#1: FP 2003 Form Validation Stopped Working

Posted on 2008-04-21 00:57:43 by Mark Berry

Hi,

I'm using FP 2003 SP3, publishing to a site hosted on Windows Server 2003
R2.

A while back, I added a simple "anti-spam" field to a survey form. It just
required the user to type some specific text. It worked fine.

Today I noticed that the required fields are no longer working. I can submit
the form with all fields empty and it doesn't give any warning in IE7 or
Firefox 2. Looking at the source, I see FP added some JavaScript, but that
is apparently never invoked. I don't want a client-side validation anyway; I
want server-side.

After re-calculating hyperlinks on the target server, at least the
JavaScript validation started working again. But if I change the page on my
machine and publish it, validation stops working until I re-calculate
hyperlinks again.

Any suggestions on how to get validation working reliably? Does anyone
recommend a simple Captcha add-on that I can use instead?

Thanks,

Mark

I wound up creating an ASP form handler (modified from a version of
formmail.asp that I found online), then adding in the quite cool Captcha
from www.tipstricks.org.
