Why can't I fill in the fields to create my form?Asked by dkruzel on February 22, 2013 at 12:15 PM
I'm using the event registration form template, but can't get type into the fields using either Chrome or Internet Explorer, what's going on? :(
Please help me asap!
PS- I had made "contact me" forms a while ago with no problems at all....
Your form is working fine on my end upon checking. Perhaps you need to click on the Preview button first to try out the Form.
Feel free to contact us again if you need further assistance.
For some reason, your response came out empty. Can you please response using this link? http://jotform.me/answers/184043-why-can-t-I-fill-in-the-fields-to-create-my-form
I still can't get any numbers or letters to fill in my form to set the date, etc.????
I'm on a 2nd different computer and it still doesn't work... how do I check to see if it's "java script" enabled?
Does this also happen when using Firefox?
Are you trying to enter information while having the form openned on edit mode?
or are you trying to fill out the form by opening the form's URL on your browser?
The second option is the correct way to do this. you can not fill out a form on the builder.
To fill out your form, simply click on the link bellow:
if you are on your builder, simply click on the "Preview" button at the top left of your builder. You can choose the "Open in a new tab option" if you wish.
I hope this helps!
Jefrey, we don't use Firefox
Eduardo, I'm tying to create the dates and location of the event necessary for the registration form, I'm not trying to fill out the form as a consumer...
Any other ideas, guys? :( Or did I just choose the wrong form to have people fill in?
The fields that you are trying to use are supposed to stay blank for users to fill.
If you are looking to include instructions or un-editable content, please try using the Free Text HTML field under the power tab on the left of the builder.
Please give that a try and let us know if it helps!
