Forms "Post-Submit" links will not open in a new tab.

Go to solution Solved by creedon,

Recommended Posts

Hello Friends! Ive been looking around on the forum to try and understand why the Form Post-Submit button will not open my linked filed in a new tab. Its openings the file in the current tab taking the patron away from my main site. There is a toggle for the link to open in a new tab, however it will toggle off every time I leave the form post submit settings.

I looked into some CSS, but from what I'm reading... SS sites aren't able to use the previously used CSS because of an update they did to Forms. 

Any help would be great! Thanks

I don't have a solution but an observation after checking your issue out on my test site.

Apparently SS is just ignoring the open in new window/tab setting.

The action appears to be happening on the server side. SS gets the form submission, processes it, and then does the redirect.

There is no link on the page that we can manipulate.

This is kinda what I thought the issue is / would be. Any thoughts on SS actually correcting this?

You can always report the issue to SS but I would not expect a fast fix.
