Unwanted Captcha Being Added

    Asked on September 15, 2011 at 11:21 AM

    My form adds a captcha window after the submit button.  I did not put it in there and it does not show on the form.  To complicate things, it adds this captcha window only on my ipads and not when I access the form on my pc.  The form is embedded in a weebly page using the html widget and the iFrame code from Jotform.

    I am hoping to use this form on my class ipads with parents tonight.  Thanks for your help!

    I may have solved my problem...  turned on javascript in safari on the ipads and it seems to work fine now.  Not sure why having javascripting turned off would send it to a captcha field, but oh well.  For anyone else looking at this, turning on javascript was just a on/off slider in the Safari section of the settings button on the ipads.

    I am having the same problem. When Javascript is turned off in IE and in Firefox after you submit, it brings it to a Captcha page that never loads the captcha. Why does it not just submit directly? Also I believe this is a real world problem and that users will surf with javascript turned off. How do I deal with this?

    It does not submit directly since we have to stop spam bots.

    Forms currently require JavaScript to be enabled on the browser. There is no way around it.
