    Widgets: Possibility to hide widget with "Hide field" option inside of the properties of the field

    Asked by manybidets on May 24, 2016 at 11:24 AM

    First question, widgets don't seem to have a hide option through right click.  What am I missing?  I am able to do it by setting up rules, but I'd prefer to not have to do this.

    Second question, when using the; "get referrer widget"  It works if I put a link on one page to the page the form is on, but if I direct a customer to the page from another form, it just shows the current link.  In other words, if you enter your email address here: http://www.manybidets.com/swash-900/, and then fill out the form on http://www.manybidets.com/best-price-test the referrer link shows http://www.manybidets.com/best-price-test when it should show http://www.manybidets.com/swash-900/.  However, if I put a link to http://www.manybidets.com/best-price-test on the Swash 900 page, then fill out the form, the referrer link properly shows http://www.manybidets.com/swash-900/  Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Unfortunately currently it is not possible to hide widgets with "Hide field" option, when properties of the field option is selected. However widgets, like "get referrer" will not be shown on the form and your users will not see them, you do not need to hide them with conditions. 

    I will raise your request to our developers and they will check if this can be implemented. However we can not give you exacted time when and if this will be implemented. We there are any updates we will inform you via this thread. 

    I have moved your other question to separate thread and we will provide you an answer there shortly.
