[resolved] 404 errors on submit (intermittent) (2 posts)

    I've actually solved this problem but wanted to add it here incase anyone else encounters the same thing and could use the solution. Also, I suspect that there is something the developers could do to correct this issue in future updates.

    I was getting 404 errors on the submission of a form (though only intermittently). The problem turned out to be that I had labelled a field asking for the name of an emergency contact "name." It turns out that having the name value of a field as name="name" will cause 404 errors.

    This would be a bad idea, for example:
    <input style="text-align:left; margin:0;" type="text" id="fscf_email5" name="name" value="" />

    The reason for the intermittent error was because the field was not required and not everyone was filling it out.

    Discovering this issue took some time so I hope someone else will benefit from this - I've no idea why this produces 404 errors so if someone can explain the magic I would certainly be interested.
