“Number field” BUG

hi i have a problem.
In the application form builder , i have created all of the type,but only number field didn’t show when i publish.
please help me solve the problem.thanks

Awesome work

Thanks for the help and support! Would definitely be a choice of application to get job applications and ads through WordPress!

Good plugin

I did a fair amount of research for a wordpress plugin to help manage the open positions on our site. Found a number of good plugins but they have not been updated for years. Then I found one which was really good but with subscription based pricing, was out of budget for us. “Apply Online” plugin is the best available in the market for managing job board for a small company, on a budget, on their wordpress site.

Frahan, the developer, has been extremely prompt in replying to my support requests.

PS: Besides the free plugin, I have also bought the paid add-ons which I think are more than worth their price.

Great plugin and support

I had an issue where my submit button disappeared. Farhan the creator of the plugin quickly responded and solved my issue. Thanks so much for your help!!!!

reCAPTCHA add on – FIXED

UPDATE:
Great plugin, and excellent support. At first, I had a problem with the reCAPTCHA add-on (see below), but Farhan responded and resolved the problem quickly. It works perfectly now. I love this plugin.

RESOLVED:
I purchased, installed and activated the “Apply Online Captcha” add on for the “Apply Online” plugin.

After filling in an “Apply Online” form I created and completing the “I’m not a robot” test, clicking the “Submit” button, produced this error message every time:

“Human verification failed.”

Is this a problem with the “Apply Online Captcha” add on? Can it be fixed?
