    Posting Hidden Fields

    Asked by Theron  on February 18, 2014 at 12:18 PM

    Hi there,

    We are posting some hidden fields to our form that are dynamically populated on the page. We've mathed these fields to form fields on the JotForm and added the correct IDs to the input tags in the form. However, the data is not being picked up in the response or notification. We had this working successfully last week, but now it's not working. Any ideas?

    Here's am example - hidden fields are populated prior to display so a firebug inspect will show the populated form and a view source will show the pre-rendered code.

    Can you please tell us which form this problem is happening on? I checked the link you provided us above and I see what looks to be part of a form there but it's not enough to go on at the moment nor do I see a form on the page. We would like to help you more but we need to know which form(s) you are using for this and if that's the correct page or not if it is embedded.
