POST forms into Web AppBuilder

Hey Guys

I'm using the Dev SDK for Web AppBuilder to build an app. The client would like to submit a form contain a number of locations that need to be routed to. I'm at the point of getting the data from the first website into Web AppBuilder. I decided to go with the POST methods rather than GET to keep the url clean.


I made a very basic form (in the root dir of the app):

        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <title>Test Post to Webapp</title>

    <body >
        <h1>Test Post to Webapp</h1>
        <form id="form" method="post" action="result.html">                    
            <label class="description" for="element_1">CRC 1 </label>
            <input id="element_1" name="element_1" class="element text medium" type="text" maxlength="255" value=""/> 
            <label class="description" for="element_2">CRC 2 </label>
            <input id="element_2" name="element_2" class="element text medium" type="text" maxlength="255" value=""/>
            <input id="saveForm" type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" />

When I hit submit and result.html loads, it displays this error:

Cannot POST /webappbuilder/apps/4/form/result.html

I googled the problem and it seems others have had the issue with Node.js (which i believe I'm right in saying Web AppBuilder uses) but none that I've come across that are Web AppBuilder specific.


After some more playing i think it might be down to the Web AppBuilder server not parsing PHP properly? But i'm not 100% sure on this. If anyone is able to assist me with my problem that would be great.
