After clicking on submit button, warning box appears... I don't want it


Recommended Posts

I was able to get this script working, but now when form submit button is clicked the warning

box appears. I only want the warning box if visitor trys to leave, etc. And I don't want the

warning box when they click on submit. Anyone know how to make this so?


var submitted = false;

window.onbeforeunload = function()


window.onbeforeunload = null;


return "Stay here bla bla";


$("#formID").submit(function () {

submitted = true;


<form id="formID" method="post" action="http://site.com">

<input type="hidden" name="first_name" value="" />

<input type="hidden" name="last_name" value="" />

<input type="hidden" name="phone" value="" />


<input class="input_txt" type="text" id="email" name="email" value="Enter your best email..." onfocus="if(this.value==this.defaultValue)this.value='';" onblur="if(this.value=='')this.value=this.defaultValue;" />


<input type="submit" class="btn_get_access" value="Get Instant Access »">



***Apparently, the following code is not working. For one thing I get $ is undefined. Any help would be great.


$("#formID").submit(function () {

submitted = true;

First -- You need to enclose all JavaScript and jQuery in <script> tags; and you also need to include the jQuery library in your page if you intend to use it (looks like that's the case). The fact that $ is undefined indicates your code does not have jQuery properly put in.


If you've already done that, try


if ($('#formID').click()) { return true; }


within and at the beginning your onbeforeunload function.
