    Can we add html code to the form warnings?

    Asked by jfeuchter1 on February 22, 2016 at 01:09 PM



    I was wondering if its possible to add HTML code to form warnings. More specifically to the warning where no duplicated E-Mail is allowed? This is cause I would like to return the user to the page where the form is embedded but with a parameter to allow the user to go to the step after the form. I tried adding the anchor directly on the warning text but the system just takes it out. Any idea what I could do? :P

    I am sorry to inform you, but this is not possible to inject HTML and scripts into the Form Warnings. You can only edit the warning message text.

    Any suggestions on what I could do to maybe detect if the user ended up in that page in the embedded form ?

    Do you mean you want to detect if the user visits the embedded form in your website? Perhaps the form analytics feature may prove useful for your requirement. Simply follow this link to try it out: http://www.jotform.com/form-analytics/ 

    If you are referring to another issue, please let us know so we can better assist you.

    Hehe sorry let me give you some background. What Im trying to do is a pop up on a contest page which has the embedded form from jotforms. This pop up is a must fill for the people to go forward to the contest. But if they've already singed in, they will put the same email. What I need is to detect if the user got to the warning page of the embedded form to either give him the opportunity to close the pop up or refresh the page to try and fill in with another email. I dont know if this clarifies why I want to detect if they got to the warning message on the embedded form? :P

    Unfortunately, there is no way to add any modifications to the server side validation warning page at the moment.
