    Hi,

     

    I would like to know how do I make the THANK YOU confirmation page text display automatically at the top of the page so people do not have to scroll up to the top of the page to find it.

     

    To give you an example of what I mean, when I have created a form the submit button is at the bottom of the page and the THANK YOU message is at the top of the page.

     

    When they click SUBMIT they are then shown a blank page because of the length of the form and they have to then scroll back to the top of the form to see the thank you message.

     

    I would like to know how can I automate it so the thank message is shown so they do not have the scroll to the top of the page to find it ?

     

    Thanks.

    This person has a somewhat similar question to yours. Although the accepted solution is hidden from non-subscribers, the visible solutions are good too.

    Can I see the page? Can you post the URL?

    Go to

    www.sponsormytalent.com

     

    then click on POST AN AD on top rght hand corner of screen

     

    then click PERSONAL AD

     

    then the form wil be shown and fill it in using any random details and on the BASIC & PREMIUM OPTIONS just select BASIC ADVERT then click submit ad.

     

    Now, what happens is that the user then gets shown a blank page and has to scroll to the top of the screen to see the thank you message.

     

    I want the thank you message to be shown automatically so they do not have to scroll up to find it.

     

    Thanks

    I have tried couple of javascript tricks and nothing worked. So, I think you will have to use your own Thank You URL. Prepare a Thank You page on your site use that instead of the Thank You Message.

    I created a white image 250 x 250 pixels, inserted it at the top of the thank you page and then increased the font size for "Thank you" and it now the Thank You shows up without the person having to scroll up.

    Brilliant solution, nllemire! Reminds me of an instance where someone I know used a wire coat hanger to keep the landing gear of his plane stuck in the correct position (or something like that - it was some years ago). It also reminds me of a saying the older folk here on the island use: If you don't have a horse ride a cow. (Not that I have ever seen anyone actually ride a cow!)
