    Passing form using JSON

    I wonder if somebody can help me please. I've got a form that I want to send to a different page via JSON but I've never used JSON before. I've tried to read about it but I don't understand. I want to send the variables as one string. So for example I want to send the results like this: submit.php?FORM=fred|fred@somewhere.com|12/12/2012 So the users' name, email address and date of birth are sent as one string. The form looks like this:

    Code:
    <form action="http://www.somewhere.com/submit.php" method="get" name="email" id="email" onSubmit="return validate_form()" style="margin: 0 0 15px 5px; text-align: center;">
    									  									<p style="margin: 5px 0; text-align: center; font-size: 13px; text-transform: uppercase;">Please enter your name:</p>
    									<p style="margin: 0px;"><input name="name" type="text" id="name" value="name" onFocus="if(this.value=='name')this.value='';" style="width: 310px; margin: 5px 0; height: 25px; border: 0px solid #FFFFFF; font-size: 15px; padding: 5px; font-weight: bold; color: #666666;"/></p><p style="margin: 5px 0; text-align: center; font-size: 13px; text-transform: uppercase;">Please enter your name:</p><input name="email" id="email" type="text" value="email"></p>
    									<p style="margin: 5px 0; text-align: center; font-size: 13px; text-transform: uppercase;">and your date of birth:</p>
    									    <p style="margin-top: 0px;">Date: <select name="day" id="day">
    									      <option value="">-</option>

    									  </form>
    I'm not sure if it makes any difference, but the submit.php file is on another domain which is on a different server.

    Thanks

    There are a lot of solutions available that will serialize (which is the term describing what you want to achieve) form fields (e.g. Javascript form serialize) . But in the end you will most probably end up with something like
    Code:
    fieldname1=valueOfField1&fieldname2=valueOfField2&....
    which is the common format for URI parameters.

    Hmm, that's what I thought might be the case. I'll have a look at that link though, thanks
