Can't Get Form Fields to Validate

curious, your page validates properly when I test it on my computer.

first thing I'd like to test is that the page online has the validation applied to it. It may be that you uploaded this file, applied server validation then uploaded it again, sometimes Dreamweaver will fail on the upload, but report success.

To test this, add today's date to the page within the body, or some other visible change to the page, then upload it again. If you don't see today's date when you view the page, then the upload is failing for some reason, try deleting the file from the server, then uploading again.

If you do see today's date on the page something else is wrong.

Try adding the following code at line 1, there may be a php error occurring:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



also, find the following code:

php:
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {

    PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"ServerValidations");
  }


and change it to:

php:
var_dump($_POST);

echo("<br />");
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {
   die($WAFV_Errors);
    PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"ServerValidations");
  }





this will help me troubleshoot further.
