    I would like to place a button on the bottom of the form that says "Return Home" to re-direct a visitor back to the homepage of my website:  www.paintedpixeldesign.com should they elect to not finish filling out the form.

    Right now they have to use the back arrow on the browser, which works, but I think it would be more convenient if they could simply click a button to return home if they elect not to finish filling out the form.  I've figured out how to change the text on a submit button, but only seem to be able to link it to an e-mail address, not a web address.  Can you help?

     

    My e-mail:  paintedpixeldesign@gmail.com

     

    Thx,

    brad

    Hi,

    Using our Free Text (HTML) tool is the best way for you to add custom button and link the button (Return Home) to the homepage of your website.

    Hope this help.

    Please do the following:

    1. Load the form in question into the form builder and click Free Text (HTML)

    2. With the free text element you just inserted still selected, click the HTML button in the form builder's toolbar and insert your link:

    (Click image to zoom to actual size)


    3.
    When done, click OK and save the form

    Injected CSS can be used to position the link and change its appearance. (Web developer tools like Firebug can be used to find out the appropriate selector to style the link.)

    If you would like clarification on anything, please let us know.

    Actually, now that I've read Brad's post more closely, have a look at this solution I recently posted.
