I am running ss 2.3.1 and the latest userforms module. Everything was working perfectly and then i decided to try and install mollom as a way of stopping spam. This then required the latest trunk of userforms as per Will's post here

It didn't really seem to work, so i then decided to delete all the mollom files and replace the trunk userform module with the original version that i had used.

This has now given me a dropdown and checkboxes problem. When i try to insert a dropdown menu or checkboxes item it says 'adding new field' and then 'added new field' However i can't see the new field and so i can't enter any data. It also doesn't exist when the page is published.

Can anyone shed any light. It's been bugging me for at least 2 hours. All the other form fields work fine. It's just the dropdown and checkboxes.

Many thanks.

Hi Briohny

Doubl-a-ron had the same issue in this thread:

He mentioned that he fixed it but didn't say how, might be worth posting in there to see if he can answer :)

Thanks Aram. I tried Double-A-Ron's suggestion but it still didn't work. I've posted my original problem over there and i'm hoping someone has another suggestion.
