    Stopping forward slashes in email hyperlinks


    An extra condition can be added to prevent users from entering http:// (or https://). To illustrate, test this clone of your form and you'll see that once either http:// or https:// is entered, a reminder is displayed and the submit button becomes hidden. If you clone the form, you'll notice three things that are different from the original form:

    1. It has an extra element (the reminder)

    2. Its injected CSS has two extra rules

    3. There's an extra condition

    If you would like further help with this, please let us know.
