    Form is rendering as HTML tags

    Asked by becshall73 on December 14, 2016 at 04:01 AM


    I have a lot of forms, some of which I have been using for over a year, that use the html <nav> tag.  Today I noticed that this is not rendering correctly (see screenshot).

    I haven't changed this form for a while and it was working correctly last time I looked.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    I checked your forms and I was able to replicate the issue. The html <nav> tag isn't properly rendering.

    I will raise this issue on our second level.  But we cannot give you an ETA for when it will be fixed. Rest assured that you will be updated in this thread once there are any updates.

    For the meantime, you can manually delete the <nav> tags so that it will not appear on your forms.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
