    Opening the link in the form to a new tab instead of the same tab

    Asked by tiptopadmin on March 24, 2017 at 05:51 AM

    I'm creating a survey for customers, my last page say "please leave review on one of our pages before submitting" I've added little logos for the different sites an added our link - when clicked it takes user directly to page instead of opening a new page. Using html isn't an option - so what do I do since there's no visible option to click through jotforms build?

    Example of what I'm talking about.


    Ooh, when I do it here it gives me a target option - it's not doing that on my form through text element.

    The images are now taking you to a new tab when clicked. But when embedding, I don't think the same method will work since the form is loaded through another frame. Did you embed the form? Can you share us the page here? This way we can check it for you.

    Please try the default embed method. If that won't work, the form source codes is the only way.

    I goolged it and found that adding "target=_blank" to the end of the URL that made it open a new window. 

    Do you know how to make it open in background instead of making my jotform window fall to the back?

    Do you mean, open the form in the same window? If so, change _blank to _self or _parent. If not, please explain further.
