Textarea tag breaking html area

    Asked on September 22, 2014 at 09:38 PM

    Although Jotforms itself uses textarea fields, inserting one in a HTML panel (e.g. <textarea cols="40" rows="6" name="description"></textarea>) breaks the rest of the form - the remainder of the html code is shown contained in the textarea field. I've narrowed this down to textarea as using a simple input field fixes the issue, but I need a textarea field here.


    The reason I'm embedding this field as html is it needs to operate as Salesforce web-to-case which Jotforms Salesforce integration currently doesn't support.


    Anyone found a way around this?

    Unfortunately, we do not recommend embedding form fields using Text Tool. Some of it might get stripped due to the filtration applied on the text tools to prevent any XSS codes. However, you can always take your form your source code and insert your custom fields there. I think this is the most efficient way to achieve the form you want at least for now.

    Here's how to take your form source code: http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form
