    form text area default text not holding (all of a sudden, started today)

    Asked by barefoottours on December 12, 2016 at 04:38 PM

    today we have an old form that stopped working. and no one edited it.

    our form fields (textareas) have default text in them. when the "email type" drop down menu is selected, these text areas show up. 

    they just stated showing up blank. i see the text area filled out in the back end. but when i run the form, the default text is removed..

     

    how can i make this default text hold.

    this form has been working for years. now it just stopped as of this morning. ( and no one logged in to change anything)

     

    did you guys run an update?

     

    please help.
