captcha and Validation installed, but page will not move on to another page.

captcha and Validation installed, but page will not move on to another page.

I've attached my file and a link to the page on the web in private, but basically I think I have set up the captcha and the server validation correctly, but I am missing some vital step, because when the captcha is filled out the page just reverts back to itself and the form data is lost. I did look through the help files but could not see any step I had missed.

What am I missing?

You would probably want to save the entries in the database and then redirect to the next page.

Your form validation is only validating that a captcha value is entered and is not blank. It isn't validating that it is correct.

Your validation failure redirect is set to go to another page, so it would only forward to the next page if the validation fails, which really doesn't make sense.

Thanks for coming back, forgive my newness. Can you tell me how I add the comparison and the redirect when successful.

I was going to add the details to the database and send an email in a processing.php page after validation, the reason being it is a long form and it seems to slow Dreamweaver down when I add it here. I'm comfortable with inserting records etc. it is just my first time using the validation, and am still a little lost, so any pointers are gratefully received!

If you want to go to another page, then you would set the form action to point to that page and add the validation on the second page.

The preferred method is to add the email on this page and redirect to the next page after the email sends with the redirect in the email server behavior.

I am still trying to grasp this, I apologize. I've sent a couple of files privately to see if you can point me in the right direction.

SOLVED

I finally figured out the step I hadn't taken. I had to add an else statement at the end. I can't remember seeing that in the instructions, but when I look back it seems logical.

In case anybody else is looking, I ended up with this code...

if ($WAFV_Errors != "") {
PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"regfull_746");
}

//This is the part I added ( I could have added code in here too...
else {

header("Location: new page to go to");

}
//

}

Thank you Ray, your comments helped me solve this. thanks for a great product!
