Thanks a lot!

This helps me:

By default, ChronoForms sets the form Action URL to use a 'Relative' URL - that is, it uses the URL for the current page and adds the form name and event to the query string e.g. &chronoform=form_name&event=submit.

This will work correctly provided that the Joomla! Router knows that the URL needs to be submitted to ChronoForms. When this fails then then the form will not submit.

The first solution to try is to turn the 'Relative URL' setting to 'No'. The setting is in the form HTML (Render form) action in the On Load event in the Designer tab in the form editor.

Hi, i've the same problem with chronoforms 6 and joomla 3.7.5, if i load the form in an article it not work and reload the same page with link /iscrizioni-online.html?chronoform=iscrizioneU12&event=submit but not save.
Where is the option Relative URL' setting to 'No'. The setting is in the form HTML (Render form) action ? i can't find it. This is the only parameter on display section action attached.

Thanks
