Waiting Text is not working with Action POST for external form services like mailchimp

Problem with forms. Waiting Text is not working with Action POST.
If the Action field is empty, then Waiting Text works on the Submit button.


Here is my site Read-Only: LINK
(how to share your site Read-Only link)

I am facing the same issue. Action POST is filled, waiting text filled too, nothing shows when submitting :frowning:

Hi @jellybear and @Stas_Kibe, the waiting text will only show for form submissions made to Webflow, those do not work for post requests to other mail services.

I do not see any read only link shared, so I cannot see the form you are using, here is how to Share a project’s read-only link

You can submit forms to other mail services if you host the site in Webflow and use our built in Zapier integration, then the messages will send first to Webflow and the waiting text will work, and the form will be sent to the mailing service (i.e. mailchimp see https://zapier.com/apps/mailchimp/integrations/webflow/2243/send-webflow-form-data-to-a-mailchimp-list)

I hope this helps
