VERY DISAPPOINTING - Simple Form to submit to Third Party Site

Jason Buck asked on January 26, 2018 21:05

I am very frustrated with Kentico right now.

Trying to create a simple form that POSTS Salesforce WebtoCase. This recommendation worked, but the page loads completely blank and ignores the template that is around it.

I don't want to have to iFrame or write an ASCX everytime I want to put a POST that goes outside of system.

Please find a way for Version 12 to allow this.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as my marketing team also needs to embed Marketo Forms at a future date and I don't want to have to create every form for them. Hence using a CMS.

You need to look at either using the built in Salesforce integration to push data from Kentico to Salesforce or look at third party integrations for this.

Secondly, this ( is the correct place to post your ideas about new technology within Kentico.

You might want to check out what Bizstream has put together, Connect for Kentico. It's a pretty cool toolkit which will allow you to connect forms to other 3rd party systems.

I can think of two approaches:

  • using system events: in this case you will have to implement form item insert before or after handler and make POST from there.
  • implement your own form with html and js and handle everything on a client

Hope this helps

Hi Jason,

What Jason posted seems like a good idea. You can use built in Forms and use those to gather data from visitors with standard web parts and either use back end events (global or object event handlers) to create POST request with form details to 3rd party, or you could achieve this in custom javascript that would take data from client as they are submitted and create a POST request.

I am happy to share my solution with you if you have not already figured this out.
