    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...
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...

    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.
    --> JavaScript Frameworks like JQuery, Angular, Node <--
    ... and please remember to wrap code with forum BBCode tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
