Two Forms on One Page

Two Forms on One Page

I'd like to put two forms on one page. I've created a site where there are two forms on different pages and it's not that difficult. I'm having a heck of a time with two different forms on the one page though.

Intention: a small newsletter signup in the footer on every page (working well) and a larger form in addition to the footer form on a Contact Us sort of page.

I think I'm not keeping straight what WA files can be used for multiple purposes and what needs to be dedicated to one purpose.

If anyone out there can help, I'd be grateful.

Thanks,
Pete

when you have 2 forms on one page, you need to make sure that the have unique names for the submit button.


you also need to edit the server side code that processes the form to use the submit button as the trigger instead of a generic POST.

Hi Jason,
Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure how to go about the second point. Are there any available summaries or examples?

Thx,
Pete

on the cantact for solution pack contacty us page, the likne of code that trigers validation for the contact form looks like this:
[php]
if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
[php]


the line of code that trigers the email to be sent looks like this:

php:
if ((($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") && (isset($_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"]) && strpos(urldecode($_SERVER["HTTP_REFERER"]), urldecode($_SERVER["SERVER_NAME"].$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"])) > 0) && isset($_POST)))     {




the submit button is named Submit:

php:
<input type="submit" value="Submit" class="inputButton"/>




so change those 2 lines of code to:

php:
if ((isset($_POST["Submit"])))     {




so that the form is only processed if the submit button is pressed.

Hi Jason,

Thanks for this - I'll give it a try. For the line of code you provide:

if ((isset($_POST["Submit"]))) {

If I have a second form, should the code read

if ((isset($_POST["Submit2"]))) {

for the second submit? (Or whatever I end up calling it...)

Thanks,
Pete

Still Stuck...

Hi again,
I finally got back to this project and I'm afraid that I'm still stuck. Here's the page scenario for a Contact Us page with two contact forms on it. I've called this page contact.php.

In the main area, a contact form for general use. (I've put the Contact Solution Form files in a directory called 'contact_main/'. In the footer on this page and every other page in the site, I put a newsletter signup, directing the CSF files to another directory called 'contact_footer/'.

The code for the page called contact.php is attached as a zipped text file. The specific error I'm getting (aside from no email) is: Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/resc9892/public_html/tcp/contact.php:13) in /home/resc9892/public_html/tcp/contact_main/WA_ValidationToolkit/WAVT_Scripts_PHP.php on line 68

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
Pete

see the following post for details on troubleshooting the headers already sent error:
showthread.php?t=19285


please dont past the php code into a text file.

please send the php page instead.

I think I've cleared the header error now, thanks. I've also removed the txt file (with apologies...) Now to focus on that two-form question. I've attached the .php file as directed.

Thanks,
Pete
