Validation not working & 1 field is missing in the email.

Validation not working & 1 field is missing in the email.

Hello,

2 Problems.

1. I cannot get the validation to work properly for the text_areas (I'm trying to make it so that the entry length for the text_areas are 1 Char Min and 300 Char Max).

2. The first text_area field ("Significant Changes....") results do not show up in the email.

All of the files are attached and I've included a notepad file with the webaddress to the current online form.

Could I please have some assistance with this.

Thank you!

both problems are caused by invalid form element names.



form element names must conform to the following rules:

1) You can only use letters and numbers, the only exception is the underscore "_" character. Spaces are not allowed

2) The first character in the name must be a letter.


your from element names contains spaces which is causing the problem with validation and causing them to be dropped from the email.

still some issues

Made the changes to the form, saved the form as a template, and then started from scratch by importing it into a new php document.

"Significant Changes...." is still missing from the email

&

The fields in the "Legislative" section do not validate


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

testing your files the Significant Changes section is written to the email without an issue.

The problem with the form elements in the Legislative is that they have the same name as form elements in the Regulation section.


all form elements must have unique names.

email issues

I'm still having email issues. The "Significant Changes" AND the Legislative section do not show up in the emails. I made sure label names were different as well and I started fresh again by importing the form template.

Validation works perfectly.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

in the webassist/email/templates/block.php page, try changing:

php:
$removeEnds = array();

$removeEnds[] = "_x";
$removeEnds[] = "_y";



to:

php:
$removeEnds = array();

/*$removeEnds[] = "_x";
$removeEnds[] = "_y";*/
