Hi, It's possible to open the "Gracias" page in a new page or (better) a new tab?

    I need close the "Gracias" page (in a popup window) without close the form page, and return to the form

    We do not support that since it causes confusion among users. If the form is submitted and it opens on a new page, the filled form stays still on the original page. This makes people think they were not able to submit the form. So, they re-submit it.

    Thanks, aytekin, I understand it. I'm using simplePHPblog with contact.php and comments.pfp forms, and they clear the form in a submit action, sending the user to Thank you page. In this way, never causes confusion among users (http://utopias.org.ar/contact.php). Best regards

    That's perfectly possible. You would need to write some javascript to clear the form though. You should add a to submit the form in a new window.
