    Required fields are being bypassed

    Asked by guest_23027404468047 on October 29, 2012 at 07:51 PM


    I am having a problem with my form.

    ALL the fields are set as required, but it will allow the form to be submitted without an error or warning when only the top 3 fileds are completed. All the drop downs too are set as required but left as they are by default (Choose One) the form still submits.

    Reading the forum I have seen many posts referencing the same problem and the common answer seems to be to embed the code using the iframe method, so I tried this and was still able to bypass all the drop downs.

    Please can anyone advise? This form is for a client and is of no use to them unless all fields are completed.

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You will need to change selected option from 'Choose One' to 'blank'.

    Unfortunately, your custom 'Choose One' option is considered as filled answer.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We would be happy to help.
