Summary15345: Switching language requires the inline policy notice being ticked.

When trying to switch language, limesurvey insists on the inline policy notice being ticked.

This doesn't make much sense, since the user probably can't understand the notice, which is why he's trying to switch it.

Steps To Reproduce

Add an inline policy notice to a survey with multiple languages and try switching language without accepting the policy notice first.

TagsNo tags attached.

Brought from ticket
Sorry for the confusion.


The prlblem seems to be the "required" attribute on the checkbox. Also, the style of the label for that checkbox should be inline-text, incase it has multiple lines.


We can remove the required attribute in JS, but we need a no-js solution

Why not :

Adding the required in JS
Remove when changelanguage ?


I believe there is a backend validation as well, as if you change the language through the menu option (top right), a messages is given form the backend: "We are sorry but you can't proceed without first agreeing to our survey data policy."

Removing the required from the input on the view wouldn't be enough?
And also, showing the backend error only when the next is clicked and not the change language.

When using collapsable policy the error doesn't happen, although the backend message is shown, creating confusion.
