    Still want to see the 3 fields from "splashpage" after a password is entered

    Asked by Wince on August 05, 2011 at 12:46 PM

    The first page/part seen has a contact #, Club Name and password field with all 3 being manditory.

    It is set-up so that the person needs to fill in all 3, but it is really only the password that "unhides" the rest of the form.

    I want the fields to still be seen when the balance of the form "unhides" (the password field doesn't matter, just the other 2).

    I want this, so that when the form is submitted, I know who sent it and have a contact # if they entered something incorrectly. The 3 fields provide the illusion of a higher security access than there really is :)

    The form works great!!! .... it's just the disappearing of those first fields that is an issue

    Since you used page breaks in your form, it is but natural to hide the first page when the user clicks next to go to the second page. We can override this using custom css, such as in this clone of your form. The downside to this is that we cannot prevent the form to "jump" when the Next button is clicked - it is hardcoded in the JavaScript code of the form.

    Inject this custom css onto your form:

    .form-all ul:first-child {
        displayblock !important;

    To inject custom css:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Preferences Form button
    3.  Choose Form Styles tab
    4.  Copy and paste the css code in the Inject Custom CSS textarea

    Please note that the solution I offered above doesn't work on IE versions lower than 7.

    Hope this helps. Thanks!

    Neil .... it worked great thank you!!

    I view the "jumping down" to the next section as a good thing for the data entry person (less confusing)

    All the best - Vince
