    The forms we are using a working well when embedded in posts on our website. One problem with the one that I am about to open up for registrations - VBS Volunteers. When the Submit button is pressed the Thank You page is displayed (yeah!) but it is too far up - the user needs to scroll. I tried adding a "Back to Top" button - but it's too low.

    On our website: http://nassauchurch.org/vbs-volunteers/

    (Wordpress site)

    I'm open to suggestions to make this better. Thanks for the help!

    I have tested the form on your wordpress page and was able to replicate the issue. The page is not scrolled up upon form submit. Could you try embedding the form using the Wordpress-Plugin?


    If the issue still persists, please get back to us so that we can look into this further.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

    I embedded the form using the Wordpress Plugin, but we have had issues with this before and it happened again.

    When you hit the "submit" button it turns to "Please wait" and never submits the form. I've left it like this for now (and added "Under Construction" at the top of the page so other people hopefully won't use it) if you'd like to look at it.

    When I was having this submit problem before the solution seemed to be to use the iFrame embed - this has worked for us.

    Please still use the Iframe code/embed and try to add this css code,


    margin-top:-40px!important;/*you can change the number to greater value if you want to increase the height of your Thank you page*/



    Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.
