    How to leave HTML code in place (Text HTML field)

    Asked by SpiritofGeorgia on March 27, 2014 at 09:47 AM

    Every time I enter code in the HTML editor, the content is able to be changed on the page, but the HTML button returns to a blank screen.  Is there any way to leave the code in place for fine tuning tables, images, etc?


    Thank you!

    Can you please specify if you are talking about the Submit button? Can you please refer to the URL fo your page where you paste the source code and customize it?

    I am using the "Text" funtion within the "Form Tools" inside JotForm.  It looks to be the same function as the HTML button in the forum reply tool ribbon.  If I were to select HTML, it would show a blank screen.  If I were to then select the "Update" instead of "Cancel" I would lose everything being typed. 


    In the form above, it took several attempts at pasting modified HTML code to get the "Text" function to look and act as the Header.

    We are sorry for the inconveniences caused.

    I have cloned your form and the Text HTML fields worked fine on my end. Note, you can change HTML code using both HTML icon on the field Properties bar and small HTML icon on the editor.

    Also, we have an XSS protection, so that some code (JavaScript for example) might be automatically stripped to prevent possible attacks.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.
