[resolved] Unable To Save Additional Fields (4 posts)

    I am using your form builder (as I do for all my sites) to create a lengthy form. I have entered 158 form fields and am now no longer able to save new fields. I can add the field, enter details, but when I save the fields save without details (or) layout specifications. I have picked though the plugin and I do not see anything that should limit the number of fields... I can enter manually through the database, but when I save on the admin side it blows out my manual entries.

    Please help! I have an hour and a half+ in the form and that much troubleshooting it. I'm simply stumped! Thanks...

    Wow! 158 form fields is certainly a lot.

    What you are seeing is a server's technical limitations on how much data can be sent. See this answer in the FAQ for more info.

    I'd recommend you split your form into two forms. You can then redirect to the second form's URL.

    Humm... this isn't that big of a form in my opinion. I've built employment applications with well over 300. Still scratching my head as our post size is set to 1gb. I know it's not a physical limitation of the server. There has plenty of storage and 64gb of ram. Any other thoughts before I scrap what I did in the plugin and write it in php? Your plugin is so much faster! lol.

    I will explore ways to handle large amounts of data when saving, but I don't have any timeline for you.
