    Cancel and Go Back button

    Asked by mgcaledonian13 on May 25, 2017 at 10:28 AM

    I have an Image for a Cancel and Go Back button on my form and I managed by browsing the Forum to find out the code to make it work, I used it but did not like the fact it left the form did not open in the original tab. so I removed "_blank" but that took me to two of the web pages one inside the other - no good. I could not remember what to substitute "_blank" to make it work properly, now found it it is "_self" I think.

    But can I find the post that originally helped me - NO 
    Can you give me a clue as to where it might be.
    If I try to put a link to the Image it does not hold the link, there might be something wrong here

    Form in Question is https://form.jotformpro.com/71430717979971

    Regards

    You can check this threads:

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/470300-Creating-a-Link-Button 

    I did a few tests and it seems that button will not be shown on live form. There will only be a link. I think that is no longer possible to show buttons that are create with HTML code because of security reasons.

    You can also use submit button and redirect your users to your webpage, once they submit the form.

    I just realized that you wanted to add an image as a link. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotformpro.com/71445335071956 

    If you click on image you will be redirected to google. 

    I have added this code to text field.

    Feel free to test and clone my form

    Thanks for that info.

    Could not get the "cancel.." button to open within Website it either opened the Page again within the original page, that gave two site headers or it opened in a new tab neither of which I wanted.

    Found solution within WP, meant having an extra page though, but it now does what I wanted.

    Thanks Again for you help
