    Hi marsupial

    Thanks for asking. To change that message, do the following:

    1. Load the form in question into the form builder and while on the Setup & Embed tab, click Preferences

    2. When the Preferences window pops up, click the Advanced Settings and then the Edit Form Warnings button

    3. Click Please wait..., change the text to suit and click Save

    4. Close the Preferences and save the form

    If you need help with anything else related to our product, please feel free to post the question on the forum and our team will gladly assist you as best as we can.

    Hi Wayne, thank you for your reply, I forgot to mention I am using Send Post Data option for my form, I changed the value for the warning from "Please wait" to "One second please..." when I hit the submit button I can see the "One second please" message on the button but then I see a page that says:

    "Please wait while we redirect you..." and the website shows the following URL


    That "Please wait while we redirect you..." is the message I would to change for something else.

    I hope you can help me with me

    Hi again

    I may be wrong but I doubt that message can be changed by users. However, I will submit a ticket on this and one of our developers will let you know if this is possible.

    Thank you again Wayne.

    The reason why I would like to change that message is because my websites and forms are in spanish, I would like the people who visits that websites to be able to see everything in spanish.

    I guess it would be a good option to have the possibility to select the language for that message to be displayed.

    I know it is not a very important feature but I would like to be able to have it, anyways I thank you for your assitance which I find very useful, and your service which is working just fine for me.

    Thank You

    Yes, I quite agree that it would be useful to have the ability to easily change it. I have submitted the ticket. So someone will let you know via this thread if it's possible to change it.

    Incidentally, have you tried clicking the language button at the bottom of the form builder to see if that might help?

    Hi there,

    I've tried replicating your issue on our end and noticed the condition that you've made. From what I understand, you're trying to send post data to translate the form and make the entered data in the text field as default. Instead of using conditions, you can try the attached illustrations.

    In your form builder, under "Setup & Embed" tab, click "Thank You". Then select "Thank you message".

    Delete your default message then enter the desired message.

    And delete your condition of redirecting the form.

    Hope this helps!

    If you have further issues, please feel free to contact us, we will be more than glad to assist you on anything.

    Hi, let me explain you what I am doing with my form:

    I am going to use 2 forms, form A and form B, when somebody submits form A it will redirect to form B and copy-paste some data from form A, that is why I am using the post option, while redirecting from form A to form B it shows a message in english, which belongs to the page 


    That is the message I would to to change from "Please wait while we redirect you..." to "Por favor espere..."
    Thank You for your help
