Form builder is difficult to trouble shoot because creates lots of code doesn't it?

Form builder is difficult to trouble shoot because creates lots of code doesn't it?

I am trying to get a form to fit a particular design that I have in place, but it's proving to be very difficult! The amount of code created by the form builder is incredible isn't it? Is the next version of this extension going to be cleaning up the amount of code produced? I am looking at eight divs nested one inside another before I get to a form field... formItem, formGroup, lineGroup, fullCollumnGroup, fullColumnGroup (again), errorGroup, fieldPair and finally fieldGroup.

I have created a form myself, and it's so much tidier to look at, and it's looking exactly how I want it to on the page, but for the life of me I can't get it to work with spry validation that I've added (won't even register that I am clicking the button), and when I follow your video tutorial about form builder toolkit and adding captcha and server validation, I can enter whatever I want in the captcha field and the form submits. I can't get the validation behaviour to recognise that there is an error in the captcha and display an error message, and the form seems to be submitted because the text fields have been emptied and no error message is displayed.

I don't even know how to start trouble shooting this. Any ideas?

In order to offer the design flexibility that is available in tCSS Form Builder requires the complex div structure.

For the Spry validation, make sure that you have uploaded the spry assets folder.

for the captcha validation, make sure that you are using the correct session that is created by the capcha image.

if you need further assistance, send a link to the page and a copy of the php file so I can look at the code.
