Is there a way to block submission of a form if a text field contains a url? Or a way to strip out any urls added? It's a pretty simple anti-spam feature that literally tons of websites have, but I can't see how to make Formidable do one or the other. I seem to recall there was a validator some time ago that looks for urls and strips them, but it seems that the pro version I have currently does not have that ability. There is a reference to shortcodes somewhere in the docs but the images seem to relate to earlier versions and in any case aren't explained. I'm guessing it's something simple I'm missing.... Anybody have any ideas?
I just went to update one of my sites today and after doing so I found that I now have both the free and pro version showing up in my plugins section. Why is that? There were enough problems in the past, clicking update and finding my pro version had been downgraded to free, and I don't want yet more. I also don't want additional plugins added to my install that I didn't ask for. I tried, but am unable to deactivate the free plugin. Surely I should be able to control and specify my own plugins?
Something that seems to have hit all my sites using Fforms pro at an unrecocnised date in the past month or two.. I recently decided to revise a bunch of forms on one of my websites - there were some 18 forms, some for post creation, some for contacts of one sort or another, some also with front-end edit facilities. First, I started to edit each form by removing or re-laying various fields on the 'build' page. Having done that, I moved into settings and went to the 'create post' function and scrolled down to where the form fields were married together with custom fields. The redundant fields were obvious because of course there was a 'select field' message. Instead of selecting a message, I clicked to delete that line. Immediately, the entire lower section of the 'create posts' edit screen (the part which includes the custom fields) vanishes and cannot be recovered. The only option is to update the form, wait for it to save, open the 'create post' function again, scroll down, find another custom field connection that needs to be deleted, and then repeat the process. It is a mind-numbing waste of time. Faced with such […]
