URL Variable may pull special characters


We are using embedded survey gizmo forms on our school’s student portal. 

To facilitate form completion we pre-populate the name and emails based on an account login.

This works great until someone has an apostrophe in their name. At which point the embed dies. 

I am trying to find a way to script the embed so that any special characters like an apostrophe will safely pass through and populate the field.


Can anyone help me?

    Hi there!

    My guess is that you might need to URL encode things like apostrophes (the encoded character for an apostrophe is %27 for example) before passing them into the embed.

    If this doesn’t work reach out to our support team; they’ll be able to sort out the trouble!
