Form Auto Fill

I need to know how to have a user fill out information on a form on “page1” and when they press submit be brought to “page2” where the information they typed on “page1” will already be in the form.

Thanks in advance,


We do this with our multi-part insurance forms.

You’ll need the server to keep track of the user input with either a session or a cookie. Some people have cookies turned off, and they can be spoofed. Either way, it’s absolutely a back-end issue (so, whatever backend language is running your website, that’s who’se going to deal with the session data).

Since you’re interested in accessibility, you’ll want to read about POST-redirect-GET, which preserves the Back button after form submission.
