    Hello boidy,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that when you add a hyperlink in your form's thank you message, extra slash is added?

    I am unable to replicate the issue you are having. I added an URL in the thank you page and it seems to work as expected. Please check the screenshot below:

     

    Please share the URL you are trying to add in your thank you message and we will take a look or try to replicate the issue.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Hello boidy,

    What you are trying to do is not possible. Please be noted that {edit_link} is not an URL so when you add it in "Link URL" it automatically adds the "/" before that. The output of {edit_link} is actually an URL with clickable link text as "Edit Submission".

    If you want to display "CLICK HERE" instead of "Edit Submission", you will have to construct your own edit link URL of your submission. The edit link can be constructed as mentioned below:

    http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formID=YOUR_FORM_ID&sid=SUBMISSION_ID&mode=edit

    YOUR_FORM_ID should be the ID of your form. This will be static text. In your case the value should be 50245849588974.

    SUBMISSION_ID should be the submission id and you should add the following value :  {id}

    Your final edit link URL should be :  http://submit.jotformpro.com/form.php?formID=50245849588974&sid={id}&mode=edit

    Please check the screenshot below on how you should add this in your form's thank you message: 

     

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
