    Thanks for a great theme.

    I have buttons on a page that open mailchimp registration form in a lightbox. Question is how do I get the thank you page to open in a normal tab, not in the same lightbox?

    Go easy on me – I’m not a programmer ;)

    Thanks legends,


    Hey BennuFoundation,
    Please explain how the thank you page url is passed, from mailchimp or a script on the page?
    I believe that a target=’_blank’ can be added to your data-avia-redirect in your form with jQuery, which would open a new tab on the form summit. I tried for a while but I couldn’t get it quite right.


    But even if this works, it will not close the lightbox popup, so perhaps this isn’t a good solution.
    Please let us know about my question above, and perhaps a admin login will help, and perhaps I will think of a new solution.

    Best regards,


    Thanks for this Mike,
    I really appreciate your help – this has me totally stumped!

    Here’s the flow I’ve created…
    From my webinar landing page

    the button point to open a page containing the mailchimp sign up forms set to open in iframe

    I’ve set the dropdown in the mailchimp signup element to: “Redirect the user to another page”
    I’ve set it to send them to a thank you page

    The problem as you’ve seen is that the thank you page opens in the same lightbox.
    What we want is that when a user submits a form it closes the lightbox and loads the thank you page.

    See below for admin access…
    Thanks again :)


    Thanks for the login, I wanted to give you a update, I have tried a few approaches to this, without luck so far, but I would like to research some more on this.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Best regards,


    Thanks for the update Mike,

    It’s hard to imagine anything being this tough to solve for you guys…

    I read this forum all the time and I’ve seen Kriesi moderators solve so many impossible problems with ease and grace – I believe in you Mike – you got this!

    Thanks again,


    Thanks for the conference, but the solution eluded me, so I asked for some help from the rest of the team.
    Thanks for patience.

    Best regards,


    What’s the latest on this one team?
    We have a mailchimp signup form that opens in a popup and we want the thank you page to open in a new tab not in the same pop up as the form… should be easy eh…!?


    2 weeks guys… I’d love to get an answer to this. Thanks


    Hey team, I know you’re probably busy with getting your theme’s working on WP 5 – thanks for all your great work with that. Also it would be great if we could find a way to get the thank you page opening in a new tab. Thanks


    Hi BennuFoundation,

    Unfortunately, it would require quite some time and customization of the theme to achieve this, so I am sorry to tell you that this is not covered by our support. However, if it’s really important for you to get this done, you can always hire a freelancer to do the job for you :)

    Best regards,
