I have a web collect form that will be used in a light box modal for email capture. On the form submission I have a function to hide the div that contains the form and display the thank you div but it still redirects to an ExactTarget "Thank You" page before it has a chance to display the div. If I go back, the thank you div is displayed but I need to stop the redirect altogether. This there a way to stop this?

Here is an example of where the redirect is happening:

<form action="http://cl.exct.net/subscribe.aspx?lid=ExampleListID" method="post" id="signup" onsubmit="switchVisible()">

Here is the documentation on the SFMC/ExactTarget Web Collect functionality.

You can specify the Thank You and Error URLs -- if that helps.

You don't have to do a traditional form POST with a redirect. You can do it all with AJAX and parse the results.

    Adam Spriggs, do you have any example code available. I thought I had it but now I am getting this error: XMLHttpRequest cannot load cl.exct.net/subscribe.aspx?LID=ExampleLID. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'null' is therefore not allowed access. and due to this not submitting, I still don't know if my success div will display. Thank you! – Stacy Sep 10 '15 at 15:10
  • Here is what I have: $("#signup").submit(function() { var data = { "SubAction":"sub_add_update", "First Name":$("#firstName").val(), "Last Name":$("#lastName").val(), "Email Address":$("#email").val(), "Child Birthday or Expected Due Date":$("#childBday").val(), "thx":" Backup Success URL" }; $.post("http://cl.exct.net/subscribe.aspx?LID=ExampleLID",data,function switchVisible() { console.log(data); }); return true; }); – Stacy Sep 10 '15 at 15:44

In the end of your function, you should to avoid the default action - Submit, use Jquery:

function yourFunction(event) {
    // Your codes here.

Hope can help you.

  • thanks, but this did not work fully to submit the form and return the success div. – Stacy Sep 10 '15 at 15:18
  • hum, so you try this: function yourFunction(event) { event.preventDefault(); // Your codes here.</br> return false; // Cancel action. } – Leisure Sep 14 '15 at 3:50

Add your landing form page URL as your success URL.
