Page Update Not Working Correctly

Good afternoon! I have created a backend page that is updating my home page. I have created the form and all of the inputs. Everything seems to be working fine; however, when I click the Save Changes button, nothing happens. When I created the form in Dreamweaver, Dataassist gave an error but finished creating the form. I'm not sure if something got omitted or if I have errors in my php. Thank you for your assistance with this issue.

In order to support file uploads, your <form> tag should have enctype="multipart/form-data"

Most likely the form isn't updating because it is failing validation. Maybe you deleted a field that was marked as required. When that happens you may not even see the error and it becomes difficult to debug.

Update this:

php:
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {

     PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"home");
   }



To:

php:
if ($WAFV_Errors != "")  {

die($WAFV_Errors);
     PostResult($WAFV_Redirect,$WAFV_Errors,"home");
   }



That will write the error number of the line that is failing validation and allow you to figure out which one it is to correct it. It will have a number 1-67 to match the numbers at the end of each validation check above that you can use to find the correct validation that is failing.

Still Haven't Figured This Out!

I have sent you a private message.

You had some missing javascript files, and some javascript files in the wrong order on the page. I fixed those and then I added the debug code into the server validation failure section. I think you should be able to get it working from here. Let me know if you have any questions. When you are satisfied it all works, delete line 82.

I've added the validation debug code back to the page on line 90.

That will show you what validations are failing so you can debug the issue.

When I just press submit, I see:
,1,6,7,8,11,12,13,14,21,24,25,26,27,30,33,36,38,43,47,51,55,67

Those numbers represent the validation failures. 1 is on line 21, it is the graphic for home info. 6 is on line 26 and it is the home button link... you should be able to track them all down and adjust to get it to work how you want from there.
