tip to add a link without redirecting to page (2 posts)

    Just passing along a tip! I have over the past year played with all the coding in the additional settings to automatically send someone to a new page... say to download their link after getting them to sign up. What I didn't like is that you had to add another page. Well here is a way to add the link without even going to another page.

    Add the link in the Messages sent successfully section (first line under messages). Instead of just entering:
    "Your message was sent successfully. Thank you!"
    You could add something like:
    "You have successfully registered for our FREE download. Please see instructions below<br/> to save the download. <br/><a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/audio/yourfreemusic.mp3">DOWNLOAD LINK</a> <br/>Thanks.

    Works great and the link pops up to for your clients to use if they fill in the form successfully! I can see where this would work for other types of coding as well.

    well, stonenote, i think you are quite possible a genius! what a brilliant and clever solution!! i have read so many posts where so many people try to solve this problem. (weird that it's even a problem tho - should be a standard and easy step to accomplish) i love that you came at the problem from a completely different angle.
