    I need to insert a hyperlink in the description for the checkbox I have setup. I need the “Terms of Use” words to link to the page with terms of use. Can’t figure out for the life of me how to insert that link.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Use acceptance checkbox instead.

    What code do I use to insert a link with the acceptance checkbox?

    Hi @andrewisliving

    I just wonder if you found out how to insert a link in a checkbox to link to the T&C page?
    I have exactly the same issue and I struggle to find a way to do it?

    Using the acceptance checkbox doesn’t help as there is no link to the T&C page, neither.
    Thanks a lot

    i have the same issue @cecom. I hope someone can help.
    Thanks

    same issue here. what code to use when adding an hyperlink to the description field?

    I have the same issue & equally hoping someone can help.

    I found this to work for our Form, hope it helps:

    [acceptance acceptance-234] Please tick to consent to your data being stored in line with the guidelines set out in our privacy policy [/acceptance]

    hello jaynebirks, I don’t fully understand how I can get your solution to work in the backend. Please elaborate

    hi jimmsweb, I’m new to this & when I post it keeps changing code to link…. last try:

    [acceptance acceptance-234] Please tick to consent to your data being stored in line with the guidelines set out in our <a href=" //www.proactive.co.uk/ privacy-policy/ “>privacy policy [/acceptance]`

    hi @jaynebirks, thank you very much, but the problem persisted ar first. Now, I seem to have solved it by splitting the acceptance checkbox and a bit of text, including the hyperlink, within a paragraph <p>, like so:

    <p>[acceptance acceptance-897][/acceptance]Ja, ik ga akkoord met de disclaimer*.</p>

    Sorry the description text is in Dutch, but you get the picture 😉

    Hi all!

    I have the same problem. I need to insert a hyperlink to a text of consent to Data Protection and it doesn’t work. I have done it with a “Check Box” but I don’t know how to insert a hyperlink.
    I have tried to follow the advice above but it doesn’t work either 🙁 anyone can help me please?

    Thanks!

    Hi bluesforalice,

    Hope this is published correctly 😉

    I use an acceptance checkbox within my form, sure the tickbox is the same….. anyway I inserted the tickbox & set the condition to:

    Please tick to consent to your data being stored in line with the guidelines set out in our <a href=" //www.proactiveav.co.uk/privacy-policy/ ">privacy policy</a>

    so my form template contains:

    [acceptance acceptance-737] Please tick to consent to your 
    data being stored inline with the guidelines set out in 
    our <a href=" //www.proactiveav.co.uk/privacy-policy/ "
    >privacy policy</a> [/acceptance]
    
    [submit class:button "Send"]

    Which results in privacy policy being highlighted & when clicked takes you to the page that contains our PP info.

    Hope this works…..

    Hello,

    i do have the same problem. I already tried everything described above, but nothing worked.

    Are there any other solutions or does anybody else still have this problem?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I have been trying to add an acceptance checkbox to my forms however, when I save the form and look at it on the live site the text and link don’t appear, though the empty checkbox is there.

    Any guidance on why the code won’t work as outlined, and potential fixes (I have already tried all of the above) would be really helpful.

    Thank you.

    Hi @amtenbrink & @orbonline

    This issue is solved from my part. Try with this code in your form (it is working with me):

    <div class=”form-group row”>
    <div class=”col-xs-8″>
    <div class=”checkbox”>
    [checkbox* privacy_policy “”]<span> I’ve read and I accept the Privacy Policy</span>
    </div>
    </div>
    </div>

    I hope this helps
    Regards
