Spreadsheet to form widget: Valid/invalid text - any way for it to allow HTML or be a link?

    Hi there

    Your help most appreciated.

    Here's our form: https://form.jotform.com/212135010189040

    You'll see the valid/invalid text if you put in LU2 0LS (valid) or xxxx (invalid).

    You'll then see it directs the user to a link. Unfortunately I can't get this to be a real link using <a target="_blank" href="#">.

    Is there any solution?

    Thank you for reaching out.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to have a link in those fields.

    I can make the request to the developers should you want to, so that they can include that in a future version of the software.

    Best regards

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Development request sounds good.

    Just to check there's no workaround I could do with CSS or similar?

    how did you input the hypertext
    try to add this to your context
    When I edit your code the link at the bottom changes to hypertext.

    I just add <a target="_blank" href="url">text</a>

    Hope this works! :)

    Hi Karl_B

    Thanks for looking into this. This is my code within the Jotform editor:

    Congratulations, your business is eligible to receive funding.  Apply at: <a target="_blank" href="https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/luton/readyforscale" rel="nofollow noopener ugc">www.cranfield.ac.uk/luton/readyforscale</a>

    But unfortunately it seems to remove the HTML on the live page itself:



    Might be cache related though, or something else? I note your code doesn't have https:// in it, but I don't think that'd make a difference?

    Thanks a lot
