Thank You Page: target="_parent" being removed from links

    Asked on March 29, 2019 at 02:15 PM

    I have a form that I have embedded in a website

    Upon submission with an invalid combination from dropdown menus the thank you page will pop up.

    I want to include a button in the page for people to go back and edit their selections. 

    I have attempted to use the {edit form} short code, but by doing that I either get a duplicate iframe or users will be able to then see hidden form elements when they go to edit it. 

    I want to just add a button to just refresh the whole page, but when I edit the source code to include a button, it is just spitting out my html instead of a button. i've tried coding it in multiple ways and I am sure I am missing something simple, but I don't know.

    Please help! thanks!

    Update: I've got the button formatting correctly, but using target=_parent is getting stripped out of my button formatting and thus just loading a new iframe within the iframe.

    How do I keep the target=_parent from being stripped out?

    I am afraid the target = _parent attribute is not currently supported for the links within the form Thank You Pages. I have forwarded a ticket regarding this issue to our developers. There is no ETA for when it will be addressed, but we will let you know if we have any updates.

    You may consider redirecting a user to a custom Thank You Page in your website, where you can add a custom link.

    thats a real bummer, and a bit shocking...redirecting the user to another page to go back to the first page is too long of a way around.
