Hi,

I wish to add a web page where participants in our event could visit an download their participation certificates in PDF (already generated).

1. They should be able to input their 1-first name and 2-email id and then correct certificate (using the file name which contains firstname-emailid

any one any idea?

i could use ready made html code

You could use the restricted pages for that.

Make a page for each person and on that page you make a download button and the download should be the certificate.

This is possible without special code.

Why is it you simply not mail the certificates?

undecided@john S. 1. There are over 6000 certificates for one event and there are dozens of events each year.

2. Mail them: of course, that is what we have been doing. But for that large number it is not practical so that is why we need a better system

Hello,

The script proposed by John is better because the downloaded file is possible with a known filename or file ID and you have just only one field to fullfil. So errors are limited.

I have quickly integrated this one into my demo: https://wsx5demo.afsoftware.fr/index.html

Enjoy!

I have an example file attached

Usage:

For an event you make a subfolder on you site.

In here you place the cerficates for that specific event.

And you also place the attached unzipped html file.

In your X5 project you make a page with an iframe.

The initial source for the iframe is the newest event.

On the same page, you place html objects for each event.

Like it is done here: https://bramminginfo.dk/egnsmuseet.html

Each link will fill the iframe with a new "target".

The targets should be the download-html file that is in a folder for each event.

The download will be from the same folder where the html-file resides. That is why the download html should be together with the pdf files.

You can make a headline in each html-file telling the user which event he is downloadin certificates for.

Example: Download your certificate for the seminar "From stone axe to computer"

Hope you understand what it is I try to tell.
