Blank Fields Suppression

November 20, 2007

In your web form, those fields that are not set as “required fields” may or may not be completed by the web user.

 What to do with those blank fields?

Previously Web-form-buddy would include the field in the form data list, but with the “~” character to signify the field was blank. This might look like so:

Name ~ Peter Smith
Email ~ peter@gmail..com
Address ~ ~
City ~~
Country ~ USA

In this case, the “City” & “Country” fields are blank fields.

Now we’ve added the option for Web-form-buddy to suppress blank fields if you prefer.  Using the same example, you would now receive data like this:

Name ~ Peter Smith
Email ~ peter@gmail..com
Country ~ USA

To select this option just navigate to the form’s “data options” settings.
