    Currently designing my first JotForm which is a simple contact us form.  I have included an accept T&Cs checkbox but I can't seem to get the hyperlink to work.  Can you let me know what I'm doing wrong?

    All standard fields and widgets are unable to contain any HTML. This is a recent adjustment we have made to increase security. Specifically against XSS attacks.

    The only exceptions are the text field and the terms and conditions widget.

    You should use the terms and conditions widget instead of a checkbox:


    Or if you prefer you could use the short scrollable terms widget instead:

    Thank you - the terms and conditions widget should work fine.  Could you help me with the CSS code to a) change the font type and size and b) the colour of the hyperlink text.

    Here's some CSS to help you get started quickly:

    color: black !important;

    font-family: Serif !important;
    font-size: 20px;

    Here the hyperlink is black. You can specify any colour name from this reference:


    The font is changed to Serif.

    You can use any of the fonts listed here:


    If you require a larger selection of fonts this is possible with Google fonts:


    And the font size is twenty pixels.

    It will look like this:
