    Hi,

    Is there a way to add a page with "terms and conditions" to my form? Now I have a link to the "terms and conditions" page with a check box, but the page shows up in a google search because it's linked to my form. I want to find a way to have clients check that they've read the terms without the terms showing up in a google search (which will happened if linked to my webpage in some way).

    I've tried to hover the text, but I think the text is too long. Or maybe I'm not doing it right.

     

    Thank you!

    Can you please elaborate on google search result issue. 

    You may like to have a look at this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/76-How-to-add-agreement-check-box-to-a-form

    If the text are too long for your form, you can display the "Terms and Condition" in hyperlink. Check this form: http://www.jotform.com/form/10694504891

    Hi Sidharth,

    Thank you for getting back to me so soon. I've tried the hyperlink method successfully. I thought it was working great for awhile. Then I tried to search for my website on google, and my terms and conditions and fees came up when I typed in my website name. I don't want them to be public. I only want people to see them when they fill out my registration form. I also made the terms and conditions page private on my website. My web builder told me that the page comes up in google because it's a link.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Amy,

    You may consider using rel="nofollow" on your Terms and Condition page. Check this guide: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=96569 

    Or, by using robots.txt: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=156449.

     

    Thanks

    Hi Welvin,

    I'm just trying to figure out how to use the rel = "nofollow". I want to make sure I'm doing it correctly, since my page will show up in google for awhile if I'm not. Where do I add the code? The tutorial doesn't explain that. 

    Thanks!

    Amy

    Also, could you please remind me how to add a terms and conditions link to my form? It's been awhile since I've updated it. Thank you!

    Hi Amy,

    If you'd like a terms that pops-up over form, use the following code.

    <a target="_blank" href="javascript:void window.open('http://www.jotform.me/terms','','scrollbars=yes,menubar=yes,resizable=yes,left=30,top=30,height=500,width=650')" rel="nofollow"> Terms and Conditions</a>

    Just replace the bolded URL to your terms and conditions URL and adjust the window width and height. I have already added the nofollow on that code.

    You can paste this code using Free Text HTML tool or under the checkbox options.

    Example: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30371926950961?

    Hope this helps. Thank you!

    Thanks!

    If I do it this way, will it be possible to print out the terms?

    @amynorman,

    You can add a print button on your terms page. You can use the following code.

    <input type="button" onClick="javascript:window.print()" value="Print This Page"/>

    Example: http://jsfiddle.net/KtnXT/

    Thank you!

    Thanks! Do I need to do this in the options window on the jot form or on the html for my terms page?

    @amynorman

    You should add this print button in your Terms & Condition page (html page).

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks,
