    My form uses a custom thank you page rather than a thank you message, which allows me to measure conversions in Google Analytics. When a visitor completes the form from our FB fan page tab, they get redirected to the thank you page on our website, which I dont like. Is it possible to set up a conditional thank you where: 1) when the form is completed from Facebook the user sees a customized thank you message--staying in FB and 2)when the user completes the form on our website they user goes to a customized thank you page on our website? My FB app URL's do have additional characters (/?FB=true) that might be used for establishing a condition.

    I believe you should be able to do this:

    Take a look at this form:


    Thats a conditional , a thankyou message is shown if the 'facebook' field = true, and a redirect to a URL if 'facebook' not equal to true. 

    My conditions look like this:


    NOTE: That text field can also be a hidden field. 

    Are you already populating a field in your form with the ?FB=true parameters at the end of your form URL? 

    My tests at adding this type of functionality suggest that the text or hidden text feilds that you are looking to populate via the URL need to be at least 3 characters long. 

    This may present a problem in your case. 

    Please advise on that potential issue.
