Radio Buttons Error

Hello

The contact form on this site ‘errors’ every time it’s sent, but succeeds when the radio buttons are omitted.

Anybody know what the specific problem is, or do I need to resort to using checkboxes and losing a bit of control over the options.

Also, Chrome and Safari seem to treat the radio buttons differently; Chrome seems to want the person enquiring to check one from every group, which isn’t necessary, whilst Safari doesn’t.

It may not be necessary for your purposes but is the correct use of a Radio - one should be selected by default. So probably not the best method in this use case.

Checkboxes would be more appropriate here and you shouldn’t lose any control because they have the option to select (with a checkbox) all or none.

I think that I would probably have a checkbox against each header ie No. 1 The Shippon (single bed) that when checked reveals the further options. That may be a bit more time/javascript than you want to invest though.

A nice, elegant, logical solution, Dave - thanks. Will have to see if I can get my head around how to do it!

The contact form initially started off with checkboxes, then changed to radio buttons - I can’t remember why now - but definitely worked for a while, but has clearly stopped working now. I’m curious as to what I did to the radio buttons to suddenly make them start error-ing.

Made them Required?

When I tried making them not required, on the first occasion the contact form sent successfully (unless I’m going mad), but, strangely, on each subsequent occasion has not. Weird.

So it sends when they are NOT set as Required?

on each subsequent occasion has not.

Not sent or not errored or both?

Not exactly sure what you are saying is the current state of play.

Your error.html page still has the Radios as Required
