    My own form and a cloned version of the demo form deliver me blank data for the Referrer URL.


    What to do?

    Hello Masalamedia,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    Upon checking your form, I was unable to replicate the problem you are having. I sent you a test submission and I was able to see the "Referrer URL" in your submission view. Check the screenshot below:

    Were you accessing the secure version of your form's URL? Upon checking I found that the "Referrer URL" widget does not work with the secure forms. I am creating a bug report and sending it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update on this.

    Thank you

    Hi: I got the submission you created and it does indeed include the URL as expected. Yes, it looks like the HTTPS is what makes a difference. Thanks for submitting that bug for repair.

    Doesn't look like this widget respects query strings after the main URL piece. Any way to capture the whole URL here?

    We have just fixed the widget problem on secure forms. The cache of the form may need to be cleared though. So, you need to open the form on form builder and then click on save button.
