WebinarJam and EverWebinar documentation Webinars for everyone!

Your own custom confirmation page

This feature is available for both WebinarJam and EverWebinar.

Upon registration, you can choose to redirect your users to one of our default Thank You page templates, or alternatively to your own custom URL.

If you opt for the latter, there are a few things to keep in mind…


URL parameters

Since you’re going to be hosting the Thank You page on your server outside the WebinarJam/EverWebinar ecosystem, we’re passing some parameters in the URL in case your want to grab them and display them in your page. This is not mandatory in any way – it’s just an advanced feature for all of you with programing skills looking to implement some custom coding into your Thank You page. Here’s a quick tutorial on how to grab the URL parameters from your Thank You page, but do remember that it requires some basic JavaScript coding chops.

Here’s the list of the variable parameters being passed in the URL:

  • wj_lead_first_name
  • wj_lead_last_name
  • wj_lead_email
  • wj_lead_phone_country_code
  • wj_lead_phone_number
  • wj_lead_unique_link_live_room
  • wj_room_password
  • wj_next_event_date
  • wj_next_event_time
  • wj_next_event_timezone
  • wj_event_ts
  • wj_event_tz

Some things to keep in mind:

  • All parameters are always passed to your custom Thank You page automatically by the system. You don’t need to do anything on your end.
  • All parameters are passed every time, even if they are passed empty.
  • All parameters are encoded to be URL-friendly, so you will need to decode them before displaying them on your page. Example: email@domain.com will be passed as email%40domain.com
  • The parameters wj_next_event_timezone, wj_event_ts and wj_event_tz all refer to the time zone but displayed in different formats, so you may pick whichever works best for you.

Here below is an example of how those parameters would be passed on in the URL, variable parameters in blue, and their respective values in red, all of them concatenated by the “&” ampersand symbol. For this example, let’s say that my custom success URL is https://www.domain.com/success , and that the registration form only asked for first name and email address. Please note how some variable parameters carry no value since they were not requested in the registration form.



Activate the confirmation email notification

If you’re planning NOT to include any custom parameters in your Thank You page, you certainly want to activate the confirmation email at the Notifications step. The reason for that is to make sure the user receives (via email) his unique link to the webinar room, as well as a reminder of the event’s date and time.
