    Block content on page(s) until form is filled out?

    Asked by OptronicsHD on February 09, 2016 at 02:56 PM

    Can you create a form that will block content on a page until the form is filled out. Once the user submits their information, they can then see the content on the page. FYI, I'm using Wordpress.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks, David

    If you are asking that a JotForm form blocks access to the rest of the webpage where the form is on, unfortunately our form can't block the loading of the rest of your website, though you can indeed set up something similar.

    You can set up your desired "blocked" page as a thank you page of your form - so only users that fill out your form are redirected to the "blocked" page. You can see more about how to set up a thank you page in the following guide:


    For this to work, you would need to have a workflow where you direct your users to the form, and you do not publish the link to your "blocked" page anywhere else on your website. Once a user submits the form, they are redirected to the thank you page you set up on the form, which would be the blocked page.

    I believe this would serve as a suitable substitute to actually blocking the page. Please let us know if you need further clarifications, David, and we'll be happy to help.
