Multiple Selections in List/Menu Not Showing

Thread began 12/12/2011 7:14 pm by mora398588 | Last modified 12/15/2011 12:28 pm by Jason Byrnes | 1324 views | 3 replies |


Multiple Selections in List/Menu Not Showing

I am using a list/menu that allows for multiple selections in my web form. When I applied UE and tested my page, not all my selections showed on the email message.

As a matter of fact, only one selection showed.

I attempted to insert spacing after each selection item in the list/menu (see attached file), but that did not do anything.

Is there a way for UE to show all selections made using a list/menu feature?

Also...the email is not showing the results of my "suffix" text field. It appears that the suffix selected using the web form is not passing through to the email message.

Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

for a multi[le select list to pass multiple values, the name must end with "[]"

<select name="Course" size="4" multiple id="Course">

<select name="Course[]" size="4" multiple id="Course">

I do not see any problem with the suffix select list that would cause the suffix to be missing from the email, but I do see issues with other elements on the page.

Form Element name may contain only Letters and Numbers. the only exception to that rule is the Underscore character.

you have elements on your page that have names containing spaces and punctuation:
<select name="Referral Source?" id="Referral_Source?" tabindex="150">

these are not valid element names.

Jason, thank you for your help.

The suggestion you provided concerning the multiple select list/menu worked great!!

However, the suffix select list/menu still does not work. I tried changing the name and id and that did nothing.

It seems to be the only thing not showing. Anyway, I do not mean to labor on this one issue. I just may toss it out, unless you have a solution.

the only thing on your page i can see causing the suffix list to not work, is the other elements on your page that use bad naming conventions.

make sure that the names of all of the elements on your page are using proper naming conventions.
