Sticky Forms

I had created "sticky forms" for my checkout page, however for some reason they are now not working. I have used this code before and never a problem.

Here are the sticky form scripts I have tried:

<td><input type="text" name="firstname" id="firstname" "<?php if(isset ($_POST['firstname'])) {echo 'value="'.htmlentities ($_POST['firstname']).'"';}?>" /></td>

<td><input type="text" name="lastname" id="lastname" value="<?php if(isset ($_POST['lastname'])) {echo htmlentities($_POST['lastname']);}?>" /></td>

<td><input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="<?php if(isset ($_POST['email'])) {echo($_POST['email']);}?>" /></td>

All of these have worked on other sites. Since the code did work and now it does not, my first inclination was to see what had changed, but am unable to locate anything.

I have also added the

if(!isset($_SESSION)) {
session_start();
}
$_SESSION['firstname']=stripslashes($_POST['firstname']);

Although it was working without as the session variables are already set.

Anyone have a clue as to why I am having this issue or where I am having the issue?

Also, it would seem to me that this should have been included with the original code since there is a Modify Information button, is it possible I did not create the pages correctly or miss some option in the beginning?

Thank you

when you click the modify button, there is no form post being made back to the checkout page.

When the checkout page posts to the confirm page, the information is stored in session variables.

On the checkout page, select each form element, then go to the properties inspector. Click the lightning bolt next to initial value and select the corresponding binding from the session collection.

Thank You

Thank you for your quick reply, works like a charm. My only problem now is that DW crashes when I try to set the state and country drop down menus through the properties window...

Thank you for your help.

CS3. I restarted the machine, then tried it again, but it still crashed. I also manually inserted the code prior to the restart and still got the crash.

I will read the info you sent me...

Thank you again.

I did a search of my computer and did not find a WinFileCache.dat file. Could it be a different name?
