    Is it possible to have all scripting on my side?

    Asked by Michael on July 25, 2012 at 03:43 PM

    Heya,

    I'm trying to create a website with anonymous submissions - this is a close example:

    http://www.grouphug.us/node/add/confession

    Jotform works great for this except for the spinning 'loading' animation between the form fillout page and the confirmation page. Is there a way to prevent this page from appearing? I have a custom URL for confirmation that I'd like to be the only thing the user sees after submitting their form entry.

    This script for this seems to be on the jotform.com server - my idea was to download this and then reconfigure the code myself and host it so it exists on the same server as my website. This means that if I wanted to use the same code in 10 years (hypothetically) when the jotform link under "<form action=" has expired or changed, I still could do so.

    Currently, submissions are sent to a google spreadsheet. I've been searching tirelessly for the code to do this, but it's seeming like it might be more trouble than it's worth for one loading animation.

    Ultimately, what I'm after is customisability.

    What do you think?

    Yes, both things are possible to accomplish to

    You can make the Thank You page to redirect to  a custom URL

    Once you have the form styled and configured with notifications, custom URL , etc. you can go ahead and download its full source code so you can host it in your side

    Please take a look at those guides and if you still need assistance, let us know

    Do you have any idea which file I should be modifying to avoid the loading animation? Would it be jotform.js? And which part of it?

    Which loading animation are you specifically talking about? can you provide with pictures?

    The script that calls the function to redirect to submit.php  is included into the jotform.js file, just open it with notepad or any other editor and make a search of it and you should be able to locate it

    NOTE:

    If you just want to make the form to redirect to a custom URL after the submission, check this guide for further details  , setup the form on that way and then you can go ahead and download its source code

    Cheers!

    Thanks for this, but I'm trying to determine what I should be modifying the code to if I wanted to skip the loading animation while still submitting the information to google docs?

    I've already changed to a custom Thank You URL.

    I am not sure but I think it is hardcoded into our servers. Let me forward your request to 2nd level so they can assist you better

    Hello,

    The code for the spinning animation thingy is in the submit.php file that is hosted in our server. If you'd like to bypass this, you may just create your own form processor php page, and that will give you all the customization freedom you need.

    The request ticket has already been forwarded to our developers, but we cannot commit to a definite completion time. To be honest with you, the development team prioritizes features/options that get a lot of requests.

    Still, we'll update you here in case we get an update.
