    How can I keep my 'thanks page' inside the original page of my embeded form?

    Asked by governoRPC on September 28, 2012 at 09:39 PM

    I create a thanks page in an URL, and put my form embeded inside main page.

    BUT when the form is submitted, the thanks page is redirect to the top,  eliminating the entire structure.

    Can I change the target to "_self"?



    (main page the page has a button below that opens the form: http://republica.corinthians.com.br/loukinhos)

    It is not possible to keep an external thank you page (custom URL) inside the frame of an embedded form. Custom URL redirection will always take over the browser window, replacing your current page.

    Only the options Default Thank You page and Thank You message can be displayed on the same frame as the form's.

    See the image below for reference:

    A perfect solution for you would be to go the Thank You message route and edit it to duplicate your thank you page's appearance (at http://www.republicadocorinthians.esp.br/loukinhos/obrigado.html).

    While you're at the Thank You message editor, click the Edit HTML button

    In the HTML Source Editor popup,


    ...delete everything then copy these codes: http://pastie.org/4858968

    Those codes are taken from your custom URL Thank You page, slightly modified to point to the correct image locations.

    Click on Update, then finish the wizard to save it. Afterwards, save your form.
