    Thank You Page Wizard - Why is background transparent?

    Asked by sek on January 26, 2011 at 11:32 AM

    Hi -

    Probem Description
    -  I am using the "Thank You Page Wizard"
    - I select the 3rd option (After form submission, show a message)
    - I included a "RETURN" button to send the user back to my Home Page
    - This works perfectly for when someone submits a Contact us" form
    - When I cut/paste the "same" Thank You code for my Stage Show Sign-up form, I get a transparent background on the Thank You message and when I click return, it does return me to the home page but still displays part of the Sign-up form which looks really odd

    Example of this working correctly
    1.  Go to www.pearlbluegrass.smugmug.com
    2.  Click on "Contact Us"
    3.  Fill out the form and submit
    4.  Receive the "Thank You" message
    5.  Click RETURN button and be returned to Home Page

    Example of odd behavior I need help with
    * Again, I'm cutting/pasting the "same" Thank You page code as above
    1.  Go to www.pearlbluegrass.smugmug.com
    2.  Click on "Stage Show"
    3.  Click on "Feb 5th"
    4.  Select "7:45", fill in required fields and Submit
    5.  Notice the background for the Thank you page is transparent (?)
    6.  Click "RETURN" button and be returned to Home Page but notice that the bottom of the previous Sign-Up page is still displayed

    Thank You Page code
    <div style="text-align: center;">
    <h1>Thank You!</h1>
    <span style="font-size: small;">Your submission has been received.</span></div>
    <div style="text-align: center;"><input style="background-color: orange;" onclick="location.target="_blank" href='http://www.pearlbluegrass.smugmug.com' rel="nofollow noopener"" type="button" value="RETURN" /></div>

    Can you please help me with this?
