Yes, you could do this using a Form. If you set up a form using Wufoo, you can set the form to automatically redirect to a specific url when the user completes it. Here is a link to a Wufoo help page on Form Settings:

In order to put a form on your site:

Click on the widget toolbox at the righthand side of the screen, and then click on the "Forms" folder. We have integrated with two great services that allow you to create custom forms for your site: Wufoo and Form Assembly. Both services offer free and paid plans, so you can select the one that is right for you. I would suggest Wufoo for what you are wanting to do and then check out the link above for setting up the url redirect.

These are the steps for adding a form:
1. When you drop a form widget on your page, a dialogue box will open up. Click on the link in the bottom right hand corner and you will be taken to the form service.
2. Sign up for an account and create your form.
3. When you are done click "Get Code."
4. Copy the HTML code (use Ctrl-C or highlight with cursor > right-click > copy) and paste it into the SynthaSite dialogue box that opened when you dropped the widget (use Ctrl-V or right-click > paste to paste the code)

That's it, you will have your own custom form on your site and your responses will be managed in your Wufoo or Form Assembly account.

You can edit your settings on Wufoo or Form Assembly so that the information completed on your form is emailed to you, or you can visit your account to get the information on any forms completed.

Let us know if you have any trouble with this.

Kind Regards,

Hi Sarette,
I just wanted to mention that this functionality with Wufoo does take having a paid subscription; there are both, free and paid, but to do the form redirect you need to have a paid.

Hi Sarette,

This is possible. This is my suggestion. Password protect the page you wish to "block". Get user's to fill out a Wufoo form first. Once this form is filled out, submitted and reviewed by you, you can then send them the username and password to access the page.

Here's how to password protect the page:
1. Click on the Site Manager tab.
2. Click on "Site Password Protection" underneath the list of pages of your site.
3. Add a login name and password and tick the pages you would like to protect.
4. You can easily protect all your pages by clicking on "Lock All" or take off the password protection by clicking on "Unlock All"
5. When you create a new page, you will see a check box that gives you an option to protect (lock) the new page.
6. Preview your protected page to see what the login form will look like and to test your log in and password.
7. To make the change effective on your live site, click on the yellow 'Update my Site' button.

Here's how to add a Wufoo form:
Wufoo offers both free and paid options, so you can select the option that is right for you. When someone fills in your form their message will be stored in your Wufoo account and you will receive an email alert to let you know that you have a new message.

You will find the Wufoo widget in the "Forms" folder in the Content sidebar in SynthaSite.

After dragging and dropping a Wufoo widget onto your page in SynthaSite, click on the link in the dialogue box. Then sign up for an account with them if you have not already done so.

Then follow these steps on Wufoo:

1. Select the form you wish to use.
2. Click on save form.
3. The form manager will open up.
4. Click on "Notifications" - enter your details as to where you wish the info to get sent to (ie. your email address).
5. Click on "Save".
6. Click on "Save settings"
7. Click on "Code"
8. Copy the code and then and paste it into the Wufoo widget dialogue box in SynthaSite.

Your Wufoo form will then be embedded on your page and you can begin collecting information from your visitors directly from your website.
