    Adding a text link

    Asked by sharynfuller on January 07, 2015 at 09:24 AM

    On my contact form (Blue Envelope Style) I have a non-required "Testimonial" box. I would like to have some text in there to explain. I would like to say this, "Please go to this link on Zillow to register a review = http://www.zillow.com/reviews/write/?s=X1-ZUzj6qtfbp7409_4lr3f (and perhaps hide the URL in the text) to write a testimonial about your experience working with me. I will then post it on this website. Thank you so much!

    Can this be done, and if so how?

    You can do that by adding text below the testimonial field. Click the "Text" under form tools then click "Edit HTML".

    Now you need to edit the text and create a link.

    Here are the steps for adding a link: 

    1. Highlight the text

    2. Click the "Insert/ Edit Link" button then a small window will pop up

    3. Paste the link on the Link URL

    4. Cick the "Insert" button

    5. Press the "Complete" button


    It should turn out like this:


    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for the response but I am unable to follow your directions.
    Please see below for what happens:

    As you can see I am not offered the link option. Plus when I am done it
    appears that this text is below the testimonial box, not inside. Please
    advise, thank you!
    Warm regards,
    ​PS - Referrals are ALWAYS appreciated!

    I apologized for the delay of my response, we encountered a problem on our systems so you reply just came today.

    Unfortunately, there is no image uploaded in your post. Can you please share the screenshot again. Here's a guide on how to upload or attach images on your post (https://www.jotform.com/answers/277033-How-to-add-screenshots-images-to-questions-in-support-forum)

    I checked your form and I can see that you used "Text box" instead of just "Text". Sorry for that. Please try it again, this time please use "Text".

    I also created a demo form (http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50195174755965). You can just clone it if you like.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!
