I want a checkbox displayed but not required (3 posts)

    I am trying to get a checkbox to appear but not be required. The text is:
    I understand that by supplying this information my details and those of the performer(s) may be held on a database and used to keep me updated on the Festival and other future events. If you are happy for us to contact you about future events please check this box.

    I added: [checkbox database] but it doesn't appear unless I add [checkbox database "confirm"] but then it won't let a user submit the form unless they tick it. I want it to be optional.

    Can anyone advise please?
    thanks in advance

    I'm having the same issue -- regardless if it's

    [checkbox ...]
    or
    [checkbox* ...]

    the field is always required, since this last update. I've checked the HTML and it does indeed always carry the "required" attribute.
