Tips for using Lead Capture Forms with Wix
When integrating a LeadOutcome Lead Capture Form with a Wix site, there are a couple of issues you may encounter.

1.  Wix has a character limit on the HTML for the Lead Capture Forms.  The Lead Capture Forms will often exceed that limit, so your code will not copy completely, leading to your form not being complete.

2.  The redirect URL you set up for your Lead Capture Form will appear within an iFrame on a Wix page.  You will likely want to have it redirect to a new tab.

Both of these issues are easily addressed.

Character Limits
To fix this issue, you can use a free online tool that removes white spaces, and thus reduces your character count.
1.  Go to:  http://www.textfixer.com/tools/remove-white-spaces.php
2.  Scroll down to the blue section labeled Remove Extra Whitespace or Tabs
3.  Copy your Lead Capture Form code into the first white box
4.  Click the Replace Whitespaces button, and your new code will appear in the box below the button
5.  Copy that new code to use in your Wix page

Redirect URL
To change the form so that the redirect URL opens in a new tab you will need to manually edit the HTML code.  It's easier than it sounds!  Just follow these directions:

1.  Within your Wix account, click on Edit Site for your page
2.  Click on the Lead Capture Form, and the HTML Settings will pop up
3.  Do a search for the word "capture" and find this piece of code...
 <form class="lo-form" name="captureForm"
4.  Between the first two words, "form" and "class", add this piece of code...
target="_blank"
So the end result looks like this (the edit shown in red for emphasis only)...
<form target="_blank" class="lo-form" name="captureForm"
5.  Click the Update button, and then you can test your form to make sure it redirects correctly.
