[resolved] Dagon Design Form Mailer: field values disappear with manual form code (3 posts)

    I'm using Dagon Design's Secure Form Mailer, v. 5.41, and having a problem.

    I've used the manual form code option, in which you can copy the generated code and put it in a manual form box and then tweak the HTML if desired.

    The problem is that if the user makes an error in filling out the form, when the page reloads with the error messages, all the values from the fields disappear.

    This doesn't happen if you don't use the manual form code option. (I noticed that at least one other user on the comments area on the actual plugin site had the same problem, but so far, no resolution has been posted.)

    Does anyone familiar with this plugin know why this might be happening?

    I emailed Matt, the creator, and he gave me an explanation -- the short answer is that right now, this is just the way it works. Since no one responded to this question, I'm assuming it's not of great interest, so I won't bother to post Matt's lengthier explanation -- by the time someone else has interest in the question, a new version of the plugin may have already addressed it.

    That's been my problem also. I hope there's a solution already. Another problem is the select always prompts even though you have put a value on it.
