    I've been testing embedded JotForms on Unbounce, but I don't want them to redirect to a thank you page or any other URL after submission. Is this something we can do? If so, how?

    Could you please tell us what would you like to happen when the form is submitted? What would you like your users to see when the form is submitted?

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Sure! Unbounce sends the form data and reloads the page, already showing a confirmation dialog (which I'd like to keep) and displaying the form unfulfilled. Is something like this possible?

    If you would like to show the same form again unfilled, you could simply redirect the form to the same URL.

    For example, if the form URL is https://form.jotform.com/70404043069953 you can set the Thank you page to redirect to that same URL.

    Could that be what you're looking for?

    However wouldn't redirecting to the current URL just show the page inside the iframe, as it happens with the thank you page? Also, I intend to use the same form on multiple pages, so the redirect URL would need to be dynamic.

    Too complicated?

    Yes, you're correct, it will show in the same iFrame. So you would like to actually show the same web page with form embedded?

    Did you try other embedding methods? Maybe you can embed your form with a different method and try to redirect your users to the same URL of the web page where the form is embedded?

    Yes, showing the same web page with the form embedded would be the final goal.

    I'm currently using the default embed method, which creates the iframe when added to my Unbounce landing page.

    I tried the source code method, but that wouldn't work for me, as this same form would be added to multiple pages and updating it would mean to edit every single page, which currently happens to me using Unbounce and I am trying to avoid.

    Please let me know if there's something else I can clear out (:

    Hi,

    I examined your request and tried to come up with a suggestion within the realm of the iframe that the embedded form lives in, to no avail.

    I understand that you would like to have the form submission action, either go silently or trigger a reaction on the main page level, and both would require fine tuning that is only available through the source code method.

    Apologies for the inconvenience, and also in case I misunderstood the request and fell short.
