    Problem with form with images

    Asked by Petrushka on September 03, 2011 at 11:57 AM

    I have uploaded images (facebook, rtc) and attached links to them.  When I saved and previewed the form in an application, all I saw was a single line, not expanded to show images.

    To correct this I had to add a new field (like stars) on a second line to be able to display the icons and the second line.

    Is there a "Spacer" field that is blank that can be added to make this a clean view of just the icon image line?

    Is this what you're trying to accomplish?

    If yes, you can move an image (or field) to the next line by right-clicking in it then choosing "Move to a new line"


    Let us know if I misunderstood your issue and this isn't really what you're trying to do. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thanks for the response, Neil

    However, I am trying to line up the icons horizontally and I can do that.

    My problem is that once I line them up, if I do not enter any type of text/input field on the NEXT line, below the lined up icons, all I get is a 1/4" bar (background colored) as the display.

    As a result, I have had to enter a minimal "placeholder" field, such as "stars" with no text to get the icons to display horizontally.

    This also happens if I line up the icons vertically as in your example.

    Is there a "blank" placeholder field that I can use if this is necessary to display "icons-only"?

    Hi Tom,

    I'm not sure if someone has already advised this to you, but you can actually embed your images using the Free Text (HTML) field which is quite similar to what you called a blank placeholder. Using this workaround may require more time and (optionally) some manual HTML coding but could address your concerns faster.

    You can find the Free Text (HTML) field under Power Tools. For a sample demo of this form in action, please visit http://www.jotform.com/form/12460351356. Feel free to clone it also.

    Hope you find this tip ueful and relevant. Thank you for using JotForm!
