Best Form Editor

    Asked on March 13, 2011 at 05:28 AM


    First, I want to congratulate you, for developing the best form editor I have ever tried (I'm a researcher in industrial psychology field, so I can almost say that I've tried them all) :)

    In last few days i'm having some trouble with saving updates to my existing forms. When I make a change in my form and click Save button, the swirly thingy just keeps going on and on and on (yesterday it went on and on for few hours, and it still didn't save anything). I've tried also saving right after every little change, so there wouldn't be a lot of data to process, but it didn't help.

    I really need to finish my forms in time, so I'll be glad if you could help me :)


    Thank you,

    Hi ursalutman

    There does seem to be some sort of glitch. I logged into your account and made a change to the untitled form: I inserted a header field and replaced the default text. Seeing that it appeared to autosave, I closed the window. However, when I visited the form's page, although it now had the previosly non-existent header, the text was the default: "Click to edit this text..."

    I then made a second attempt and after inserting the fields presently displayed if you visit the form's address, I clicked the "Save" button and logged out of your account, as opposed to just closing the window.

    I'll notify the development team for you and see if we can determine what's causing that problem. Thanks for letting us know and enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

    After deleting and then adding some questions I noticed that it refuses to save my updates every time after I have more than 200 questions in a form (it doesn't matter in what format they are presented).

    Is there some kind of limitation to that? If it is, is there any way to overpass it, beacuse I really need to have at least 220 questions in my form.


    Thank you,

    Hi ursalutman,

    How about adding a condition to change the custom Thank You page so that the user will be redirected to the URL of another form? You could even change the text of your submit button to something like "Next" or "Page 2". What do you think?

    I am experiencing the same problem with the form not saving after an edit using Firefox. I have no problems editing and saving forms using Google Chrome or Safari.
