I see a bunch of random letters and numbers before submitting my form?

    iPhone 5, latest iOS, Safari

    When submitting my form all the fields shows a random bunch of numbers, which looks a bit frightening. Did a quick search on my encryption key to make sure those numbers were not any of my private key which they were not.

    Also the form is not being redirected to the external link, the page turns white blank and stays that way not sure if the encryption error has anything to do with it or if that's something else.

    Screen recording of the action:

    Your form is encrypted.

    That is the normal (intended) behavior (the random bunch of letters&numbers) because the data is encrypted before it is sent to our servers.

    Your key is not there, that is just the data that is being encrypted before submission.

    I did a test on iPhone5, and one on Android. Both times the form was submitted successfully and I was redirected.

    Thanks for testing this.

    I perhaps think the encryption random number thing is a bit nerdy and confusing but ok.

    Thing is you are using a simulator and they don't always show real world.

    Have tested on three different actual Iphones (5 & 7) on two different wifi (one my next door neighbour) on 2 x safari 1 x chrome browser the form is still not re-directed.

    That is the way encryption works. Now, only you, who has the private key can decrypt that data that is submitted.

    Is the URL of the browser changing when you submit the form? It should redirect to this URL https://flmjet6.wixsite.com/mysite/online-store

    Thanks Adrian!

    Regards to the encryption, that's ok just wondering, Dropbox does it, to give a different point of view, I'm using a Dropbox app (who also use encryption) and have no strange numbers showing once you've clicked submit, is that something they then control or is there something else I've missed?

    My use of the drop box form; https://flmjet6.wixsite.com/mysite/copy-of-trim-tidy-1

    The URL from the form to the next page is not changing it stays on the form URL, it doesn't change, all I see is a white page.

    That is just to show that the form is encrypted. Although I agree, it might confuse the user.


    I have tried using different devices (iPhone/iPad simulators), but I couldn't replicate the issue.

    I will forward this thread to my colleagues who have an actual iPhone to make a test on your form.

    If the issue can be replicated, we will escalate it to Level 2.

    I just tested your form on iPhone 7 from Safari, and it worked fine, I was redirected properly to Thank you page:

    Is your form embedded in a website by any chance?

    That's great Nik to see that it works, somehow. Yes, it is embedded into a Wix website, would that make it a Wix issue?

    Not necessarily, but it would make a difference when testing, so could you please share the URL where the form is embedded?

    Thank you!

    I was able to replicate this issue now when submitted from the website.

    I assume you embedded your form by following: https://www.jotform.com/help/70-Adding-a-Form-to-Your-Wix-Site

    If you did, please try re-embedding your form by using:

     <iframe id="JotFormIFrame-80034061385348" onload="window.parent.scrollTo(0,0)" allowtransparency="true" src="https://form.jotformeu.com/80034061385348" frameborder="0" style="width: 1px; min-width: 100%; height:786px; border:none;" scrolling="no"> </iframe>

    Let us know how that worked.

    Thank you!

    Not quite. I used the Script method, embedding into Wix with their code option: 

    Having tried your Iframe suggestion unfortunately it doesn't seem to work as it still just takes me to a white page, just tested on iphone 5 and laptop both safari.

    Sorry for the delay. I believe you already tried the Script method and the iFrame method. I can also verify that you also followed this guide.

    Upon further checking, I found out that the issue is related to the restrictions of the iFrame in Wix.  There should be a value called "allow-top-navigation" in the sandbox attribute of the iFrame itself. If this option is available, then the embedded form will have a permission to redirect to another page. Here's a related thread.

    You might need to contact Wix support to check if they have a solution to this problem. Here's a related support document from Wix: Guidelines-and-limitations-of-the-HTML-code-and-embed-a-site-elements.

    Hope that helps. Thank you for your understanding.

    Much appreciated Jan!

    Yes have tried all three ways of the Jotform embedding; Direct link, Script & Iframe.

    Wix is iffy when it comes to third party apps. They basically have a mantra that states: 

    "We are unable to provide support for external HTML codes that are added to Wix sites as the codes have not been tested by Wix."

    The only way around it the way I understand it is from what they say on the same guide line page; 

    "You can use Wix Code to write code to access third party web services. You can call a third party service directly from your client-side code. "

    Unfortunately I'm not a coder so might end up pay a wix pro to help me build a custom upload form, in their end-to-end universe.

    Did you the above suggestion from my colleague.

    Try adding allow-top-navigation in the sandbox attribute of the iframe.

    Yes I did see it but not sure how to go about it, I'm unfortunately not a coder/programmer however I am ever so slowly trying to figure out how Wix code works. On the Wix page where the form is and looking at the page code I can't see what Jan can.

    My colleague was using chrome developer tool to check your HTML elements.

    Kindly edit your IFrame code and edit this line.

    To this,you need to paste it first to your notepade or notepadd++ and manually edit the line.

    <iframe width="100%" height="100%" scrolling="auto" sandbox="allow-same-origin allow-forms allow-top-navigation allow-popups allow-scripts allow-pointer-lock" src="https://flmjet6-wixsite-com.filesusr.com/html/8a489b_06c4dbb7531c4f73e4c1c7eda28cb4a9.html"></iframe>

    By the way, your website works in chrome and firefox.

    You can also check this thread my colleague has suggested. https://www.jotform.com/answers/829758

    Let us know how it goes.

    Currently looking into if I can change their Iframe all at but I can't even see it when I use their Code developer tools which accesses their page code.

    HOWEVER

    I might have found some sort of work around, Wix won't let Jotform redirect to another of their own pages but if I set my form to a thank you page and put a LINK in that message it will redirect. It's an extra click (not a fan of more clicks) but as least it works.

    Yes, it seems that Wix does not allow to redirect the form to another page after submitting it. Glad to hear that using the default Thank You page resolved your issue.

    If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
