Email won't send!

Email won't send!

Hi All,

I have just built a webform with form builder and have applied Universal email to it but for some reason the form submission isn't going to the thankyou.html page that I have set up and sending the form data.

The URL is:

The URL after clicking submit is:

I've done this many times in the past with no problem, maybe I just need a fresh pair of eyes for something I have overlooked.

Any suggestions as to why this isn't sending would be great.

This means the form is failing the server validation.

My guess is that the checkbox groups are throwing it off, but I'd want to look at the code to verify.

Can you find the server validation code on the page and copy and paste it into a reply to this thread? If not maybe attatch the page, but really I just want to look at the server validation portion.

You could narrow it down more by adding <?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?>

This would give you more information about which field(s) are actually failing validation. I could probably tell by looking at the code directly, but the var_dump would tell me where exactly to look.

Thanks for having a look at this, I think this is the code you're wanting to look at:

if (isset($_POST["Realtor_submit_x"])) {
$WAFV_Redirect = "contact.php?invalid=true";
$_SESSION['WAVT_contact_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_First_Name"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_First_Name"]:"") . "",true,1);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Last_Name"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Last_Name"]:"") . "",true,2);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateEM((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Email"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Email"]:"") . "",true,3);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidatePN((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Phone_Number"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Phone_Number"]:"") . "",false,true,true,4);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidatePN((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"]:"") . "",false,true,true,5);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Own_a_home"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Own_a_home"]:"") . "",true,6);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Buying_a_home"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Buying_a_home"]:"") . "",true,7);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Selling_a_home"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Selling_a_home"]:"") . "",true,8);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE((strtolower(isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Security_code"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Security_code"]:"")) . "",((isset($_SESSION["captcha_fieldset_group_Security_code"]))?strtolower($_SESSION["captcha_fieldset_group_Security_code"]):"") . "",true,9);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE((strtolower(isset($_POST["fieldset_group_nbsp"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_nbsp"]:"")) . "",((isset($_SESSION["random_answer"]))?strtolower($_SESSION["random_answer"]):"") . "",true,10);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX((isset($_POST["HiddenFields_fields"])?$_POST["HiddenFields_fields"]:"") . "","/.*/",false,11);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {

The problem appears to be that the fax number is actually required in that code. When I fill out all fields, it appears to validate properly.

I think you can fix that by updating the line:

$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidatePN((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"]:"") . "",false,true,true,5);


$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidatePN((isset($_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"])?$_POST["fieldset_group_Alternate_Phone"]:"") . "",false,true,false,5);

Thanks for that solution Ray, it worked fine. Just an FWI, I did not set validation on the additional phone number, it seems as though that particular field set its own validation. This has happened before on other forms I have made with form builder.

Thanks again
