Captcha not working :(

Captcha not working :(

I have UE4 and the Form Toolkit and I'm working in DW CS3. I've watched the tutorial video and read a whole bunch of threads on this - but my form is not working.

These are the steps I took to build the form (in the order recommended by Jason):

1) Created a form in DW with 3 simple fields (with validation) and a submit button.
Form settings are: <form name="form1" method="post" action="">

2) Added captcha using Form Toolkit (following video tutorial)

3) Added validation using Form Toolkit (following video tutorial) - I used "like entry" and added text next to the Captcha text box "Invalid code, please try again."

4) Added the UE "Create Email" function

The form looks right, but no matter what I key in the CAPTCHA field the form simply refreshes and no email is sent out.

Here is the URL: signup_test2.php

HELP!?

It looks like the validation code is out of synch, which explains why the error message doesn't show, but still doesn't explain why it fails in the first place... It could be an issue with the Session settings on the server...

Try adding this to a visible area of the page:

<?php var_dump($_SESSION); ?>

I think you should probably find and replace:

find: signuptest_763
replace with: signuptest2_252

I did those two things - same result.

What was the point of the code change (I'm no coder!)?

Also - shouldn't the replace be signup_test2_252 not signuptest2_252 ? Or no?

Thanks!

Tried signup_test2_252 still no luck.

And I see the array thing on the page - it that what I'm supposed to see?

The empty array means that the session variables aren't being stored properly.

You should see values in that array if it were working properly.

Who is your hosting provider? You may need to contact them and ask why session variables aren't working.

The clients host is ipower.com - I will open a ticket. Will keep you posted.

Is that why it's not working?

BOOM! That was it Ray! Working slick now!!

Here's what the tech guys said:

Ramon Riley: The session.save_path for your account was not set properly. I have set the proper path to resolve the issue.

Thanks for your help!

oops - spoke too soon.

The page is working if the captcha is entered correctly, but now the page has a message at the top:
"Sending To: suenoyes@nocoweb.com, info@sundayssalonspa.com... Success" and the "fail" error is permanently displayed next to the captcha text box :(

Here's the URL (I renamed the page): signup.php

Sounds like some debug code was left on the page... yeah... remove this line:



<?php echo(isset($_SESSION["waue_signup_test2_1_Log"])?$_SESSION["waue_signup_test2_1_Log"]:""); ?>
