    Changed Form and now Submit doesn't work

    HEy all....

    I had a form written by someone else. It works no problem. I used Frontpage 5.0 to edit the form and add just one additional information request ( a drop down list to choose how they got to my site). The form looks fine. When I upload the file and fill it out the new form nothing happens when I hit either Submit or Reset buttons. All I did was insert some code to add the dropdown item. Any ideas on why it doesn't work? Does it have something to do with the cgi form? Is there some sort of compile that has to be done first on the new version? Grasping at straws....I am very confused.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi!

    Would you mind posting your current code or a link to your site??
    Should be something simple, but without seeing it, it's difficult to tell you, why the form doesn't work.

    Cheers - Pit

    If nothing happens at all, there might be a JavaScript validate function on the submit event. Have a look at the onsubmit event in the <form> element and the onclick event in the <input type="submit"> element.

    Regards.

    Hi!

    I didn't check your code further after having found this (in both snippets you posted):

    <form action="http://www.metalforms.com/cgi-bin/formcgi" method="POST">
    </form>

    After removing the closing form tag situated immediately below the opening one, everything worked for me. One little more thing: at the very end of your code, you have '</html'. I am sure this is a copy/paste mistake. Just make sure it is '</html>'.

    Good luck - Pit

    Thinking further

    Doesn't that strike you as weird or unusual that it would work in one but not the other? With same code in that section you suggest I change?

    Doesn't make sense to me. But I'll try it and see what happens.

    Thanks again.

    I simply clicked 'submit', nothing happened and I started looking for mistakes in your HTML. That's all. Hopefully, you get it to work. If not: just post again. Good luck!

    pittimann...I can't get this to $##@ work!

    Okay..

    I brought the file that didn't work into Frontpage and tried to take out the </form> piece that appeared after POST. Frontpage kept putting it back after I saved the file, like it belonged and the syntax was only correct with it there. SO I edited it out in notepad and tried it and the same thing happened....nothing. No reset, no submit. Like I said, the code is virtually identical except for the section I added for the selection box. One works, one doesn't. Anyone?

    Hi!

    One little thing: 'http://www.metalforms.com/cgi-bin/formcgi' in your form's action. Shouldn't that be: 'http://www.metalforms.com/cgi-bin/form.cgi'? Could you please point that out? I would put a working version online then, which you can grab and use.

    Cheers - Pit

    Right ....except if you look

    they both have that same syntax...formcgi, not form.cgi. One works, one doesn't.

    I pulled the file that did work and made my edits to that file....simply by adding the section with the <options=XXX>.

    This is just goofy.

    Just have a look at the code, Frki posted a minute before your latest post.

    And as far as the period in 'form.cgi' is concerned: I guess it is necessary because I assume that the form is supposed to submit to a file with that name and not to the default file in a folder called 'formcgi'.

    Cheers - Pit

    Pitt, is works with forms action 'formcgi', not form.cgi, whatever it is, file without extension, or default file in formcgi dir.

    form with action 'form.cgi' rises error 404, file not found.
