    This text entry requires a URL. I have the validation set up to do so, but can it tell if its a valid url? Lets say user enters in their social media account like twitter, I need it to check to see if the URL is a valid (public) profile. How can I do this?

    The URL validation opton will only validate the text entry if its a correct or valid URL format of text. It will not validate if its an account or data.

     

    You may want to check Social Share widget instead here https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/social_share

    This widget will allow you to get data of social media account(profile) using the form.

    Hope this help. Let us know if there is more we can help you with.
