    Redirecting to Refering URL

    Asked by CrossWalkDesign on February 10, 2014 at 06:42 PM

    So I have been useing a form I made with JotForm for some time now. Now I am revamping the site and have been try to get my embeded form to redirect back to the refering url (right now it goes to the home page). I was able to get the same thing on a small form I made myself using some php: $parent = $_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"]; then using this varriable in the: header("Location:$parent"). Is there some way I can do this for my JotForm?

    That is the method I have been using. the problem is that my form is embeded in ever page of the site and I want to return the visitor back to the page that they fill in the form from.

    Unless I am mistaken I believe this may not be possible through the JotForm Builder itself. From my understanding is you could still use the Thank You Page to direct them to a PHP website. Where they could be redirected using a referer value. I am not too sure if this is what you where going in the past. 

    Kindly review the following thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/66850-thank-you-page
    for more information on this.


    Thank you
