    Is it possible that when I press "submit" on the first form that it does not show JotForm

    Asked by LuxVideoProd on October 08, 2016 at 10:04 PM

    Hi, I have a form that sends data to a php file that populates a DB. 

    Is it possible that when I press "submit" on the first form that it does not show "https://submit.jotform....." which could make the client nervous seeing it's data going through a 3rd party for validation..

    thx.

     

    redirect custom jotform

    There are 3 options I can suggest that can achieve this.

    #1 You can redirect the form first to your own Thank You page.

    User guide: Redirecting-Users-to-a-Different-Page

    #2 You can also use the form full source code and modify the source code to hide the redirection or validation script.

    User guide: How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    #3 Use your own custom domain to make it appear everything is on your website.

    User guide: How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform

    Hope this help. Let us know how it goes.

    Thanks.

    Hi, I went with option #3... but I can't edit the link ... 

    this is the link I see..

     

    https://form.jotform.com/62784308635261

    and when I click on it to modify it it gives me...

    https://form.jotform.com/LuxVideoProd/abbvie-scavenger-hunt-group-1-login

     

    but I can only select and modify whatever comes after .../LuxVideoProd/

     

    thx!

    That is actually not option #3, option 3 allows you to use your web hosting provider's DNS to somehow direct the JotForm form link on your website's domain, please check this guide again: https://www.jotform.com/help/144-How-to-use-Custom-Domains-with-Jotform 

    I believe what you are trying to do is using a custom URL name for your link which is presented on this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/261-How-to-Create-a-Custom-URL-of-a-Form. You cannot change the whole link of the custom URL, only the last part.

     

    If you do not want your users to see the https://submit.jotform.com, you can just simply embed the form using the iFrame embed code in your website's page. With that, they won't see any redirection on the address bar. Is your PHP file the target "Thank You" page? Or we can run it at the background silently after submission? If so, you can just put the PHP path file using WebHook.

    I hope that helps.

    I already changed the cname in my DNS... so where exactly do I change the form name? in the submit link ? i have copied the code to dreamweaver to add session functionalities...

    so when I press submit on the fake "login" form it sends the data to another php script that populates a DB and allows the form "quiz"... when the quiz is submitted, then the data is sent to another script to write the results to a DB..

    Would my forms still be responsive if I would use an iFrame?

    Thx for your help..

    If I understand you correctly, you are following this guide that helps you use your own domain name for your forms .

    This is how the custom domain looks like: http://forms.mycompanydomain.com/form/1234567890.
    Here is how the custom URL looks like: https://form.jotform.com/username/form-title

     

    So, are you using the custom domain or the custom URL? If you are using a custom URL, you just need to change the form title. Please refer to this guide on How-to-Change-the-Title-or-Name-of-your-Form.

    When the quiz is submitted, then the data is sent to another script to write the results to a DB..

    You can forward the submissions to your own database using PHP. Please take a look on this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP.

    Would my forms still be responsive if I would use an iFrame?

    Yes, the forms should still be responsive even if it is embedded using the Iframe.

     

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
