Form Decode: Specify the Accepted Page

What is Accepted page

Accepted page refers to a page which is shown to confirm the acceptance of Form Decode data being sent.

Normally, a simple page as shown above is used as an Accepted page, but you can show any page by specifying a file for the page.

Change the Accepted page

Specify a file

The file specified with the VALUE attribute can be shown as Accepted page by specifying _accept_html in the NAME attribute in the <INPUT> tag. Files specified with the VALUE attribute could specify an HTML file (with extensions html or htm) or an image file (gif, jpg, etc.)

If Accepted page file is placed in a different folder with Form Decode HTML file, the VALUE attribute has to be written as a relative path.

Please note that _accept_html cannot be specified for SSL server. Make sure to specify with _accept_url.

Specify a URL

<input type="hidden" NAME="_accept_url" VALUE="any URL">

By specifying _accept_url for the NAME attribute in <INPUT>, the URL specified with the VALUE attribute will be shown as the Accepted page.

It may not be shown depending on the browser (uses HTTP’s Location:).
