I keep going between Forms to Go and easiForm PHP with this form:

I have no success, though. I can’t seem to find the link that ties
them all together. Further, I can’t seem to get it so that one
input textarea goes to the next input textarea when I press “tab” on
the keyboard.

I would expect a “tab” to be valid content for a textarea, so it
wouldn’t ‘tab’ to the next textarea. It should work with normal text
boxes as they don’t accept "tab"s.

You can’t type a tab in any text input, sadly. You can paste one, but you can’t enter one with the keyboard. There are some JavaScript tricks that simulate this behavior by intercepting the tab keypress event and sustituting four spaces, but you would have to add this to your page.

The input fields in the ‘Get Train Times’ form at
http://www.thetrainline.com have recently been changed, and now they
block tabbing from one field to another, typing a tab instead, when I
use Safari. Intensely irritating.

That’s really odd. I can’t imagine a reason why you would want to type a tab into one of those fields. What version of Safari are you seeing this behavior in?

When I go there I get an invalid certificate error - unknown signer.

Used First Great Western instead - it gets stuck after paying and so
there’s no confirmation.

Wonder who gets the jobs to create these sites.

Safari 3.1.1 - The site owners apparently know about a Safari
problem. Still weird.

Mmm, yep. >:-(

TheTrainLine does work even though it throws that dumb certificate
error (introduced with the site revamp), but it is really poor.
(Almost as bad as the fragmented, semi-automatically constructed
excuse for a support email sent in reply to my complaint!)

Bad all 'round. I only use it to check train times, but it is now so
bad that I’m going to have to find an alternative.

To get back to Rocky’s OP

Choose one of the above methods (don’t mix them) and follow the instructions.
