    How to embed a dynamic link in the thank you page

    Asked by felipe_sasa on September 06, 2012 at 11:31 PM

    Hi

    I have a form that contains a field where the user put a URL address.  I would like this URL address to be clickable when it is displayed in the thank you page.

    When I tried to insert a link using the Insert Link button and put the field name or filed ID as the link, this does not work because it automatially includes the "/" or the root path.

    Is there any work around to do this?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You need to add http:// before the the field variables. Example:

    http://{websiteURL}

    And to prevent errors, you would need to ask your form users not to place http:// on their URL, otherwise it will get duplicated.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    On behalf of my colleague, you're quite welcome. Incidentally, conditions could always be attached to the URL field (in case some users insist on including the http:// even though they were told not to do so). Have a look at this demo I just created.
