Salesforce Forms on Wix

January 4, 2019

 

As a Wix Designer, I find that many of my clients have form needs to tie into their existing systems, such as Salesforce. But, if you want to put a Salesforce Form on Wix, you may have noticed that they look ugly if used right out of the box. To enhance their look, use CSS styles to beautify the fields and colors. 

 

Plus, as you have to link to a Thank you page upon form submission, I find that this is a frequent problem with third-party embedded forms on Wix websites—the form will reload the thank you page into the Wix HTML iframe instead of the mother page. This is ugly as it loads the entire webpage into the iframe so it will show the menu/header/etc duplicatd. Not ideal.

 

Did you know there is an easy way to have a Wix HTML iframe form, upon submission, to refresh the whole page with the thank you URL the form sends users to? 

 

You simply need to add a TARGET to the form action code. Below is a snippet of the revised code, in which I simply added: target=“_top” 

<form action="https://webto.salesforce.com/servlet/servlet.WebToLead..." target=“_top” method="POST">
 

With this target=“_top” code shown,  the form refreshes the whole page when submitted rather in just the iframe.
