I need to redirect people who submit a form to another website. How do I do that? Currently It looks like there is only one option which is to manually enter some text. I NEED it to redirect otherwise it will be messy.

A hackish way:

Subclass UserDefinedForm and UserDefinedForm_Controller.

In SubClass_Controller, basically c+p the process method from UserDefinedForm_Controller, except replace:

$custom = $this->customise(array(
                        "Content" => $this->customise( array( 'Link' => $data['Referrer'] ) )->renderWith('ReceivedFormSubmission'),
                        "Form" => " ",

                return $custom->renderWith('Page');



I think that will work. (:

I just made a page type with a customisable redirect URL.

Just extract, and upload RedirectForm.php to mysite/code/ then run db/build?flush=1

And since attaching didn't seem to work:
