cforms popup blank
February 3, 2012

When i click the button to insert a form, the popup comes up blank. I've cleared the cache, still have the problem no matter what browser I use.


I have no idea where to start to troubleshoot.

  • are you using a multi-site setup?
  • SSL?
  • moved your site?
  • checked the FAQS (cforms.js / abspath.php)?
  • what version of cforms are you on?
  • what version of WP are you on?

…just a couple of things to consider.

WP version 3.3.1

cforms version 11.7.1

no multi site

no ssl

I have checked abspath/cforms.js and pointed to the domain, cleared the cache, restarted the browser (tried this with both firefox and chrome)

moved the site about a month ago (and actually never changed the abspath/js) but only just started having this problem about a week ago.


specifically, the input field settings popup is blank and the popup to insert cforms into a page is blank.


<?php $abspath = ';; ?> is the correct abspath format right? and 

var sajax_uri = '…..&#039;; is the correct cforms.js format?


something else I noticed, in the editor, it shows that both of those files are not active

abspath.php must include an absolute file path, what you have there is a URL.

here is one way to retrieve the absolute path:

  1. add a new form
  2. add an upload field to this form & save changes/settings
  3. go to "File Upload Settings" and copy the path under Upload directory (absolute path)
  4. cut path just before ../../wp-content/… 



absolute path:

The absolute path is not


there should be an ending slash



putting that ending slash worked for me.

thanks for help.
