    Can form start on a landing page?

    Asked by tsanner on January 21, 2014 at 10:04 PM

    1-- I was wondering if a form can start on a landing page, then move off that page.

    For example, my landing page has a picture and some other things on it, but I don't want that to be visible after the first section of the form... does that make sense? Is this possible?


    2-- Is there a way to do a "help" sidebar with each form section (or something of that nature)?

    Hello tsanner,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question completely. 

    I believe you can embed your form's lightbox code in your landing page and enable it to auto popup. Once the lightbox form is close it will not come back unless the page is refreshed. Is this something similar what you are looking to achieve? If yes, here is a guide to help you achieve this in your web page: https://www.jotform.com/help/203-How-to-Auto-popup-a-Lightbox-Form

    On your question related to "help" section: We do have a "Hover" property feature with every form field. You can set any help test here and it will be displayed on your form when you moce hover on your form field:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!
