the Webflow standard form to pass through search terms and perform a search on my Wordpress site (which will be hosted on a subdomain eventually).

How I want it to work:

  1. User lands on http://conservation-guide.webflow.io/
  2. User uses the Webflow form in the top left of screen to type their search and hit enter - this is a form element not a search bar because I want them to search on my wordpress site
  3. Webflow redirects to https://conservationguide.org/projects/?search_keywords= and appends the search term to the end. Spaces need to change to +

NB: I want to keep the marketing site on Webflow; I don’t want to convert it to Wordpress.

Can anybody help me achieve this?

Many thanks,

Will

Change the form action to https://conservationguide.org/projects/ and remove the class w-form from the form element (after you export and convert to a Wordpress theme)

Hi samliew, thanks for your answer. However, I want to keep the marketing site on Webflow; I don’t want to convert it to Wordpress.

Is that possible?

Thanks

OK! Any ideas how I’d get started on that?

I’m not even sure what language it needs to be in

Hi, in case anyone wants to know how to do this some time in the future, I figured it out!

  1. Set the field name of your search field to search_keywords or whatever gets appended to perform the search on your page
  2. Set the form action to the search results page, minus the ?, so in my case https://conservationguide.org/projects/
  3. Set the form method to GET
  4. Voila!
