Content Field

A Content Field is used to display read-only text on the form. This can be used to add more instructions to the form or to give the user filling out the form more information. Users will not be able to add anything to this field.

Text

Insert text, hyperlinks, or images to display on your form. Use the formatting toolbar to choose fonts, alignment, list formatting, and text formatting.

Inserting Fields:

You can use the “Insert Field” drop down to take information the user has already supplied in earlier fields and populate that information here. This will give users a way to verify information they have supplied earlier in your form.

Adding Images:

You can also use the Content field to display images on your form. Images can either be uploaded to Cognito Forms and stored there, or hosted outside of Cognito Forms and added using a direct link to the image. NOTE: Images hosted on a non-secure server (http:// instead of https://) may return an error for some users when viewing your public link. We recommend hosting your images on a secure server and/or embedding the form into your site to avoid this error.
