I'm working on a site that will include a "Downloads" area where
users can download various types of files. So I was going to build
out the section in Structure like normal, set up a couple of
channels to handle different types of downloads, and set each
channel up as a listing. So far, pretty straightforward. But the
catch is that the client wants to require users to fill out a
contact form before they can download the
So my thought would be to build out the section as normal.
However, on the page for a particular download listing, I'll set up
a basic contact form using Freeform which, when successfully
submitted, would send them to the same URL but with a "success"
segment added on the end. Freebie would then use that "success"
segment as a trigger word, and instead of displaying the form,
would display the download link. So, in other words, here are two
- Normal Structure URL, displays form
- Displays if form on above URL is successfully submitted, displays
file details and a download link
Based on some other posts I've read in the forum, it seems
doable, but I just want to verify that once and for all. Is my
reasoning solid, or am I missing something?
FWIW, I'm using EE 2.5.1, Structure 3.2.4, and Freeform

Sounds completely doable to me, but of course you'll need to run a few tests to verify your specific instance. I've never hidden things behind a form using it, but I don't see why not. Should be really easy to prototype.
