cforms widget showing wrong form

Please replace the ??? with your data!


[desc]:
_The C-forms widget is only showing the default form. Even if I change the default form, it keeps showing the standard "My Fieldset" form. If add more than one form as a widget, they all show this form.

Does anyone have a solution for this problem

Hi – Did this issue get resolved – I have the same issue. All pages set to display different variations the tell a freind form only show the first form produced.

I hope there's a solution, and quickly, otherwise it sinks the functionality I'm after.

Cheers

I found that using the 'insert form' button on the Tiny Mce editor made the different forms display but the code I was using to check whether 'TAF' option was checked did not work.

So problem solvd here – not sure if this helps anyone else.

Cheers

I have the sma problem.  Only the default form is displayed in the widgit section.  In a page, any form can be displayed.

Never heard of "sma"…

My crystal ball tells me that…

  1. …your URL is …hm wait,  no I'm drawing a blank
  2. …cforms version is 5.3
  3. …WP version is 2.1
  4. …problem description:
    you have setup 499 forms, configured all of them to be TAF and WP comment forms and have changed custom code

troubleshooting can be so easy…Wink

I'm also getting the default form showing up in the sidebar.  I've placed it there as a widget.

You can see it at the bottom of the right side column at http://tucson-fha-loans.com

I just upgraded to version 10.3 and am using the 2.7 version of WP.

I's sure the fix is obvious, but sometimes the obvious is not so…

Thanks

It's not an obvious fix, since I can't reproduce it.

I'm happy to help troubleshoot, but that requires some form of access.

…anyone mind giving me access to their environments?

(please use my contact form at the top or my email in cforms.php)

I'm having the same issue. I've emailed you a login so you can check it out. As it stands, I'm using the most recent version of Wordpress and Cforms I believe. I've never tried to use a form in the sidebar widget before this, so I'm not sure if it's a new problem for me or not. I will say that the form I'm TRYING to use is the basic Newsletter form that Cforms provides, in case it may be some type of issue with that.

Major breakthrough. Apparently it's a WP theme issue. In Jane's case the root of the problem was the way her theme of choice (Flexibility theme) did not properly register its new/own sidebars.

Ie. this was the original code:

    register_sidebar(array(
        'name' => 'Sidebar_left',
        'before_widget' => '',
        'after_widget' => '',
        'before_title' => '<h2>',
        'after_title' => '</h2>',
    ));

which works ok for widgets that do not use any options/parameters, but breaks the ones which do.

This fixes things (you may need to apply proper CSS to format the <li> tag to your liking):

    register_sidebar(array(
        'name' => 'Sidebar_left',
        'before_widget' => '<li id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
        'after_widget' => "</li>\\n",
        'before_title' => '<h2>',
        'after_title' => '</h2>',
    ));

I'm having this problem but I can't figure out how to fix it (I am brand new to wordpress in general and using cforms in particular).  We had two forms, a "contact us" form that is in the sidebar of every page, and a membership form that's in the body of one page. I just tried to create a third form, changed the styling, which caused the membership form to now be displayed in the sidebar of every page.  I deleted the new form and changed the styling back to the original one, but it's still showing the wrong form in the sidebar.  Can you give me some pointers on where exactly I need to look to input the correct form to show in the sidebar?

 

Site is http://www.seaturtlefoundation.org.  I'm using cforms Version v8.5.2, and WordPress 3.1.1.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
