    Hello! I am hoping to use a jotform as a replacement for one of our php forms. I am having an issue with the thank you page. After a submission with our old (regular php) form, the page displays a thank you message that also echoes the details that were sent. I'll link a jpg of how that page appears.

    That is the post-submit page I am trying to approximate. The jotform standard thank you page isn't an option due to the jotform address it uses. I was hoping to get this this done with the send post function, but the info it returns is quite jumbled and not suitable for display to the website visitor.

    What can I do about that? The form in question is:  http://form.jotform.us/form/32050428608146

    I'd appreciate any advice you have! Thank you.

    Eliezer, thank you for the reply.  Unfortunately I can't use a method that results in taking the user to jotform.com URL for the thank you page.

    You can do 2 things here:

    1.Embed the form into a webpage, then apply the workaround EliezerN suggested to you, but you will paste the URL of that page rather than the direct link of the form

    2.You can apply custom domains. Please check this guide

    How to use Custom Domains with Jotform

    I hope this helps, do not hesitate to keep asking for help if needed

    Thank you for the reply. Option #1 that you list could work for me. I have two questions:

    Is option 1 still a viable solution if I switch the form to the SSL option and offer it as an SSL link link on our site? 

    And what can I do about shortening the embedded thank you page that is returned? If you test out the form linked below (feel free) you can see that the embedded Jot "thank you" page is using the much longer page length of the form that precedes it.

    #mce_temp_url#

    Thanks so much!

    Hi,

    Yes. But you will have to re-embed the form when using our SSL Feature. Setting Up a Secure or SSL Form.

    It adopts the whole length of the form. Please try re-embedding your form using our iframe method: How to Get Form iFrame Codes. This should help. If not, please let us know.

     

    Thanks

    The iframe method looks better for the thank you page and I will use it. Thank you Welvin.
