Once a form is submitted, I want the form to clear but the user stay on the page where they submitting the form.

Hi rodsdesign,

I guess that you'll need to capture the current page url and then use it as a redirect url in ChronoForms. I recall that there was some discussion of this a couple of weeks ago - but I don't remember if it was about Modules.

Hey Bob,

yep - can capture the current page - no worries... but its the URL redirection I'm struggling with.

I tried putting:
<input type="hidden" name="referring" value="<?php echo $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']; ?>">

as a field then

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=<?php $_POST[referring]; ?>">

in the on submit after email box... didn't work😟

in the on submit after email i put:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="0; URL=<?php echo $_POST[referring]; ?>">

that did the trick... sorry to post the question before I really worked on it...

thanks Bob

Hi rodsdesign,

Great, glad you solved it.

Just for future information, there are two other ways of doing the redirect. Joomla has a redirect command that will do an immediate redirect
global $mainframe;
$mainframe->redirect( $url, [$message,] [$message type]);
So in this case you could write
$url = JURI::Base().DS; // I'm not certain about the DS??
$url .= getString('referring', 'index.php', 'post'); // add a default and some validation
$mainframe->redirect( $url, "Thanks for your submission", 'info');

ChronForms also has a redirect URL that you can set
$rows[0]->redirecturl = 'some url';
This doesn't allow you to send a message but has the advantage that it won't redirect until the email & database processing is complete so you cam set it anywhere in the OnSubmit code boxes (even in the email template).
