forms inquiry

with the form on the checkout page. something came up. A customer made an order and entered a PO box address to send to. i found out my post does not post to PO boxes.

is there a way that by chance if a user inputs the words "PO Box" into either of the address fields on checkout and submits, i would get an error saying "we only accept residential address's only"??

USe server validation on the checkout form.

for the address fields Use the Restrict Content validation type. for details on adding server validation to the checkout form see the "Add server validation to your web forms" tutorial on the Videos tab of the Data Bridge support page:

In the Don't Allow box, type "PO Box" select begins with and click the plus button to add it to the list of content that is not allowed.

repeat for each possible iteration of PO Box, for example "P.O. Box" etc...

i did as you said and it inserted a code but there is an error in the insert, here the error is in line 9.

1 <?php
2 if ($_SERVER["REQUEST_METHOD"] == "POST") {
3 $WAFV_Redirect = "checkout.php";
4 $_SESSION['WAVT_checkout_743_Errors'] = "";
5 if ($WAFV_Redirect == "") {
6 $WAFV_Redirect = $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"];
7 }
8 $WAFV_Errors = "";
9 $WAFV_Errors .= WAValidateRT(no po box . ""," po box| po box, p.o. box| p.o. box, Po Box| Po Box, PO BOX| PO BOX, P.O. BOX| P.O. BOX, po BOX| po BOX",true,1);
10
11 if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
12 PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"checkout_743");
13 }
14 }
15 ?>
