    I have gotten a couple of blank responses...

    Asked by jakapla on August 13, 2012 at 02:26 PM

    I am using your form as an RSVP form for my wedding, and while it has worked great most of the time, I have gotten a couple of blank responses where even the required fields are all left blank.. is this a glitch, or is someone trying to use the form and doing it wrong, and the system is letting it though blank?

    The missing submissions are related with a Javascript problem that allow required fields to be able to send on some browsers.

    This problem has been added to our TODO list, it will be solved ASAP.

    Kindest Regards,

    We are having the same troubles on our end. Eagerly awaiting a fix to the problem, as well as wondering whether there will be a way to retrieve information from the blank forms we've received already, or will they need to be re-submitted?

    Thanks for your message. We will update you via this thread if there's any progress about this.


    Please ask them to resubmit their answer. But, take note that blank submission is a no data form, meaning they don't fill the form at all (even fields are set as required). This becomes possible when their browser's javascript is disabled, with this they can easily bypass the required field checks. Don't you worry as this only happen in a very few cases.
