    hi

    it seems there is alot of conversation on the above topic, i think that before trying on my own, i would appreciate your advice on:

    within a url and a browser showing a jot form

    i would like to give the user the option of clicking a "button" which opens a new browser window with a new url (url is something like...http://www.cevlforhealthcare.org/cevl/one_learn_utd_jpu/phoneApp/story.htm)

    in this way the user can go back and forth between the jot form and the content in the new url (not a jot form)

    thanks

    You can add your hyperlink to the source of a text field and add as an attribute to the hyperlyink.

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.cevlforhealthcare.org/cevl/one_learn_utd_jpu/phoneApp/story.htm" rel="nofollow noopener" >http://www.cevlforhealthcare.org/cevl/one_learn_utd_jpu/phoneApp/story.htm</a>

    Here is an example form with a text field using your URL:

    for this form
    https://form.jotform.com/61754777771167
    this is the code i entered

    http://www.cevlforhealthcare.org/cevl/cevl_ver_2/MENU_UROLOGY/penis/Circumcision/nb_circ_forms/jotform_assets/movies-alternate-view/story.html

    seems to work, but...
    can i set it so user only sees the words "alternate window to view movies"
    and so that clicking the box, a NEW browser window opens, so user can go
    back and forth between windows more easily
    thanks

    The code needs to be added to the source code section of the field, not directly into the field:

    And to have the text displayed be the text you mentioned, the code would be:

    <a target="_blank" href="http://www.cevlforhealthcare.org/cevl/cevl_ver_2/MENU_UROLOGY/penis/Circumcision/nb_circ_forms/jotform_assets/movies-alternate-view/story.html" rel="nofollow noopener" >Alternate window to view movies</a>

    The highlighted portion is the text displayed.
