I'm trying to figure out how to make my other website to come up, along with email sent to me as a standard option, once submitter hits SUBMIT button on the form. In a good Yola tradition, I'm looking for a free of charge solution, certainly :)

Hi Ben
I use Jotform for my forms once the submit button has been clicked you can specify a redirect url of your choice, its also very customizable using css and its free with limited submissions.

Hi Ben,

David has offered you a great suggestion.

Another alternative is to add a redirect URL to your Yola Form by adding a bit of HTML code. Here are the steps:

1. Open your Form by clicking on the little Edit button in the upper left hand corner of the widget.
2. Click on the "Settings" tab.
3. In the field available you will see the text your visitor will see when they submit the form. You can paste this code below the text which will cause the form to redirect:

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url=">

"2" is how many seconds it waits before it redirects - you can change this number, "url" is the URL it redirects to, so, replace the URL in the above tag with the one for the site you want to link to.
