Certain form values not being submitted  (See more user questions)


My pleasure to assist.

You don't need the square brackets for those field names in your form.
Instead of this:






...change them to this:






Remember to change the values in your email template file, like ff<date>

You have some form fields with periods in the name, like this one:


I'm not sure off the top of my head, but this could cause a problem. Remove
the period altogether or replace it with an underscore, like so:




Remember to change the value in your email template, like ff<eventdate1> or

You have this for the primary email field:

<input type="text" class="REQUIRED LENGTH_INPUT EMAIL" name="email_1"
id="Email1_ID" size="25"/>

For some parts of the script to work correctly (email validation for
example) you need to name the email field "email", like so:

<input type="text" class="REQUIRED LENGTH_INPUT EMAIL" name="email"
id="Email1_ID" size="25"/>

The HTML validator is showing 35 errors on your form page. If you can't get
it to work by doing the above steps, try fixing the validation errors.

If you are new to this, take some time to read through the instructions in
the script (there's mention there of using "email" for the email field name)
and have a read through my support section too, which you can get here:

Don't worry though, most people are new to this, that's why they come to me!

Any questions, just let me know.

Best wishes.

I had to change the name of form fields , like earlier form field date with
many options was modified to date_[1]

and it started giving the value in output.

not able to get date and similar fields.

Thank you for your purchase, good to hear from you.

I got an error on that link you gave me.

Make sure there are no validation errors on the form page:

Also make sure that the form fields have unique names.

If you give me the URL, I will check it out for you.

Best wishes.
