How to make a 'radio' field a required field. (3 posts)

    Hi I cant see any option in the editor when making a radio button.

    I tried adding the * that I have seen in previous text inputs that flag the filed as required but it does not work and the tag just get printed out.


    [radio* your-medical-condition "No" "Yes"]

    Surely this is possible?

    Hope someone can help,

    Kind regards,

    Note that there is no required version of radio (“radio*”). The reason Contact Form 7 doesn’t provide “radio*” is because a radio button is a required field by nature.

    For your case, I suggest to use 'default' option instead, like this

    [radio your-medical-condition default:1 "No" "Yes"]
