Feedback form - required field

Thanks for your help on this . . . not sure I want to use the Validate Form
action for the reason that it
can be turned off.

I notice there is another suite of actions called easiform . . . am I right
in saying this is a purchase action
for each domain that it is associated with? . . . Can this be setup with
required fields?

As it is a very simple contact form I think I may leave it as is and drop
the required fields if there is not
a simple solution. I really liked the ease of implementing the PHP Feedback
Form as I have used a cgi
form script in the past.

Any other suggestions before I change the form would be welcome.

Note however that this “validation” can be disabled by the user simply
by turning off JavaScript.

Easiform does live up to its name, if your server supports the Ioncube
source code lock system. It’s another order of complexity beyond
PHPFF: it offers more, but it requires more from you.

The thing about “required” fields is this: you have to think, as the
poet has it, about what you are walling in, and what you are walling
out.

If this is a trivial thing, you can certainly keep with the JavaScript
“validation”, and know that you are making a good-faith but trivial
effort.

If you are protecting the crown jewels, then AFTER you reconsider
putting them on line in the first place, you want to use a series of
redundant checks to make absolutely sure that what you are getting
from the browser is not fraudulent. Use JavaScript on the browser to
speed up the validation, so your users don’t have to wait through a
complete form submit/validate cycle on the server. Then back that up
with the same tests on the server, in a format and forum where it is
considerably harder to spoof.

Remember, don’t trust anything you get from a browser any further than
you can spit a live rat.

Colin,

Yes this is a purchase action, a license will allow as many contact
type forms as you want on that domain but for another domain it will
need another license and there are discounts for 5 licenses. A license
for single easiForm is $20 per domain (Not IP Address) or $30 as an
easiForm and easiCaptcha bundle.

Yes easiForm can be set up with ‘Required fields’.

You can check if it is what you are looking for by setting it up on
your form and then getting everything running before making a
purchase, you will receive any email in any tests although an alert
will load in place of any success page while in demo mode.

in detail can be downloaded from this page:
