    I'm trying to edit a configurable list, but each time I try to delete the old data and add new data, the old info remains.

    Just to confirm, are you editing the submitted data or editing the configurable list widget itself?

    I checked the widget and I can see that the fields displayed are just the same fields you have set up from within the widget's settings panel.


    Kindly share a screencast when editing/deleting/adding data so we can be on the same page and see exactly what you are referring to.

    Hi Vanessa,

    I should have clarified which configurable list I was referencing. I'm including a screenshot showing the edits I've made within the widget vs. what is showing on the form. Specifically, the old language, "When and how much," remains instead of the two new fields I've tried to create, "When" and "How Much."1624372324_60d1f464dd307_jotform configu

    I can see that these labels are added using the widget's custom CSS, therefore modifying the list itself doesn't change anything:


    To adjust the custom CSS to fit your new settings, please do the following:

    • Remove this code:

    tbody tr td:nth-child(15)::before {

     content: 'When and how much?';


    • Add this code:

    tbody tr td:nth-child(15)::before {

    content: 'When?';


    tbody tr td:nth-child(16)::before {

    content: 'How much?';


    • Increment the numbers in the following selectors and click Update Widget:


    This should edit the widget in your desired way.

    Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

    Thank you!
