    Hi Support

    I am trying to create an online voting form for candidates standing for elections to our organisation's Council.  Checking through the Forum, I read that the Catcha input could be set up for unique submissions.  I cannot make this function work either as loose check or strict check. When I test it from my own computer, I can still make multiple submissions with no warnings or refusals. What am I doing wrong? I need to ensure one off voting for a list of candidates.

    Please Use A Strict Check And Add The Followong To Your Form:

    Captcha And Uniques Id

    What is supposed to happen? Should I see a refusal to accept a second submission from the same IP address?  Am I reading this function correctly?

    I tested it and you are right Strict Check does not work on this form.

    I have assigned a bug ticket for this. One of our developers will work on this. Unfortunately, they are very busy, so it may take a while before we can resolve this issue.

    Sorry, no, it hasn't!   I have just voted from the same machine (and IP Address) three times with no challenge.  Further thoughts?

    Just want to add my input on this issue. I concur with Sandy, strict check isn't working on my end either.

    Please feel free to use my test form! I have tried yet another more elaborate version which is at http://www.jotform.com/sandymacrae/TestVote  It uses the same Strict Check and it doesn't work either.

    The idea here is to eventually put up the candidates pictures and a brief statement from each.  Using separate Check Boxes works better in the Excel Spread Sheet Report, too.  Thanks for your efforts.

    Sandy, In your form Strict Check doesn't work but I have cloned your form and I have added pictures. In my form Strict Check is work fine. Can you clone and test it ?

    Yes, your form works for me.  What have you done that is different from my version (apart from layout)

    Hmm - I'm not sure that is a real fix!  I have just gone in, taken off the Stirct Check then put it back on again and no joy.  As I said, I created a new form from scratch after my first failure and this doesn't work either.  I will try making a clone instead.  Thanks

    No, making a straight clone doesn't work for me.  But your version still does.  Do tell...

    I don't know what the problem is. I made a new form now. http://www.jotform.com/form/12633710937

    Strict Check is working fine. I couldn't create your problem again.

    Yes, your new form works for me, too.  Strange.  I will try one more time to create another new form with Strcit Check later today.  Many thanks for your efforts.
