    Hello,

    I was wondering what the restrictions on changing the action attribute of the form tag, to submit the form internally.

     

    Example:

    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://www.jotform.com/submit.php" method="post"

    To

    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://[custom URL]" method="post"

     

    Where [custom URL] would be a service hosted internally.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    This should not be a problem you can download the full source code
    and then use your own action script instead of the default JotForm submit script.
    Please take note though that if you do this you will be responsible on maintaining
    your own script.

    To download the full source codes for your form:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed
    2.  Click the Embed Form button
    3.  Choose Source
    4.  Click the link that says "here"



    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Mliz

    In addition to what Mliz said, once you change the form's action url, submissions will no longer be stored on our server. Also, you would not be receiving mail notifications anymore.

    Basically, changing the action url makes it seem like you only used Jotform to design your form, kind of like an "Adobe Dreamweaver for forms".
