    can you explain in more details the "1. Insert a hidden box to your form, name it to something like "referrer" or "website""

    I did it all according this tutorial and I'm still getting only "referrer" text in my form received instead of link

    This is a re-post of a comment on Capture the Page URL Where the Form is Embedded

    You can have the Hidden Box by going to: Power Tools > Hidden Box .

    Embed Code:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.write("<script src=\"http://form.jotform.com/jsform/12340640557?referrer=" + window.location.href + "\"></" + "script>");

    Iframe Code:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    document.write("<iframe allowtransparency=\"true\" src=\"http://form.jotform.com/form/12340640557?referrer=" + window.location.href + "\" frameborder=\"0\" style=\"width:100%; height:529px; border:none;\" scrolling=\"no\">
    </" + "iframe>");

    Simply replace the red line code with your Form URL and the yellow line code with the name of your Hidden Box. For an Iframe code, you can modify the height of the form to suit your websites design.

    If this doesn't help, please provide us the Form ID you are working with? We'll have it checked.

    What is implied only is that if you name your hidden field something else than 'referrer' (for instance 'website', as suggested) this name should also be reflected in the part added to the URL


    So, if you field is named 'website', you add '?website=' instead of '?referrer='.


    This should probably be explained more clearly in the tutorial.
