Cannot resubmit forms after pressing back button (Chrome, Safari, MacOS)

If I press the back button after successfully submitting a Gravity Form, then press the back button to try and edit a form and resubmit it, the form’s submit button does not respond (or throw a console error). Refreshing the form fixes the issue, but we would like our users to be able to edit and resubmit our form without having to re-type the entire thing. Is there a workaround for this?

Hi Mandy. I’m afraid using the browser back button and then attempting to resubmit the form will not work.

One workaround would be to offer them a link to “Submit another?” and that is a link to your form. You can use dynamic population to populate the fields by populating them via the query string using this method:

I put an example on my page here that you can try:

The name, email, and phone will be pre-populated if you click the “Yes” button in the confirmation message. I choose not to pre-populate the country for the next submission, but you could pre-populate that if you like.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.
