Support » Plugin: Events Made Easy Frontend Submit » Form not submitting correctly

  • Resolved dietrichmd


    Straight out of the box….copied the forms.php to template folder, that’s the only change.

    Form, when submitted, correctly creates the new location, but does not create an event, then returns the user to the form, regardless of the success page setting.

    Any ideas would be super helpful.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • I should add that this happens when both logged in and logged out.

    What is the setting of “Always show success page”? And the setting “State for new event”?

    I have set allways show to both yes and no, and state for new event is set to draft. No draft is created. I’ve set it to publish and nothing live is created either.

    And is there anything in the webserver logfiles? If no event is created, it should be because of a php error. I’ll check it here too.

    Btw: I just tested on my public site the submit as guest and draft: works ok. Also as logged in user the creation works fine.

    Well, the logs were helpful but not in a logical way. They showed nothing regarding this plugin, but another one was tossing an error saying invalid directory or something fo the sort.

    Turns out, when I change domain names, it changed the home directory name and some db entries didn’t get changed. Updated those to reflect the new home directory and things appear to be running as advertised.

    Thanks for the direction.

    I have the same problem but on a clean install of wp, not in the root directory.
    Can you tell me a little more of how you fixed this?
    Thnk you!

    in a nutshell, if i recall, the plugin was trying to write to one /home/user1/public/directory and since i had changed the domain name, it also changed the username to /home/user2//public and the plugin did not like that.

    I can’t really remember how I fixed it, but that gave me the starting point and I hope it will you too.

    @dietrichmd : I think/hope you were talking about the other plugin that caused issues. The frontend submit plugin only uses your wp settings to detect your upload folder (in case you want to upload something via the frontend submit form), so changing the wp settings has an immediate effect. Otherwise nothing is written to file, only db.

    Cant get it to work.

    it writes the location data but no event data.
    I tried moving form.php to other locations in the locate_template array but that dosnt work.
    What can i try?

    Turned captcha off in Events Made Easy plugin, not in Events Made Easy Frontend Submit.
    Now it works!
