    Hi thank you so much for getting this fixed.  But what went wrong?  This could have been a real disaster if I had started asking people to start completing this form.

    Best,  Michael

    I just found out that the Form Separators widget was set as the email recipient of the email autoresponder in your form which probably created a conflict and caused the issue. Nevertheless, we are glad that the issue of your form is fixed. And if you have other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.

    Thanks but this is really alarming as the form is already in use.  This sitaution is simply unacceptable.  Please advise me what I need to do.  Will people still be able to submit when the form is like this?

    Thanks

    We would like to apologize for any inconvenience.

    I have checked your form from the builder page and I see that the issue is no longer happening.

    I have a hunch that the issue you are experiencing is caused by the email autoresponder in the form.

    Oddly, there are XML codes in the content of the email autoresponder when you check its source code.

    I would recommend that you delete the existing email autoresponder in your form and add a new one.

    If, in any case, you still encounter the same issue after doing that, please do not hesitate to let us know.

    Your form will continue on working. It's just that you will not be able to edit it at least until we've fixed the issue.

    I am the engineer to whom your ticket was assigned, and as our colleague has mentioned, the problem is caused by the xml codes in your custom thank you page.

    Did you copy your thank you text directly from another application, such as MS Word perhaps?

    Please help.

    We have removed the autoresponder email that is causing this bug on the form builder.

    Please kindly re-add the autoresponder, but this time DO NOT copy directly from Microsoft Word. Save the document as html first by doing Save as type > webpage, filtered.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you.  I copied my signature sign-off from Outlook and this must have caused the problem.  I have deleted and replaced all the automated emails and the Thank You screen so hopefully this will be OK now.

    I think Jotform should include some guidance about this in the relevant part of the form builder so other people don't make this mistake.
