    Hi,

    I would like to have a completely jotform free for experience for clients ...

    Embedding source code has the advantage over Iframe and embed method as no jotform reference is noticeable in the source code.

    However, on submission of a form that has embedded source code the submission page url changes to submit.jotform.php etc.

    Any technique to prevent this .... except a redirect ... I'd rather keep it simple than having to create a dedicated page

    Thanks, Regards Mark

    Mark,

    The script that processes form submissions is hosted in our server, so it is natural that the form redirects to submit.jotform.com. Currently, there is no way around this other than creating a redirection page.

    I can imagine a workaround by having the form submit to the 'form processor script' in the background by using ajax, but I am not sure how the said workaround can be simpler than just creating a redirection page.

    Neil,

    Thanks for that. I can see that source code embedded with a redirection page on my server would do the trick.

    What if I wanted to pull the field name of the person from jotform to my redirection page ... that'll be the "send post data" thing yeah?

    Do I just have to paste the field name in my html page for this to work?

    Any advice would be great on that thanks

    Regards Mark

    Hello Mark,

    Unfortunately, it would not be that simple.  Such custom woraround is already outside of JotForm.

    For a complete whitelabeled solution please look at some of the licencing options that are available:

    http://www.interlogy.com/products/jotform/

    These options allow you total control of the code.

    If this solution is not suitable for you, you may like to stand by to see if any of the other tema members have a workaround for you. 

    Hope that helps!  Please let us know if you need further assistance~

    Hi Eduardo,

    Your suggestion's somewhat ovekill don't you think? Just to get a name on a Thankyou Page?

    Go for the white-labelled licensing option that never gets updated and costs a load?? I don't think so.

    What's the "send post data" function for then? I thought that was for this very purpose? To transmit data to a thankyou page

    Isn't there a clever iframe thing one can do or something - I only want to prevent submit.jotform.php showing up in the address bar.

    Many thanks

    Hi there, 

    My apologies for the missunderstanding.  I was confused as to what you were looking for.   

    You are correct, you can redirect the user to a custom thank you page (you can create one).  And yes, you can use the send Post data in order to send the information that was entered by the user.  

    Here is a guide to help you with the send post data:

    Hope that helps!

    I was thinking about your request and would like to try something.

    May I ask what is the form that you are looking to apply this to?

    Also, what fields from that form would you like to use in your thank you page?

    I'll wait for your response!

    Mark, I think that the following may work for you:

    1. Create a form page on your site, e.g. yourdomain.com/form-page.html.

    2. Put your form source to that form-page.html.

    3. Embed that page using an iFrame to your main page.

    As far as I understand, it will work "without redirection" to submit.jotformpro.com.

    Thank you.
