    GPS Location Widget: How to hide the field

    Asked by netruck on August 08, 2016 at 02:51 PM

    I would like to hide the wording "Detected Location" on this form but have the field show up and the address of the form submission on the Submission Email.  I have done this with the date and time field (by hiding it).

    When I hide the "Detected Location" field it isn't included on the form submission email that is sent.

    In this case I would like to suggest hiding the widget field with CSS. It will keep the widget's data.

    You can add the next CSS via form designer to hide your GPS Location widget.

    #id_3 {
    display: none;

    Here is a quick example showing how to hide a field via form designer. Note, that you can also copy-paste the CSS mentioned above.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
