Last name same as first name

    For some reason, we have a high number of entries where the last name field is being entered the same as the first name field.

    For example, the entry will appear as:
    First name: Bob
    Last name: Bob

    It was never last name, last name. Only first name, first name.

    Out of 86 entries, 7 had this occur. This seems statistically too high to be a coincidence, user error, or an auto-fill program messing up...

    Here is the form:

    Thanks,
    Dan

  2. I've never seen that happen with Gravity Forms. I just submitted your form and saw this on the confirmation page:

    "Thank you, Chris!"

    So, I think it captured my first name correctly.

    I can safely say this is not something Gravity Forms would do, but it could be something unique to the processing you're doing (if any, using functions.php or jQuery) or your visitors.

    Caching plugins with WordPress can cause weirdness too, but I've never seen this happen from a caching plugin.

  5. @jezweb, please start a new topic for new issues. It's unrelated to this one. We're happy to help you individually.

    However, you want to edit your name field and pull down "simple" from the drop down.

    The three choices are normal, simple and extended. First and last are "normal". Simple will give you a single input.
