    Is there any way to show what page on our website the form was sent from?

    Asked by JAYSPrinting on February 04, 2015 at 03:39 AM

    Hi there,

    We have a form that is duplicated over 60 pages. We would like to know if there is any way to indicate from which page the form was sent, as the form relates to a template specific to the page it was sent from.

    Please see the application here - http://www.jaysprinting.ie/printing/personal/wedding/wedding-stationery/watercolour/index.html

    Best regards,
    Jamie

    It's easy, BUT it's a lot of work...
    - Duplicate your form 60 times
    - Name them accordingly to your webpages
    - In the e-mail section, change the subject accordingly as well...

    Good luck! :-)

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for your response. Yup I know that I can duplicate the form, but this is what I was trying to avoid. I thought there might be a way to capture the page title or something in the form, to avoid having to duplicate the form, as if the form ever changes there will be a lot to update.

    Best regards

    @PeterNoblesse

    Wow, that's a tedious job! :)

    @JAYSPrinting

    You can use referrer widget. http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/get_referrer

    This will grab the website URL where the form is embedded, so it's easier to know which page the submission came from. 

    If you're embedding the form using iframe, use this workaround. http://www.jotform.com/help/287-Include-Referrer-in-form-within-IFRAME

    Thank you!
