    I have seen several threads dealing with customers wanting to redirect (in the Thank You) to a custom URL in a new window.

     

    I wish to stay in the same window.

     

    How do I do that?

    Hello seveland,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. 

    When you add a "Custom Thank you URL" in your form and the submit button of your form is clicked, user will be redirected to thank you page in the same window. 

    Please explain your question a bit more in detail and we will surely help you.

    We will wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Ah.  Ok.  

     

    If you go here:  http://winkmeister.net/dbsatn_home1838.html

    and enter the indicated code then submit, a page opens in a new window (Chrome, in my case).

    Hi seveland,

    I am only seeing a new page open when we click on the link directly on your webpage:

    Once the form has been submitted in the new window, it is redirected to your Custom URL in the same window:

    If you would like to form to be opened in the same window, you would need to make the change within your websites code.

    The blank would have to be changed to _self:

    <a target="_blank" href="javascript:void( window.open("http://form.jotform.us/form/52437124442146", "_self"

        scrollbars=yes,

        toolbar=no,

        width=700,

        height=500'))">

    I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.
