Hello, I'm encountering an issue with Formidable Forms on my WordPress website. While my Gravity Forms are working perfectly fine, Formidable Forms seem to have a problem with the submit button. Instead of displaying the submit button as expected, it's showing "Enter Key" on the button. Here are some additional details:

  • I have the latest version of Formidable Forms installed.
  • I've checked for conflicts with other plugins by deactivating them one by one, but the issue persists.
  • I've reviewed the form configuration, and everything seems to be in order.
  • I've checked for JavaScript errors, but none seem to be related to this issue.
  • My theme is compatible with Gravity Forms, so it should work with Formidable Forms as well.

I'm unsure what's causing this behavior and how to fix it. Has anyone else encountered a similar issue with Formidable Forms? Any insights or suggestions on how to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help!

That looks like the backend (admin) version of the form, not the version that's the result of the shortcode [formidable id="#"] on a page. What's the URL of the page your screenshot represents?

Hi Rob, I appreciate your prompt response. I'd like to clarify that I am currently utilizing a plugin, and the page in question is accessible exclusively to administrators or users authorized by the administrator. Furthermore, I'm not employing an embedded form; instead, I have incorporated PHP code directly onto the plugin's files. It's worth noting that this setup is within the context of a school management system, which has its dedicated page.

I don't understand why your page is under wp-admin/admin.php. You should create pages under the root and protect them with a login.

It's situated within the "wp-admin" section because I'm utilizing a plugin that comes with its own dashboard. To clarify, this is a school management system plugin integrated into the WordPress site. Within this plugin, I'm employing Formidable Forms by inserting PHP code into the plugin files. However, I encountered an issue where, instead of seeing a button, I'm presented with text that reads "key" along with an input box. I attempted to resolve this by both embedding and adding the code directly, but the problem persisted. Interestingly, when I tried using Gravity Forms, it worked without any issues.

I get it, but I don't know what to do about it. I'm going to stick with my guess that if admin.php is in the URL then you're not going to get what you want, unless you somehow fool it via a hook. I suggest reaching out to an FF developer to help -

You say you're using PHP to load the form. Please share the PHP code.
