[Pro] feedback form with Validate action... doesnt work

Hello!!
I would like to add the Validate Action Suite to a form in my page, because I dont really like the pages are necessary with the php FeedBack Form. I would like to be more direct.

But both of them doesnt work together… In the forum says yes everywhere, but for me, doesnt work.

If I desactivate PHP Feedback form in actions palette, the Validate works properly, but the form is not sent. When you press the button, it writes code in the address bar, but doesnt send anything.

And If I activate the PHP Feedback Form, the Validate doesnt work. The form just show the error page when the email is not correct, but anything else.

Any help, please?

My form is at http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contacto.php

Thanks!!

Well, Ive just set the form this way:

  • Feedback Form activate, with “one page for all errors”, and the success page.

If you try, validate works, but the form is not sent. You just get in the address bar something like: http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contacto.php?nombre=nvbn&provincia=vbnvn&codigo+postal=56789&telefono=&email=info%40prestadoyazul.com&Suscripcion+a+bolet�n=SI&Enviar=Enviar&observaciones=&Acepto+Pol�tica+Privacidad=SI

Set your form Method to POST rather than GET.

Also, I just looked at your page and I didn’t see any Action for the form, so naturally it won’t go anywhere in its current form. Perhaps this was a consequence of removing the PHP Feedback Form Action from the page, since the Action sets the form to point to the form handler that the Action creates and uploads to your server.

One other thing for you to try is to change the filename of your form page from whatever.php to whatever.html. This won’t make any difference in how the form is handled, but it will make it possible for you to preview the form in Freeway or your Mac’s browser while designing. Despite some lingering directions to the contrary, you do not need to change the form page to .php when using the Action to process your form.

Finally, I would recommend that you lay out your form in a table rather than as positioned DIV elements. You can achieve the same visual layout either way, but the table offers semantic improvements that are absolutely required if any of your visitors use screen readers or other assistive devices to compensate for low or no vision. Following this advice will allow you to apply the PHP Feedback Form Action to that table, which is absolutely guaranteed to be better than using the page-version of that Action.

While this is very true and I would doubly recommend this, the page in question here looks like it is a WebYep enabled page which requires the .php suffix to function.

Is there actually any editable content on it though?

Yes, the little text on the left with the phone number, etc…
Other way, I prefer to test everything on server, its just 3 seconds to upload, and I feel more confortable than in local

Thanks

ok, Ive changed to table, but it doesnt work. I thought about get and post beceause of the url, but I dont know how to change it… Untill now Ive used phpFeedbackform as simple as it is, and had no problem. The problem is now with validate action.

Thanks

If you are using the PHPFF action then it is done for you.

How are you applying the PHPFF action - you should apply it as a page action. It isn’t there in your page at http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contacto.php

Hello, DeltaDave.

Since last post Ive been trying on it. Ive not applied the action as a page one, i did it as an element one. But it didnt work again.

I ve just change the .php for .html and it works fine. The thing is that on this way I cant have the editable text via WebYep… but I think this is the problem, that the actions doesnt work fine together in a .php page.

I was sure that I submitted to your .php page

Change the html back to php or duplicate it and put it up as well so I can compare them.

This page has the same form with validation and is also a WebYep page

It works fine for me.

Well, duplicating pages as you said, Ihave maden more changes and tests. Now everything works in this three pages:

http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contactohtml.html

http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contactophp.php

http://www.i-tek.es/demoweb/guiagente/docs/contactowebyep.php

You can try them if you want.

I dont know what was happening before, but now, as I have remade it, it works… I think that it fixed when I removed all the web yep code from the page. Then I set the form in the html page, and it worked, set the page to php and it still worked, and then, I added the web yep elements. At first, I did it in the inverse way. Could be…

Thanks for your help.

The WebYep page that I linked to was WY before I added the form so it cannot be anything to do with the order that the page was created.

And they all worked for me too.
