It seems I cannot put a URL in a blank field on a form. Seems that all formula boxes do not allow html even.
Anyone can advise how to do so?
Hi Sherif, Are you using the Forms Add-on described here: https://world.episerver.com/documentation/developer-guides/forms/? If so, which version are you using?
It would also be clearer for us if you can describe the form content you are trying to create, and where you would like to put the URL to and why.
Here's an example:
url link here...
I hope to learn more about your case to provide the best solutions.

Hello, for now there's one form element named: Rich text (with placeholders) that allows some style editing and url.
Would this element satisfy your current need?
What are the other cases where you want to have url or html in forms?
I tried doing so but seems it didn't work. Is it ever possible to send me screenshots for the correct steps so I follow?
Thanks a lot Manh,
Hi, I hope you can describe how you used the rich text element? There might be things I can learn from your flow to improve user experience. Thanks!
Meanwhile, here's how I did it. Please pay attention to the rectangle with red border (I only have Alloy to work with, so pardon me):
First, you drag the form element rich text into form container
You place the element at correct position inside the container
You choose edit the element
You add the text in the textbox, then select the text you want to add url. Then you click the button to insert link.
You fill in the link title and other information in the new dialog box then hit ok
you publish the changes to the elements. then you return to the form container and publish the changes as well.
In the page that contain the form, you can see the text which has the url.
Please try and tell me how it goes. And if you don't mind, please also tell me how you tried the form element rich text before, so I can learn and improve user experience.
All images you have attached, do not show :( Can you send me this by email perhaps? I am really sorry for the annoyance.
I am using CMS 7.5
It looks like you are using XForm which is old form system of EPiServer, and now it is obsoleted. As far as I know, you cannot add link element into the XForm. But you can do a "hack" by writing some JS scripts to insert your link element into area you needed.
I have asked Mr. Dac Thach Nguyen to answer you since he is our experienced developer who knows how to create forms in CMS 7.5. My earlier comments just assumed you have Form Addon installed, sorry. Please read the comment of Mr. Dac above.
Have a good day!
