Formidable Forms
I agree to these terms (7 posts)

    I'm evaluating formidable forms now and they seem really great! I'm held up on one thing though...

    At the end of my form , before a user submits it, I needs to have them agree to a set of terms and conditions. Naturally I would simply use the "radio button" feature, then add the question "Do you agree to the Terms & Conditions", with one option that reads "Agree" and then make it a required question. Simple.

    The problem is I cannot imbed a link into question text so that the user could click "Terms & Conditions" in order to view the terms and conditions before agreeing to them. Anyone else experienced this or have a recommendation for a work around?

    BTW, I really like Formidable Forms so far...great plugin!

    Those using the free version of Formidable can add a link into the label of another field. Field labels accept HTML, just make sure to add target="_blank" to your href so your terms and conditions open in a new tab/window instead of navigating away from your form.

    Alternatively, you can insert your HTML directly into your form using the "Customize HTML" tab on the settings page. This tab displays the HTML for your entire form, so you can go in and insert your link above your "agree" radio button field.

    It might be preferable to use a lightbox or pop-up window to display your terms and conditions.

    Thanks srwells, very helpful! Would you perhaps recommended an alternative approach if using the paid version?

    The paid version does contain an HTML field type. this is a field where HTML can be inserted directly into the form from the form builder page, it is a little more user-friendly than the options I mentioned above. I would probably use this field type to display the terms and conditions directly in the form (in a scrollable box) so the user doesn't have to leave the form at all.

    Also, I would probably use a checkbox for your "I agree" field rather than a radio field. A radio field with only one option can't be unselected but a checkbox can.

    By the way, you could also install our terms of use plugins that integrates with Formdiable:

    Excellent thanks srwells! I've just purchased the paid version and I'll likely go with your suggestion of using the HTML field to display the terms & conditions in a scrollable box directly on the page. Now I've just got to find some HTML to do this! Thanks again for your input!
