Textarea ending form

nmclaughlin 16 Jun, 2009
When I add a text area to one of my forms it cuts off everything after it and I have no idea why. If I remove the textarea all is fine again.

Has anyone had this problem or any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

Hi Nath,

Please post a sample of your form html with a textarea, usually they work fine.

Its a fairly large form, Its a job application form and I have everything working but as soon as I put a text area in everything under it goes until I remove it.
Also this is mostly done from scratch not using the form wizard simply due to its limitations.

      <select class="cf_inputbox" id="select_13" size="1" style="width:90px;" title=""  name="select_13">

Hi Nath,

Your textareas are missing closing tags, the syntax is <textarea . . . >content</textarea>
