    Sometimes, the cause of this kind of issue is a script conflict between your website and the form embed codes. Using our iFrame Method: http://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code should help you fix it.

    By the way, it's a page not found error for the website link. Please kindly correct it so we can further check the cause.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    So, you are talking about the Confirurable List widget that is set as required but the users can skip it and leave it as blank, right?

    While testing you form I found that I can leave the Full Name field of the widget blank and submit the form at the same time. However, let me inform you that the widget is having such behavior because that is the way it works.

    As you can see in the Gender field of the widget, the option Male is already selected. So, that makes the system to recognize all the fields as already completed. I mean, if one single field of the Configurable List is completed, in this case the Gender, then, there will not be need to complete the other fields.

    So, if you need to set every field as required you should use our Matrix Dynamique widget instead: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/matrix_dynamique

    That way, all the fields of the widget will be mandatory and people will be not able to submit the form, unless they complete all the fields.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this query.
