Submitting to a url - still possible in Wordpress?

Greg R.
I'm finally moving one of my long-term clients from Joomla to Wordpress, and I've been using Chronoforms to process submissions from a web app, using a tag like this:

<form action="" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" id="formid"  data-ajax="false">

And with a corresponding hidden id number field at the end of the form.

Will this still work in Wordpress??

Ok, I've made progress: the same syntax in the code above definitely does work, as it should, HOWEVER: I had to remove the previously mentioned hidden id field in order to get the form submission to complete. Can someone please remind me how to set up the unique id for submission in the form settings?

The old one looked like this: <input type="hidden" name="(hash number like)2c49fc333e6d8ba74b" value="1" />
Hi Greg R,

The URL in the action looks to me like a Joomla! SEF URL - please check the correct format to use in WordPress.

If you'd like to buy me a coffee or two, thank you very much

Hi Bob, submission is not a problem, and my original question is solved, however, is there a way that I can flag my form with a unique id to prevent bots or others from submitting to the form as I am doing? I believe that is the purpose of the hidden id tag I mentioned above?

Darn it, is there an edit button here

You're right of course, the difference is that:

Joomla =

Wordpress =

There's a slash in there!
