Description

Using an HTML field on a form is it possible to use the HTML Input tag to save user entries?

Code:

<p><label>Name </label> <input id="myText" type="text" value="Put your name here" /></p>

 

 

Enter the name:

Save the record and notice nothing gets saved



Release or Environment

Tested on New York and Madrid

Cause

An HTML Input tag will not save the value in an HTML field.  The markup there has the values of the inputs hard coded. Typing into an input in the TinyMCE editor will not reflect back onto the field value.

Resolution

If custom data needs to be captured, one should consider if creating fields maybe a better option to capture this data. This gives more options and leverages when using the platform and will give more options to use this data more effectively.
