    HTML Text box will not update

    Asked by sugashocphotography on January 18, 2014 at 02:07 PM

    I have tried to update one of my HTML text boxes and it will not update. I save the form, and click preview and it goes back to the original text.

    I am having the same problem as well, since about 6 hours ago. There is at least one other person with the same problem. I have not submitted a ticket yet.

    I'm having the same problem. Something is surely not working for JotForm's end.

    I might have found the problem. I had a "<hr" (horizontal rule) tag, that I put in via the text (html) editor, that though it looked fine on my form, I think the code made other parts of the form not work right. I removed the the html that had the "<hr" tag in it and replaced it with a form collapse and so far it all appears to be working. Do any of you have an <hr tag embedded into your form at all?

    Are the changes related to Text (html) boxes? If so, kindly accept our apology. There was a problem about it a few hours ago, but that has been fixed since.

    If not, kindly describe how the problem can be recreated, and we'll be happy to find a solution for you.
