    I want to throw up on the Designer Platform.

    Asked by wakinggirl on January 07, 2015 at 01:16 PM

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us the options that existed before the Designer Platform.

    PLEASE return:

    -form width

    -basic templates (the old Default was a charmer!)

    -background color

    -font size/type

    -label width


    I will give you my soul if you return these to us! Hell, I will give you the soul of my first-born!

    I have thousands of forms to manage via my client base. I used Jotform because I could quickly and easily 1) build a form, 2) make it fit into Weebly's drag and drop editor, and 3) make significant changes post-launch without ever touching the website.


    None of that is possible now with the buggy new features.


    With the designer platform, you're assuming that I have MORE time now than I did 2 years ago. That's insane. The web is going FASTER, not slower. You're assuming that I want to customize something as basic as a lead generation form for a cleaning company. You're assuming that the CSS of my form should take precedence over the CSS of the remainder of my site. You're assuming that I want to wait for the Designer Platform to load; because shoot, I must need to take more snack breaks. You're assuming that I want users to be booted OFF a website upon submission of a form, because that is the Default setting of your silly platform.


    Jotform, you have become as relevant as a fax machine.

    Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it.

    Actually, the options you mentioned are still available on the Preferences > Form Styles tab.

    I agree with you about the speed when creating forms. It's much quicker and easier with the old stuff but if you have tried the new one - form designer, you'll pretty much see new features and broader way of customizing your forms. You can also pick over a hundred of themes available on the Theme section. These will also help save time as it's just 1 click and install.

    Please let us know if there's anything else you need help with. Thank you and have a good day!

    How do we get forms to NOT open in a new window upon submission with the theme designer?
