    Things aren't adding up in the calculator - any feedback appreciated

    Asked by t3rra on June 26, 2015 at 04:58 PM

    I've read the tutorial page and I think I have all of the steps correct, but I must be missing something. 

    I've added all of the relevant fields to the calculation field, with + signs in between.

    The payment wizard is set to "Get Amount From" the calculation field. 

    However, when I check the boxes, nothing happens. Any advice is appreciated!

    I cloned your form to test it and the calculation appears to be working properly:

    If you had recently made any changes they appear to have worked.  If you could let us know if it is still not working on your end, we will be happy to have another look.

    I tried again, and it's actually not working in Chrome 43.0.2357.130 m (the latest version), but is working in Firefox. Is this maybe a Jotform bug? Thank you for your help.

    If this helps, Im using Wordpress, and tried using the Wordpress embed code as well as the iFrame code, neither worked in Chrome.

    I have cloned your above indicated form, it does not add up correctly as the amount for The Niel Young Sunday Brunch! it view as $25 however it is $125:

    In the figure below, I have only checked on The Niel Young Sunday B. as $25 the sum up $125

    If the value $125 is not correct, make amendments as follows:

    1- click on the gear of the amount field, then click on Show Properties, as shown below:

    2 - The properties screen will pop up, from the right section of the field Calculation Values, make the necesary adjustment, click on Close Setting button when done:

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you for pointing out that error...Im constantly impressed with how Jotforms free support is the best of any companies Ive seen, paid or not. That being said, and I dont mean to complain, the calculator does not work in Chrome, though does work in Firefox (its a wordpress site with the current version of wordpress installed). In chrome it does not add up the totals, though it does add up the totals in firefox.
