    first of all I want to let you know, that jotform is fantastic and very useful for me. Saves me lots of time, and gives professionell forms output.

    Unfortunatly I found only 1 simple problem:

    I have a created a form (http://www.mr-fuss.com/haendleranmeldung/) which works realy good. Only setting the part

    Mr. Fuss Reseller Programm | Mr. Fuss EasyDealer

    in the first HTML Form element as Hyperlinks such as

    <a target="_blank" href="http://reseller.mr-fuss.com" rel="nofollow noopener" taregt="_blank">Mr. Fuss Reseller Programm</a>

    <a target="_blank" href="http://easydealer.mr-fuss.com" rel="nofollow noopener" taregt="_blank">Mr. Fuss EasyDealer Programm</a>


    always looess the target-attribute. When I change it In the Editor (as well directly in the html code) after klicking the "save" button, target-attribute is lost.


    Maybe you can have a look at it..

    Hi Arwin,

    We are sorry for that inconvenience but upon testing this on my end I'm unable to reproduce the problem. Please see this video that I made I did put your link in the HTML section and the target attribute works fine.

    Kindly try clearing your browsers cache and if this does not work on your end we can help you get this done just let us know where to put that section in your form.

    Hi jedcadorna,
    thank you for your help. You did use another way, to make the changes. With
    your way I could apply the changes to my form. Direct editing in the html
    editor did cause the problem, look at my screenshots:
    Thx and a merry christmas

    Hi Arwin,

    Can we assume that the issue is now resolved?
    I tested your form on your website http://www.mr-fuss.com/haendleranmeldung/ and can confirm that the HTML link on the form is now working as intended.

    Do inform us if issue persists.

    Hi thx,

    my problem is solved. It was just to inform you that obviosly the editor inside the form part was causing the problem. Editing by using the top menu icon did apply changes to the form. I just thought maybe this information could be useful for debug problems with the editor.

    Anyway, thx a lot, and a

    merry Christmas..

    Thank you for letting us know I think this has already been fixed by our developers I just tested it now and the target _blank attribute works fine using the 2 methods of embedding an HTML code. If this problem still shows on your end kindly lets us so we can submit it our dev team for further test. Thank you for your time and happy holidays.
