Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/t7tN4/

$(document).ready(function() {
   //$('<input type="text" name="textbox1" />').appendTo("form");
    $('<input type="text" name="textbox1" value="new" />').insertBefore("input:submit");
});

Open in new window

That doesn't actually work the way expected.

I may have not explained correctly.

I'm looking for a completely separate button I would click that would add an additional input field to the form.

Ah it seems what you posted was for it to insert an extra field when the page is loaded.  I need it to be done when  I click a button, but I'm not sure how to modify to do so?

I dont see any button in your HTML let me think you want this clicking on a button.
Did you understood the code provided or do you just need someone to code for you?

Yes I figured it out with some tweaking.

http://jsfiddle.net/t7tN4/2/

Now I'm going to open a new question.  How can I make the name of the new field go up in increments on 1 as I continue to add them?
