    Asked by gcmx on May 16, 2011 at 02:33 PM

    hi there,

    would appreciate someone telling me if there is a way to get a redirected form to appear within website window, rather than a separate window.  thank you . . .

    Hi,

    Are you referring to this page? It appears that you're using an image map as a link to your form.  This image map uses a JavaScript function to open the new window.

    The easiest solution for this is to replace the image map with a normal text link. Make the text link instead of

    That way, clicking the link will open the form in the same browser window and not in a new one.

    Hope this post answers your question. Let me know if there's anything else you'd like to have assistance with. Thank you.

    thanks for your reply.

    yes, you are referring to the right page in question. i'm using iWeb and i set up that link to go to your form page

    http://form.jotform.com/form/11205156302

    instead of opening in the same window, a second window opens to display the form.  do you provide an option to pick for open in 'same' window or open 'new' window?  thanks . . .

    Hi,

    This issue is out of Jotform's jurisdiction. It has something to do with the page you designed in iWeb. I'm afraid Jotform does not have control over this. It is up to you and how you edit your page.

    Like what I suggested in your previous post. the easiest solution for this is to replace the image map with a normal text link. Make the text link instead of . That way, clicking the link will open the form in the same browser window and not in a new one.

    This is the image map that I was talking about:

     

    Replace this with an ordinary text link, then make that links property open in same window rather than new window.

    As per iWeb's Getting Started manual:

    Add Links
    On any of your webpages, you can add hyperlinks that your website visitors can click to
    open:
    -  Another webpage on any of your iWeb sites. Drag the page you want to link to from
    the site organizer to the webpage canvas.
    -  Another website. In Safari, select the website URL (in the address bar at the top of
    the browser) and drag it to the webpage canvas.

     

    Hope this information was of any use to you. Let me know if you have other queries or concerns.

    OMG, i am very sorry for waisting your time.  i think i had a senior moment :)  i figured out what i did.  it is iWeb that gives an option as to opening in a new window or in the same window, not you.  i found the option and your form works fine.  again, thank you and sorry for the trouble . . .
