How do I create a custom message for form submissions?

Follow the instructions below to make a custom message for site viewers to receive upon submitting a form:
  1. First you will need to create a new page in the Pages manager.  Be sure to set the “Add link to site menu” selection to "No".
  2. Put a word or phrase in the shortcut field of the page options (i.e. thankyou).
  3. Type your custom message into the content area.  It is okay to put pictures, link, and most any other type of content here, it works just like a regular page.
  4. Save and Exit.
  5. Create a new page for your form or open the page where your form is, place your cursor anywhere inside of the dotted red form box, then click the 'Hidden Field' button Hidden Field button on the editor toolbar.  The name of the hidden field should be “returnURL” and the value should be "http://www.yourdomainname.com/custommessagepageshortcut" (no quotation marks) or any other URL of your choice.
  6. Save your form page and you're done!
  7. That's all there is to it.
