    Form Number Showing Up on Cloned Form

    Asked by ShakesAttic on March 16, 2012 at 12:50 AM

    I cloned a form. The form number is now showing up at the bottom of the new form - to the left of my submit button.

    I created multiple forms on .net earlier with no problems. Am I no longer able to create forms on that site? This one is not launched until this problem is fixed.

    This is not the only form I have to create.

    Thank you.

    May I ask for the link of the form you are trying to clone?

    You can still clone forms in your account there is no limit imposed on how many forms you can create or clone in your JotForm account. I did some troubleshooting and found out that when a quote (") is included as one of the characters in the default value this triggers the hidden field with value of the form id.

    I already have created a ticket for such issue. For the meantime can you remove the quote in the default value of the Product field in the form, Religious Bookmarks in 8 Designs ~ Personalized Aluminum 5 Title.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your responses.

    In case you still need it, the form I cloned was: http://www.jotform.net/form/20142124263

    I just tried it. It works perfectly. Thank you.

    I'll just have to remember to spell out inches, instead of using quotes. I can do that.

    Thanks, again!

    @ShakeAttic

    I just ran a few tests and discovered that the bug won't be generated if the HTML entity for the double quotation mark is used, as illustrated in the form below:

    So, you can go ahead and use the double quotation mark to represent inches. (Incidentally, my tests also showed that if the default value is wrapped in double quotes, without using the HTML entity, the value vanishes.)

    The HTML entities for double quotes can be found on this page. (either the named entity or its numeric equivalent can be used. Although I remember reading somewhere that numeric entities have wider browser support.)
