    Multiple Headings in payment screen

    Asked by ceramicarts on October 17, 2011 at 07:34 AM

    Is there a way to include other headings. Example below shows Michael Harbridge Recordings. We have another 8 artist in which we would like to include in the listing, only they would be separated by a Heading similar to the one below.

    Hello.

    While that feature isnt available in the paypal processor itself. 

    If you have the ability to download the source code, edit the HTML, then upload it to your webserver its relatively straightforward to add extra headings amongst the paypal options.

    As an overview of what I would do:

    I would complete the full list of paypal options first. Then download the source code.

    You download the source here:

     

     

    You would then need to unzip the downloaded file, and inspect the .html file in a text editor. 

    All you really need to do is identify where you want to place your new heading & drop in some code:

    <label class="form-label-left" id="label_12" for="input_12">2nd list Recordings </label>

    by the way of an example: I added a new sub heading at the end of a cloned version of your form. 

     

    You could then inspect the weppage(form) locally, then when you are happy with the results upload it to your webserver.

    my example looks like this -> http://pamppi.info/jotform-testing/ceramacarts.html

    Now I realise this is pretty complicated procedure, but we will do our best to help along the way if you do decide to go this route.

    I have a question. Is your form embedded in another webpage?

    Thanks I will give this a try. Yes, the code is embedded in another webpage using your iframe feature.

    OK. We are going have to change the iFrame embed code a bit.

    itll look a bit like this:

     

    <iframe allowtransparency="true" src="//mysite.com/myformlocation.html" frameborder="0" style="width:100%; height:1230px; border:none;" scrolling="no">

    </iframe>

     

    But get the form tailored to how you want it to look on a page on your website, then we'll sort out the embed code for you. 

    This process is a little long winded, but it'll serve as a good learning tool which should in the long run, help you get more out of JotForm & web forms generally. 

    Just let us know if you get stuck anywhere along the way. We're happy to help.

    Great, will give it a try and let you know when finished. We will be adding a new line every week. Will we have to re-create this procedure every week... meaning adding all of the headings again, every time we add to this form? Any chance of adding this feature right in the payment screen?

    What do you mean by adding a new line? 

    If you are adding a new option in the payment wizard, yes, unfortunately, you would have to repeat the majority of the process again. 

    Obviously, this an imperfect solution and an ardous process for something which is on the face appears so simple. I will pass your feature request onto the developers, I just have to say that they get 100s of requests every week & have to priortise certain requests over others, which, understandly frustrates some users who feel their request is being dealt with quickly enough. 

    Also, Have you considered creating a different form for each artist? with some kind of link for each particular artist?

    Yes, we would be adding a new entry every week. Yes, we thought of creating a form for each artist, however the customers are wishing to have the complete list on one checkout, not 10 different forms, makes sense! Understanding you have 100 of new requests each week, any time frame if/when this might be considered? Thanks as always!

    So, you would like to add headings to the product list. We have added this as a "Nice to do" feature request. So, you shouldn't expect it to be implemented in any time soon. If your form was not being changed a lot, the best solution would have been to simply use the full form source code and edit it on your site. But, since you are changing the product list all the time, I'll suggest some hacks:

    One possible solution might be to use CSS content to inject the text into your list using JotForm's Inject CSS feature

    Another possible solution might be to use product images feature to add heading to the text as an images.
