Selectfield values from Form to Page fields randomly refusing to save

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys!

I ran into some really strange behavior when trying to save selected Selectfieldtype values

from a form to a select field in a page. I have three different dropdowns in this page, all

with different values and they randomly get saved en sometimes they don't. 

This is my setup:

Form                                                       Page:

Dropdown a:                                           Dropdown a:

-                                                               - V

-                                                               -

- V                                                            -

Dropdown b:                                           Dropdown b:

-                                                               - V

-                                                               -

- V                                                            -

Dropdown c:                                            Dropdown c:

-                                                               -V

-                                                               -

- V                                                            -

I have no idea what is causing this since it happens completely randomly,

does anybody have any ideas? Like, would it make more sense to only use

a text field on the page side to recieve the value? and if so, why?

Thanks in advance :)



PS: In the screenshot you can see the three filters that pick up the dropdown values and

show the entries that are equal to the filter. And you can see the dropped values in the

The select fields I was using on the page seemed to want to use a single non-spacing term of word as a identiefier object,

and the second as value. I only inserted one value per line, with breaks, and those were the ones that did not work.

I solved this by changing the fields on my page to text fields which contain the value supplied by the select field from the

form. And I think I could have doen it by inserting the value after for example: 1:=Value One.

Hope this might help somebody one day :)

      I have a problem and I don't understand. I have a profield table with different fields and a select field.
      I did like it's instructed and put "value=label".
      But when I'm trying to output the select field with var_dump (to debug),  it's indicated that the field is a string that contains the value.
      Why is it a string ?  when I try  myselectfield->value  or label or title I have an error saying I'm trying to get a property on a non-object ...
      Anyone ?

      When I create a form with FormBuilder, is there a way to stop it from showing the vertical scroll bar on the right side of the form page??? For example look at this page. Report Writing&course_date=December 6, 2017
      Why does it even have a scroll bar?

      Hi all,
      A few of our clients are having issues receiving emails sent via form builder after a client submits a form.
      They display fine in certain clients but in Outlook especially the body content is either missing or the raw code is displayed.
      Does anybody have any ideas why this might be the case or any ideas about how to diagnose the issue?
      Not sure if this is an issue with the emails themselves or the server from which they are being sent.
      Just wondering if anyone else has experienced anything similar?

      hey there,
      i'm using processwire for the first time, so maybe it's a dumb question. but i'm trying to have an options field which values are the users of the processwire. i don't need the values to be displayed, it's just for the administration of the page. but each time a new user is created / a user is deleted the options field should be updated automatically. is something like that possible?

      I need your assistance please. I purchased the module FormBuilder. Unfortunately, the module discontinued delivering customer submissions to e-mail box specified in the module settings. Direct mailing to the e-mail box works OK. The module settings stays the same and are correct, like "Send e-mail to administrator(s) is checked. The last version of FormBuilder 3.0 has been installed. Please advise how to resolve the issue becase I cannot get orders from customers anymore (((
