    I need the customer to tick the box before proceeding.... not working

    Hi
    I need the customer to tick a box (accepting terms and conditions) before proceeding. I've done something wrong because the customer can proceed whether the box is ticked or not. How do I make it so that the customer cannot proceed without ticking the box?

    Here is the javascript in the body of the page:

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    function checkCheckBoxes(theForm) {
    	if (
    	theForm.CHECKBOX_1.checked == false && 
    	{
    		alert ('You didn\'t choose any of the checkboxes!');
    		return false;
    	} else { 	
    		return true;
    	}
    }
    //-->
    </script>
    and here is the HTML:

    HTML Code:
    	<div style="clear:both;font-size:16px;margin-bottom:10px;">Total Amount  : <?php echo ($voucher->currency_code." ".$voucher->symbol  . number_format($voucher->price,2));?> </div>
    	<form action="../" onsubmit="return checkCheckBoxes(this);">
    	<p><input type="CHECKBOX" name="CHECKBOX_1" value="This..."> I agree to the terms and conditions</p>
    </form>
        <form method="POST" action="<?php echo get_permalink( get_page_by_path( 'checkout' ) ) ?>">
        	<input type="hidden" name="continuepayment" value="realexpayment" />
        	<input type="hidden" name="voucherguid" value="<?php echo trim($voucher_guid);?>" />
          	<input type="submit" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-submit" value="Continue">
        </form>
    <?php
    
    } else {
    echo '<p>No coupon found</p>';
    }
    ?>
    		</section>
    	</div>
    </div>

    Thanks.

    I made that change but I'm still able to proceed without ticking that box. Anything else I could try changing? Thanks.

    i haven't noticed that there are TWO forms in your html )) your onsubmit="return checkCheckBoxes(this);" is for the form which is never being submitted! remove the first form from the markup and put that checkbox inside the second form

    I made that change but it still lets me proceed without ticking the box. This is the html I have now:

    Code:
    ?>
    	<div style="clear:both;font-size:16px;margin-bottom:10px;">Total Amount  : <?php echo ($voucher->currency_code." ".$voucher->symbol  . number_format($voucher->price,2));?> </div>
        <form method="POST" action="<?php echo get_permalink( get_page_by_path( 'checkout' ) ) ?>">
        	<input type="hidden" name="continuepayment" value="realexpayment" />
        	<input type="hidden" name="voucherguid" value="<?php echo trim($voucher_guid);?>" />
    		<p><input type="CHECKBOX" name="CHECKBOX_1" value="This..."> I agree to the terms and conditions</p>		
          	<input type="submit" class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-submit" value="Continue">
        </form>
    <?php

    And all that goes down the pan if the visitor has no javascript or it is disabled...
    Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08)
    Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz... (\\.\ Aug08)
    I want to leave this world the same way I came into it, Screaming, Incontinent & No memory!
    I laughed that hard I burst my colostomy bag... (\\.\ May03)
    Life for some is like a car accident... Mine is like a motorway pile up...

    yes that's true. to make it really required you need to have one more check at the server-side

    IMHO this might benefit from PHP and Sessions or an alternative would be to use the <noscript> option.

    Perhaps something like...
    HTML Code:
    <noscript>
        <p>To continue using this site you agree to the terms and conditions of the site, Blah Blah Blah</p>
        <a href="next_page.php?noscript=agree">I Agree</a> |  <a href="next_page.php?noscript=dontagree">I Don't Agree</a>
    </noscript>
    and have a notice that if the person has JavaScript in their browser disabled then they should turn it on because your site requires it or a suitable message.
