    How do I include checkboxes which don't default to 'checked'?

    Hi Peter,

    It may be better to hide the text of any option on your checkbox with CSS rather than leaving the option text blank.

    I have a feeling this is what is causing this problem on your form. 


    I realise your form is currently live on Facebook, so we dont want to touch that form to do some tests.

    Are you able to clone your form and leave some text on one of the options for your checkboxes?
