    Default Linking sumit button to a Success page

    Dear Forum members,

    For the life of me I cannot find a way to write the path to the success page in the success URL field that will work in NOF 10.

    eg. http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/thankyou.html does not work.



    Any ideas please?

    It isn't something simple (but so easily done) like the page's own name
    being misspelt or having an upper case character is it?

    Default Further to forms handling

    Dear GotFusion,

    Thank you,

    I followed that tutorial right through:

    1. I drew the forms box with the forms handler component on my formshandler page
    2. On the page tab selected the 'success' page ( no caps or spaces)
    3. When I clicked Ok, the box filled with smeared text reading: "Forms2 Handler" and I was unable to create any fields or field labels text boxes of error handling choices.

    From Garry to GotFusion,

    Hence I searched for and found another tutorial which showed a different way to do a form: http://netobjects.com/en/nof/10/00/d...lp/webhelp.htm

    1. I followed these steps and designed a form etc. with First name, Lastname, Address, email, phone number, check box and drop-down llist - all work just fine!

    2. Result: My form works and after remote publishing I tested the form and filled it in. I get the contents back to the email address specified!

    3. But when the submit button is clicked the success page on my site (http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au) does not appear. Instead I get a blank white page with the message:

    An error occurred. Please contact the site administrator.
    Error Code: 500

    Designing the form this way of course does not allow me to select the success page by clicking; instead I have to fill it in by:

    1. In the page design view, Right clicking the submit button and
    2. selecting Form General Properties of the Forms Button Properties and me putting http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/thankyou.html in the field with the default filling "success URL"
    3. I typed: http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/thankyou.html where "thankyou" is the name of my success page.


    I stress again: I get a reply e-mail returning with the data I filled in from a browser accessing the remote-published site.

    NetObjects thoroughly confused,

    Garry

    Have you checked that the form thankyou.html is actually in the root of the
    server page and not in a subfolder. If, for example, it was in the html
    subfolder the url to reach it would be
    http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/html/thankyou.html .

    Gary, it appears that the thankyou.html page doesn't exist. Did you create a thankyou.html page? You will need to create the page you want to be your thank you page and then point to it with the url. In this case you should have created a thankyou.html page and uploaded it to the server. That page currently does not exist on your server.

    I take it back, it looks like this is the address to your thank you page: http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/distan.../thankyou.html

    If you want it to be at the address you posted on your first post, just move that page to your root folder, ie: public_html, www, or whatever your hosting company calls it.

    Now that Winnie The Pooh (I love that handle) has discovered your thankyou
    page, you can either move it, as suggested by Winnie, or change the url
    connected to your submit button to:
    http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/distan.../thankyou.html

    Thankyou to all of you who have provided advice - I have been off line for a good while visiting a sick father in Perth.

    Thanks to Tinkerer and David for your help.

    So, no I am not rude by not replying until now.


    The on-line currently "up" site is out of date - I am producing a newer version with downloadable lecture files at present and am trying to get my brain back in gear as to where I was.


    Current status: I put the full path name http://www.archaeo-pro.com.au/distan.../thankyou.html in the success URL field of the submit button andI think it actually worked once when published locally.

    But now clicking submit still sends me an e-mail as planned but instead of showing the success page I get the html code of the page rather than the page display itself.


    Any ideas resident sages and wisemen?
