    I tested the standalone version and the "other" option is working properly, allowing user to type an option. There must be a conflict between the site's a form's code. 

    You may try embedding your form again, using the iFrame embedding method:

    Let us know if the problem persists.

    The standalone version on my computer is not working. I tried re-embedding the code, but it still doesn't work. Do you have any other suggestions on how to fix this? Is there a reason it's not working, even on my standalone version?

    Hello Emily,

    I did check your form with its direct URL and it seems to be working as expected. Please check the screenshot below:

    There seems to be some code conflict between the form script/css code and the other code available in your web page. To solve this problem, please re-embed your form using it iFrame embed code. The following guide should help you in grabbing your form's iFrame embed code:  https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if the issue persists.

    Thank you!
