    Using the redirect option to a new page, i would like to write a success message including some personal info already used in the email placeholders e.g. [[+name]]

    What is the easiest way to do so ?

    I have to call the formit snippet on that new page, how ?
    e.g. [[!FormIt?
    and write an additionnal snippet getInfo to set placeholders containing this info ?? or there is an easier way to re use the email placeholders ?

    Many thanks for your help

      Using FormItRetriever on the page you are redirecting to you can populate the page with data collected in the form.

      So if you had this in your form...

      	<label for="firstname">
              First Name:
              <span class="error">[[!+fi.error.firstname]]</span>
          <input type="text" class="firstname" name="firstname" id="firstname" value="[[!+fi.firstname]]" />

      You would put this on the page you are redirecting to...

      Your name: [[!+fi.firstname]]

        Thanks Andy. Sounds like this extra has been developed exactly for that need. I'll look into it and see if i could find a quick solution without
        adding an additional extra. I am still learning and also endeavouring to use the minimum amount of extras,
        to make it easier for maintenance and upgrades, also less potential vulnerabilities...
