Website field

  1. The website form field seems to require the 'http://' part to be included in the form... So, if someone enters their site as: wolfsnap.com it kicks the form back. Unfortunately, this seems to have caused people some issues. I note that you're already putting the 'http://' into the field, but then it's cleared as soon as you click in the field. So, I'm wondering if there's any way to do either:

    1) Allow web addresses (basically two parts with at least on '.' (dot) in between the two parts OR,
    2) Keep the http:// there when someone types? OR,
    3) Just don't validate is as closely as it should be.

    For now, I've switched to a single-line form field instead of the website field. But, it just doesn't seem as ideal to me.

    Anyways, options?

  2. We will look at how we can improve the website address field in a future release. Possibly incorporate some JavaScript auto-formatting.

    Here's a potential workaround. If the user omits a protocol (http://, https://, ftp:// etc.), this workaround prepends the value with http:// before Gravity Forms validates the website field.
