using wordpress/CiviCRM 4.7.

I have a contribution page with a profile attached (under the profiles tab for the contribution admin page). The profile contains custom fields that can have multiple entries. When a user goes to this page, it is populating the contents with existing data from that user - I want to present an empty form for this. Any ideas how to do this?

  • Please if anyone has a suggestion on how to resolve this? I really need to fix this before I can let users access it because it is causing confusion. – Norm Dressler Jun 6 '17 at 17:18

Is the user logged in? If so then it will auto populate with their details. I think you could override this but lets confirm how users are accessing the form first.

  • Yes, users are logged in - the configuration is as such - I have a custom group of fields which allow multiple records attached to individual records. We are a dog registration association so this allows for multiple dogs to be registered. When the user is logged in, they are given the option to register a new dog and it goes to a contribute page with a profile attached. The profile page is populated, as you said likely because they are logged in. – Norm Dressler Jun 9 '17 at 14:30

I can't explain how to do this in WP. In Drupal you could use Webform. But the approach I would suggest, would be that you record the Dog as a Contact, and get some coding done to create the Relationship to the Owner. Then I would have the payment function as a Gift Membership or Soft Credit (waves hands around as not clear what you need) so that the payment is recorded on both Dog and Person.

  • Not really what I want. It works for everything except that profile. I do understand what you suggest, however. – Norm Dressler Jun 10 '17 at 0:09
