    I can still select multiple options in a checkbox field whe the maximum is set to 1

    Asked by JFedGMW on March 30, 2017 at 01:24 PM

    I've just tried this but I can still check both checkboxes. This pertains to the optional question: "This contribution is a tribute." Here's a link to the form:

     I've already set the limit to a maximum of 1.

    Though it checkbox fields will allow for selecting multiple options when the maximum is set to 1, there will be an error given when doing so:

    As long as this error is active, the form will not allow for completing the submission.
