Custom Field: ‘Select list’ does not work?

Hello,

 

I created a custom field for questions like an example below:

- Type: Select list

- Required: Yes

- Options: 
      VALUE=Option1
      VALUE=Option2
      VALUE=Option3
      VALUE=Option4
      VALUE=Option5

- Default value: VALUE=Option1

 

The problem is:

Whatever option front-end user selected, it is always neglected.

When saved, the result of the custom field is always set to “Option5”, regardless of the actual selection.

 

It seems it’s not working.

Will you please check on your end?

Hi,

That's because you have not entered any values for the options.

The correct format is VALUE=OPTION, where VALUE is the actual value saved for an option, not just the word VALUE,

for example:

option-1=Option 1
option-2=Option 2
option-3=Option 3
option-4=Option 4
option-5=Option 5

In this example, if the user selects Option 2, then the value option-2 will be saved.

For the default option, just enter the value, for example:

option-2

Oh, now I finally understood how it works.

Thank you!
