Basic Contact form as plugin

Basic Contact form as plugin

Hi
I have created a blank PHP page and added a simple contact form to it.

I have then used a statci plugin to insert the form page into another page.

Now I know about redirecting the form to the page that the form is plgged into not the actual form page.

Problem seems to be that if the server validation fails you are returned to the page but the form is blank again and needs filling out still.

Any solution to do this correctly?

thanks

Mike

for each form element on the form, click the lightning bolt next to initial value and select the corresponding item from the Validated entries binding group.

Hi Jason
They are all set already.


Please find attached the page with the form. This is then plugged in to a page called contactus.php (outside the plugin directory)

Thanks

you have form validation on the contactus.php page at line 5 - 24:
<?php
if (isset($_POST["SimpleContact_submit_x"]) && !isset($_GET["invalid"])) {
$WAFV_Redirect = "addins/contactform1.php";
$_SESSION['WAVT_contactus_Errors'] = "";
if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
$WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
}
$WAFV_Errors = "";
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRQ((isset($_POST["Full_Name"])?$_POST["Full_Name"]:"") . "",true,1);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateEM((isset($_POST["Email_Address"])?$_POST["Email_Address"]:"") . "",true,2);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE((strtolower(isset($_POST["Security_Code"])?$_POST["Security_Code"]:"")) . "",((isset($_SESSION["captcha_Security_Code"]))?strtolower($_SESSION["captcha_Security_Code"]):"") . "",true,3);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateLE((strtolower(isset($_POST["Security_Answer"])?$_POST["Security_Answer"]:"")) . "",((isset($_SESSION["random_answer"]))?strtolower($_SESSION["random_answer"]):"") . "",true,4);
$WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRX((isset($_POST["Hidden_Field"])?$_POST["Hidden_Field"]:"") . "","/.*/",false,5);

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"contactus");
}
}
?>


this validation should not be on both the contact page and the addins/contactform1.php


this line is causing the problem:
$WAFV_Redirect = "addins/contactform1.php";


it should be:
$WAFV_Redirect = "";

Hi
Removed the lines from contactus.php I honestly do not know how they got there as I have never added validation to that page.

Now when the page is submitted it cannot reload the page you get an error saying page is unavailable so you refresh and the page loads with a blank form and the verification showing there had been a mistake during validation.

Oh and despite the failed validation the emails are still sent out.

Any ideas?

your contact us page also has a universal email behavior on it that should not be there.

Hi Jason
This jas got me I never put anything on that page and when I removed the plugin from the page the Universal email and validations removed too.

Ive re-added it but still no luck when you submit the form it will not load.
