    How can I modify the warning messages of the Terms & Condition widget?

    Asked by proba1 on September 08, 2015 at 05:45 AM

    I could customize the "I agree..." text, but I can't find where the warning messages can be replaced. I tried Preferences > Advanced Settings > Edit Form Warnings, but no luck.

    First of all, we are sorry for the inconvenience. Form warning of a widget is not customisable unless there is an option to customise in widget's properties menu.

    Thank you for your quick response.


    If someone else got the same problem:

    I solved this issue with a Check Box field with only 1 option, deleted the label, set the field as required, and I inserted the following text as the only 1 option:

    I agree to the <strong><a target="_blank" href="http://www.example.com" rel="nofollow noopener">Terms & Conditions.</a></strong>

    Hello proba1,

    Thank you for sharing your workaround with users.

    Please be noted that it is possible to change the validation message of the "Terms & Conditions" widget by injecting the following custom css code in your form:

    .required:hover .requiredtxt {



    .required .requiredtxt {




       content: "Your custom validation message" !important;   


    Please check the screenshot below on how to inject custom css code in the widget:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
