Hi all,

I have installed Magento 1.6.0.0 and installed the free webforms.

I’ve set the file permissions to 664 and the folder permissions to 775.
Captcha code is installed (first tested it empty) too.

I only get Powered by Webforms but no webform.

This extension is installed in a Magento 1.5.1.0 installation and works fine??

What is causing this problem?

###### UPDATE #####

Hmm, I solved it.

You really have to read the manual on this one (STEP 4) which I copied from the site:

4. If you are using custom theme package copy WebForms template files to theme folders.

1) app / design / frontend / default / default / template / webforms -> app / design / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / template /
2) app / design / frontend / default / default / layout / webforms.xml -> app / design / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / layout / webforms.xml
3) skin / frontend / default / default / webforms -> skin / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / webforms

In my case in the app/design/frontend/default/default/template folder the webforms folder wasn’t there.
So copy this folder into it and it works.

I hope this helps other people out.

Br,

Stevan

Hi! Thanks a lot for the great extension!
I have a question/suggestion: why don’t you use standard Zend’ Captcha mechanism, implemented in magento in <Forgot password> form? It looks pretty nice in comarison with ugly reCaptcha, IMHO.

I’ve got the same issue, except when I copied the files/folders over, the field names appear, but no text boxes?!?!  What did I do wrong, this is my first time trying to edit Magento.

Hi Greenfire1,

Did you check your file permissions in Magento.

Could you be more specific which folders you copied and where to?

Var and media are 777, everything else is 755...administrator role is set to All

I performed step 4:

4. If you are using custom theme package copy WebForms template files to theme folders.

1) app / design / frontend / default / default / template / webforms -> app / design / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / template /
2) app / design / frontend / default / default / layout / webforms.xml -> app / design / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / layout / webforms.xml
3) skin / frontend / default / default / webforms -> skin / frontend / ##CUSTOM THEME## / default / webforms

I just don\’t get why they won\’t show, is it javascript error? css? html?

Hi Greenfire1,

I’ve taken a look at your site.

This is, as far as I can see, a css issue with your current template.

There’s nog css set for the form.

Hello,
We are running version 1.6.2 and are having problems getting the Success Message to show on our live server.  The form functions correctly in all aspects except for showing the success message.  At this point, whenever a form is submitted it just reloads the page with a blank form.

It is however working correctly on our dev server.

The only major difference between the servers is we are using a Varnish Cache Server for our live site.  Could the varnish cache server be the problem, and if not what steps should I take to start trouble shooting my problem?

Thanks,
Paul

Hi there,

If you don’t want to use Captcha please do not fill in the fields Public key and Private key.

Cheers,

Steve

Has anyones submit button suddenly stopped working?  I turned off AJAX, verified cross-browser, still dead in the water.

Once my logged in user has submitted a profile form, I want that the next time they login, they do not see the blank form again.
Either they can view the form with the fields pre-populated so they can edit and update. Instead of updating it again from scratch.

Please let me know how I can do this
