  • I get this error message each time I try to ‘Submit’ the form

    ‘Ooops! Looks like you have failed the security validation for this form. Please go back and try again.’

    I have gone back many times trying various combinations of the 2 digits required in the Verification section at the foot of the form, but the same error comes back.
    Is there any reason why this would happen?

    Do you have a link to your form?

    There is no ‘live’ link to the form understandably as the isn’t working (the form), and the site is currently in Maintenance Mode. If you know of a way (plugin maybe) that I can send you a link without ‘Joe Public’ seeing the site let me know.
    The form has 65 fields (online registration form for a nursery). A ‘test’ form with just 3 fields was created with the same ‘Email Details/Confirmation/Notification’ and this worked fine.

    mmuro – if you let me know when your available (time) I can take the site out of Maintenance Mode so that you can have a quick look at the page in question.
    Currently trying to figure out if it’s possible to set up a splash page like Maintenance Mode, but still have the site viewable to those who have a link to the page/site.

    The only reason you should be getting this error message is if you fail on the PHP validation, not the JS. So, the page is getting submitted, correct? One thing that comes to mind is that the Submit button value is not ‘Submit’.

    The Submit button is working fine as I’ve tried simply adding a 2 digit verification code and clicking submit, which then sends the form (things brings up another issue as some of the fields are ‘required’, so the form shouldn’t submit until these have been completed – one for another post maybe)

    Here’s the code for the Submit button:
    <input id=”sendmail” class=”submit” type=”submit” value=”Submit” name=”visual-form-builder-submit”>

    If the jQuery validation isn’t firing, then yeah, you’ll get the ‘Ooops’ error message.

    There might be a jQuery conflict from another plugin.

    Guess that might be an issue as there’s quite a few js included
