I appear to have this same problem.  The SAVE button is not visible which means I can't make changes to my forms.  Are you working on a fix?

Same here I'm on the most recent version. Can't delete or save anything. Looking for a new solution.sf-cry

I cant make it work either. I've tried deactivating cforms, uploading v14.6 from a zip-file, and reinstalling, but without success. I'm super happy (or was) to use cforms as it fits my need very adequatly, but after upgrading to the newer version of WP cforms lost all its flexibility. 


The way I see it either cforms will have to address the issue very soon (a little googling tells it's not a new problem) or we'll all have to use some other provider. Any suggestions?

Hmm, this hasn't been answered since January.

So it looks like cforms is unusable now – we can't create forms or update them since WP3.5.1. WP3.6 upgrade hasn't helped. Should we consider it dead, especially since Oliver doesn't use the forums any more? I really don't want to have to downgrade to a less secure version of WP.

Hi, same issue on my end no save button appear, but what i did in order to make my changes save,

first: do your changes,

second: in order to save your changes, add new field and that will refresh the page and automatic save your changes.

third: remove the new field you just added.

Hi all, just wanted to chime in and say that I did find a slight workaround for this. I found that the Admin Panel disappears when trying to make form changes through Google Chrome. I switched over to Internet Explorer to try and do this and was able to access the panel with no problem.

Man, this stinks. I'm converting a client's website over to a newer version of everything, but cforms is really letting me down. No submit button to save changes to the settings? I get the workaround for updating an individual form's attributes, but the Global Settings page is a total loss. That's the one I need to change.

Guess I need to switch to something else. :(

I've figured out the problem.

Whoever submitted this latest update as the stable release forgot to unhide the buttons for submitting the forms.

For example, the Global Settings page corresponds to the cforms-global-settings.php file.

In that file, starting where the code says 

<div class="cf_actions" id="cf_actions" style="display:none">

and ending with the next </div>, replace that with the following:


<div class="cf_actions" id="cf_actions">
   <input id="cfbar-showinfo" class="allbuttons addbutton" type="submit" name="showinfo" value="Show Info"/>
   <input id="cfbar-deleteall" class="jqModalDelAll allbuttons deleteall" type="button" name="deleteallbutton" value="Delete ALL cforms Data"/>
   <input id="deletetables" class="allbuttons deleteall" type="submit" name="deletetables" value="Delete Tracking Tables"/>
   <input id="backup" type="button" class="jqModalBackup allbuttons" name="backup"  value="Back Up & Restore All Settings"/>
   <input id="cfbar-SubmitOptions" type="submit" name="SubmitOptions" class="allbuttons updbutton formupd" value="Save All Settings" />

I've taken liberty with the value= attribute names because these were all blank and I couldn't remember their original values.

Do the same for the Form Settings cforms-options.php file, with the following code replacement:

<div class="cf_actions" id="cf_actions">
   <input id="cfbar-addbutton" class="allbuttons addbutton tabbed100" type="submit" name="addbutton" value="Add Button" tabindex="100">
   <input id="cfbar-dupbutton" class="allbuttons dupbutton tabbed101" type="submit" name="dupbutton" value="Duplicate Button" tabindex="101">
   <input id="cfbar-delbutton" class="allbuttons deleteall tabbed102" type="submit" name="delbutton" value="Delete All" tabindex="102">
   <input id="preset" type="button" class="jqModalInstall allbuttons tabbed103" name="" value="Install Presets" tabindex="103">
   <input id="backup" type="button" class="jqModalBackup allbuttons tabbed104" name="backup" value="Back Up Presets" tabindex="104">
   <input id="cfbar-SubmitOptions" type="submit" name="SubmitOptions" class="allbuttons updbutton formupd tabbed105" value="Save All Settings" tabindex="105">
