#21339 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Creating new field in form builder has required checked by default, but does not set to required once saved.

Reported by: winterdev Owned by:

Severity: minor Version: 3.4.1

Description

Repro:

  1. go to dashboard.
  2. go to pages.
  3. edit an existing page or create a page.
  4. click button to add a custom form.
  5. ensure 'form builder' tab selected.
  6. click 'edit' button on a field that is already required (such as 'Name'. 'Required?' checkbox should be checked)

7.Click 'add a new field' at the bottom of your custom form. (the new field should appear, with 'Required?' checked by default.
8.Click 'save this field' button.

Result/Error:
new field is saved, but is not a required field even though the checkbox was checked by default.

Expectation:
A new field created in form builder will be saved as/set to required if the 'Required?' checkbox is checked.

Side Note:
Also, should this checkbox carry over the state (checked or unchecked) of the last field edited in the first place? Or should it be unchecked by default?

*Side note:* what I meant to ask was, is the initial bug actually that the checkbox carries over the state (checked or unchecked) of the last field edited?

WordPress doesn't have a form builder. This is a plugin like Gravity Forms, Jetpack, or Grunion.

As in this is a bug with a 3rd party plugin unrelated to wordpress? Which plugin is this then that WP is using to be able to create that form in the dashboard?

There's no such form on a clean install. You can disable your plugins one by one to find out which one creates the form.

Ok. How do I disable my plugins? How can I tell which plugins I have installed?

You can see whats active/installed under the 'Plugins' menu in your dashboard. If you don't have this menu, it's because you're using a hosted version of WordPress, and they've disabled access to that component of the site. If that's the case, you'll need to contact their support.

If you're using WordPress.com, you can get their support here: http://en.support.wordpress.com/

If you need any further help there, you can try asking in the WordPress.org Support forums here: http://wordpress.org/support/
