    Question error page

    I created an error page for my form however I can't get it to pop up when making errors filling out form. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    (start of page)(errorpage)
    <?php
    session_start();
    $error = $_SESSION[error];
    ?>

    (generated Html for my form)
    <FORM name="Register" method="POST" action="action.php" enctype="multipart/form-data">
    <INPUT type="text" style="position:absolute;left:60px;top:51px;width: 216px;z-index:5" size="27" name="Name-RA" value="">

    </FORM>

    I have no hidden fields and both the errorpage and the contact are .PHP
    My thank you page works but no matter what you type in the fields on the form it send data to my email. Thanks in advance.

    Default Re: error page

    You have used the ABVFP system of fieldname extensions, but you are NOT using ABVFP to process your form. I doubt that this "action.php" script has any of ABVFP's features, and, of course, i don't know if there are lines of code to direct to an error page if errors are encountered, i even doubt that there is code for error detection. If you wish, post here your script, or download and install ABVFP from here

    Red face Re: error page

    So are you saying I should start from stratch using the ABVFP. Cause I just need to get my error page to work. I like to put parameters on each field (name, email, address, etc.) so I receive legit information. I created an error page Im just stuck at trying to get it work if someone fills the form out wrong.

    Validation can be done:
    1: using Javascript
    2. using a custom made php script
    3. using ABVFP which is php but requires no hand coding, as it comes with a very simple validation system.

    What i was saying, is that your script, is NOT ABVFP, so i don't see how it will work with ABVFP's validation system. Even the error page, i don't know how did you make it.

    It would, i beleive, be easier to keep the form, since most of it is ok, and install ABVFP.
