Forms - differences between Data Pages and Insert New Form
Apologies in advance if this gets a bit confusing.
I will say that I think I've resolved any issues, so am really more interested in checking a few things to help with my understanding of what is doing what.
I recently set up some forms using WA > Forms > Insert New Form, and found it worked perfectly, and especially great now that validation and CAPTCHA elements can be included in the same single set up.
So that's all fine.
But I did manage to get a bit mixed up at the weekend doing other forms that I also wanted to capture the contents into a database, so I used WA > Database > Data Assist Pages, just to create an insert page.
This is all good too - but although as far as I can tell you can't add / include CAPTCHA elements as part of that set up in the same way you can using Insert New Form.
So I was using WA > Forms > Insert CAPTCHA after creating my form.
This is where I got thrown when it didn't work.
To cut a long story short, the bit that threw me was the way the code for the errors are created. I have attached form1.php. If you look at line 6 the original validation errors are referenced by:
But when the CAPTCHA is added, they are referenced underneath on line 26 as:
But in the Validation Show If... code on lines 296 - 305, they are given the original reference of form1.
So as far as I can tell, the only manual edit in the end to fix it, was to delete '_043' from lines 26 and 34.
I'll stop there for now - does that make sense so far?
Is that me missing something, or is that a bug?
Looking at the video here, I don't think I missed anything.
