[Pro] Freeway Pro 5.5.4

Using the PHP feedback form in Freeway Pro5.6.4

Hello all

I need help with the following:

I’m not getting an error page when ‘required’ fields are missing text.

• The ‘sort’ order should not be on the returned Website Quote Request. Ideally this should not be on the form

• The ‘required’ field is also listed at the bottom of the Website Quote Request Ideally this should not be on the form.

Any help will be appreciated.

Anthony

I know, I keep looking at the page code that I imagine in my brain - can’t
seem to find what is wrong…

I keep wishing for a list of FWT notes that appear at the top of the Section on the web based forum.

1 - Post a link! If we cant see it or read it we cant help!

2 - Remember that you know what you want to do but we aren’t mind readers.

Just 2 of a possibly quite long rant list.

The problem you are having is that you have added all these hidden fields that the PHPFF doesn’t know what to do with.

The sort order and the missing fields additions wont do anything. All of these are unnecessary too.

	<input type=hidden name="required" value="first name, last name, email address, contact number, company">
	<input type=hidden name="missing_fields_redirect" value="http://www.bajanapple.com/missingrequired.html">
	<input type=hidden name="subject" value="Website Quote Request">
	<input type=hidden name="thank-you" value="http://www.bajanapple.com/thank-you.html">

If you want required fields then use the Validation Suite of actions available at http://actionsforge.com/actions/view/114-validate

The subject is set in the PHPFF action interface as is the error and thank you pages. Read the blurb at FreewayActions.com | PHP feedback form for the significance of naming your fields correctly too. ie name, email and subject (case sensitive) have a purpose. So instead of separate first/last name fields just have a name field.

If you have laid out your form in a table then the sort order will also take care of itself.

Also in your pickers leave the ‘value’ of the first picker in each list blank then you wont get Paper type: paper type if there is no entry. (I appreciate you want all fields filled in but probably unnecessary when it comes to ‘how did you hear about us’ etc.)

Hope that helps.

PS - dont use formmail - it is highly hackable.

If you want to have a “self-label” like Paper type as the first (empty) option, just add the FormFix Action to either the picker or the page. It tidies up a number of foibles that Freeway insists on (gives all form elements IDs to match their Name attribute, gives all Select [picker] elements the complete structure and proper empty values, etc.).
