    Can this be done? I tried setting target=_parent, but I cannot set <base target="_parent"> in the head of the page that displays in the iframe. Any workarounds?

    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.

    I found another thread from a couple years ago where using _parent as target worked (https://www.jotform.com/answers/842715-How-to-open-the-link-on-the-Thank-you-page-in-the-same-page-and-not-in-the-form-iframe). Is this newly unsupported?

    Thank you for your patience.

    As suggested by my colleague, target=_parent is not currently supported. This has been forwarded to our backend for review and they will get back to you ASAP.
