Using Cforms in a lightbox in Wordpress, and page refreshes on submit, closing the lightbox.
August 1, 2011

Hello! I'm using cforms inside of a lightbox. Is there a way to keep it from refreshing the page when the submit button is clicked? This closes the lightbox, and you can't see the success/error message. I have Ajax enabled in the CMS. I'm just using a very basic version of a jquery lightbox. Here's my code. Thanks!


    <script type="text/javascript">
     $("#lightbox, #lightbox-panel").fadeIn(300);
     $("#lightbox, #lightbox-panel").fadeOut(300);

        <div id="show-panel">CONTACT US</div>
        <div id="lightbox-panel" class="contactlightbox">
        <?php insert_cform(1);?>
        <p style="float: left;">*Required fields</p>
        <p align="center">
        <div id="close-panel">X</div>
        </div><!-- /lightbox-panel -->

        <div id="lightbox"> </div><!-- /lightbox -->

I just had to implement a work around of types.. so people will get an alert message if they don't enter all of the required information, and when they submit the form. Here's the code incase anyone else is having this problem and they need a hacked work around..



        function isEmail (emailentry) {
                var isEmail_re       = /^\s*[\w\-\+_]+(\.[\w\-\+_]+)*\@[\w\-\+_]+\.[\w\-\+_]+(\.[\w\-\+_]+)*\s*$/;
                   return String(emailentry).search(isEmail_re);
        var name = "";
        var email = "";
        var message = "";
            name = ($('#cf_field_2').val());
            email = ($('#cf_field_3').val());
            message = ($('#cf_field_4').val());
            if( isEmail(email) == -1){
                    alert('Please enter a valid E-mail address');
                return false;
                }else if (name!="" && email!="" && message!=""){
                    alert('Thank you for submitting your message!');
                    alert('Please fill in all the required fields');
                return false;

I'm running into the same issue but the hacked work-around isnt all that nice. Did someone ever find a proper solution for this?
