Support » Plugin: WS Form LITE - Drag & Drop Contact Form Builder for WordPress » GDPR Consent Checkbox Links not possible

  • Resolved tyue


    Is there a quick fix to add a link to the checkbox label?

    This label works in preview but not when published:
    Some text <a href="/someLink" target="_blank">GTC</a> and some <a href="/sthElse" target="_blank">other link text</a> to consent for sth.

    When published the label value is used 1:1 as html check box value without being escaped. The label itself works, but the form is destroyed.

    We might switch to WP Form if this is not possible straightforward. But our money for WS Forms were burned in this case :/

    Solution – leave the quotes out:
    Some text <a href=/someLink target=_blank>GTC</a> and some <a href=/sthElse target=_blank>other link text</a> to consent for sth.

    @ws Form guys: please escape values to not bother your users…

    Hi @tyue

    Yes it is definitely possible to do this.

    Could you please do the following:

    1. Edit your form
    2. Click the support icon (‘?’ icon)
    3. Click the ‘Contact’ tab
    4. Send a support ticket and attach your form

    I will then review your form and send you back a form that has the GDPR checkbox corrected.

    Many thanks!

    @tyue Select, radio and checkbox values are now HTML encoded in version 1.4.18 (released today).

    We would recommend adding an additional column to the datagrid of the checkbox for the values that do not contain HTML. You would then select that column in the ‘Values’ setting below the datagrid. This enables you to have a value without HTML whilst retaining the link in the checkbox label.

    I hope this helps!
