  • Hello!

    I had the same issue and managed to solve it by looking into the settings of the “broken” form.

    I noticed that the German translation of check box (“Kontrollkästchen”) was selected as the input type and that right below this there was an option called “checkbox-multiple”. After I selected this one and saved the settings that ugly error message was gone! 🙂

    Hope that helps!

    Cheers

    Yes, but, if you have more than one option and only want one checked this doesn’t help.

    I’m having a real problem with this one too!

    It seems to have appeared out of nowhere with a form I’ve been happily using for 18 months! Surely it must be the recent update? I’ve just noticed the recent update note says:

    3.1.5.4
    (12 May 2012) – Better detection of checkbox config errors.

    Thing is . . . . I’ve checked my coding via the FastSecureContact Form website instructions. see link
    http://www.fastsecurecontactform.com/how-to-add-extra-fields
    and I can’t see any error!!!

    The code I used in 2 of the extra fields (when I originally built the forms 18 months ago) are as follows:
    {inline},BA;MA;PHD;Other
    &
    {inline},French;German;Italian;Spanish;Mandarin;Other

    The form which these parameters are used in is here:

    Any ideas anyone?

    when you’re using a single check box make sure the type is checkbox.
    Do not use type checkbox-multiple for a single check box

    These are both incorrect as the are mussing the label before the comma
    {inline},BA;MA;PHD;Other
    &
    {inline},French;German;Italian;Spanish;Mandarin;Other

    Like this would be correct
    {inline}Qualifications,BA;MA;PHD;Other
    &
    {inline}Languages,French;German;Italian;Spanish;Mandarin;Other

    Mike, I’ve tried the last example you have above and replaced the text for my own criteria but it’s not working.

    Mine is at http://avaa.asn.au/join-now/

    I have tried so many different variations but still can’t get it to work.

    I am also having the same issue and can not figure it out. You can view the form here: Rebuild Hi-Tor Test page
    Thanks, any help is appreciated.

    Ok. so i went thru the rest of the forum and found it in a answer from 2 years ago. I had a “,” in the label.

    Version 4.0 is coming soon and extra fields will be really easy.
    no more comas semicolons to separate the options

    Label: Languages

    Options: (inside a textarea)
    French
    German
    Italian
    Spanish
    Mandarin
    Other

    Thank You for the “,” clue! That was my problem!

    I too have tried everything without any result. Can you take a peek at this site:

    tomgeijn,

    Follow the instructions exactly. If you need help, post what you have set for the extra field label

    How to add extra fields

    (@tomgeijn)

    Well. I’ve read it now about thirty times but I really can’t see what I’m doing wrong.
    I’ve put this in the extra field: Activiteit:,voorjaarscursus;najaarscursus;clinic
    And the label Activiteit is set as checkbox-multiple.

    That label was fine but now you have an error because you it set to checkbox? Try a different type: Checkbox-multiple, Radio, Select, or Select-multiple

    tomgeijn

    (@tomgeijn)

    I had set checkbox-multiple.
    Now I’ve set the “Radio” configuration, again with the same disappointing result.
    Can you please take a look at it?

    There is a field called attributes. Add a comma to that box.

    Then if you have multiple check box selected you would add the comma first, then comma separate the variables.

    Note: Make sure your label does not have any commas in it.
