    Please follow these steps:

    1. First get the full source code of your form. To do that:
    a. Open Setup & Share tab on toolbar.
    b. Click on Embed Form.
    d. Click on Source Code.

    2. Look for the first  

    tag and insert thhe following code: 


    so that it becomes:

    <form class="jotform-form" action="http://www.jotform.com/submit.php" method="post" name="form_10424741277" id="10424741277" accept-charset="utf-8" onSubmit="window.open ('http://www.example.com/example.htm','mywindow','width=400,height=200')">

    The highlighted numbers represent the Form ID, so change it accordingly. While the URL http://www.example.com/example.htm represents the page you want to pop up (i.e. Thank You message) once the Submit button is clicked.


    We hope you find this information helpful. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    I can't edit the source code, sorry but i didn't get it.

    First i went to the tab Set Up & Embed (cuz i think it has changed).

    After I clicked on the Embed Form and then Source. But there isn't a way to put any code there. Could you please tell me what's wrong with my steps? Thx in advance.

    1. Copy your form source code

    2. Open a Notepad or something else that you were able to edit the code

    3. Paste the code into Notepad, etc.

    4. Follow/Apply the code's that moonzkie posted above

    5. Re-embed your form code into your website using the updated codes then delete browsing cache and cookies

    Hope this helps.
