Hey! I'm having a small problem with a custom question that defaults to the users age. I'm having problems validating the input when the form is submitted.

For my custom question I have this code (this part works):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I want the user to be able to change the age I default the question to. I also want to make sure that input is a valid number so I wrote a few lines to do that.

In the "Before Submit" area I have this: (my custom question has an id of 15)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Here is where the problem comes in! When the forum is submitted or previewed the text in the age field shows up but my "Before Submit" code does not take effect. So if I were to type "cool" in the age field it shows "cool" in the preview instead of showing 18 as I would expect (type casting 'cool' to an int should return zero, zero is less than 18 so it should be set to 18).

Any help would be great! I'm sure it's just something little I am missing. I know what I am doing may seem a little silly out of context but I want it to work this way.

Non-registered users can submit forms if you desire. But using it to create new users is not a function

If it helps any I've Installed* Rated 5 Stars and Nominated as its well deserved for all 3 in my opinion. I can do anything with this.

My problem is this. In the vb form options you can set it for the button to show up in your navbar which I have done. I use a custom template so what I need to do is assign the button a defined height and width along with a class for it to blend nicely with my layout. I have looked in the header and other locations that I can think of looking for anyway to add my desired values but I never see any reference of the button along side the other navbar buttons. Where do I need to be to achieve this?

My sincere thanks
Atm, you have to edit a plugin.

But in v3.7 (available very soon) you can just customise the template form_navbar

In Before Submit plugin remove any comments or use instead:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

eg.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If we have like 100 people submit the forms, may be the result can be filtered by one of the choice in a form question.

maybe Ajax can be used here.

Very much looking forward to it.

2. it's hard coded atm.

3. you'll be missing two javascript files, which are needed for javascript sort table
all are welcome news.

Thanks, bananalive...

One thing I've noticed, though...

This is displayed on the forms..."Please Note: Questions proceeded by an asterisk (*) are compulsory." Actually, the asterik (*) does not proceed the question, but appears after the question. Also...anyway to change this and make the asterisk (*) red in color?

Updated to 3.7 beta and upload the js files. To sort column, just click on the column header name and an arrow down will appear next to the header name.

This is not too obvious to people since it's hard to tell you can sort. Maybe we can add a filter section on top to display only the columns we want in case we have 20+ columns?

"Proceed" means "to come after." Precede means before. The coder is correct; your vocabulary is backwards!

I've been having the same problem as others in that when I create a new form and then try to save changes to it, I get redirected to my first forum without the changes being saved.

I was running an old version of VBSeO but even tried disabling it and uninstalling it and still have the issue occuring.

bananalive,
Can you give instruction for people who want to edit the form result table template to add/arrange the column, etc

Also, is the feature for people to delete their own form enabled in this 3.7beta version yet?

Thanks

Wow. Great work!
I haven't read thru all 81 pages of comments, yet, but perhaps you'd forgive me....
