Something inserts "/processwire/" in my form label

I have a simple front-end password update form like this:

Spoiler

<form method=post id=welcomeform>
<h4>Choose a new password</h4>
	
	<div class=field>
	<label for=pass>New Password</label>
	<input id=pass type=password name=pass placeholder='new password'>
	</div>
	
	<div class=field>
	<label for=pass2>New Password (Confirm)</label>
	<input id=pass2 type=password name=pass_confirm placeholder='new password (confirm)'>
	</div>

	<button type=submit name=welcomeform value='Send'>Set password</button>
</form>

 

In the browser the label of the second field shows up as follows:

Quote

new \processwire\password(confirm)

WTH?!

I can't figure out what is changing the label, what is inserting /processwire/ and reformatting the thing. Is this something in PW? A "helpful" thing that browsers do?

Edit:

The problem disappears if I simply rename the second field to 'Confirm Password'.

So my problem is solved, but I'll leave this here in case this is some kind of bug.

Valid or not, it is not commonly used and is difficult to read. Nonetheless, it appears you are creating a new password object passing confirm as a parameter. Do you have the namespace set?

rick, yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Leaving out quotes where they are not necessary is following the html specs by the letter and makes the html a lot cleaner and easier to read than the common quotes within double-quotes within single quotes mess - my text editor gives the classes and ids their own fun colors.

So I guess something in PW somehow interpreted 'new password (confirm)' as code that it has to do something with, instead of plain placeholder text? That bit was inside quotes btw.

      Hello @ all
      I want to share a new module with you, which makes the creation and validation of forms easy.  Take a look at the following example of a simple contact form:
      // A very simple example of a contactform for demonstration purposes $form = new Form('contactform'); $gender = new Select('gender'); $gender->setLabel('Gender'); $gender->addOption('Mister', '0'); $gender->addOption('Miss', '1'); $form->add($gender); $surname = new InputText('surname'); $surname->setLabel('Surname'); $surname->setRule('required'); $form->add($surname); $name = new InputText('name'); $name->setLabel('Name'); $name->setRule('required'); $form->add($name); $email = new InputText('email'); $email->setLabel('E-Mail'); $email->setRule('required'); $form->add($email); $subject = new InputText('subject'); $subject->setLabel('Subject'); $subject->setRule('required'); $form->add($subject); $message = new Textarea('message'); $message->setLabel('Message'); $message->setRule('required'); $form->add($message); $privacy = new InputCheckbox('privacy'); $privacy->setLabel('I accept the privacy policy'); $privacy->setRule('required')->setCustomMessage('You have to accept our privacy policy'); $form->add($privacy); $button = new Button('submit'); $button->setAttribute('value', 'Send'); $form->add($button); if($form->isValid()){ print_r($form->getValues()); // do what you want } // render the form echo $form->render(); This piece of code creates a simple contact form and validates it according to the validation rules set. Inside the isValid() method you can run your code (fe sending an email)
      Highlights:
      30+ validation types Support for UiKit 3 and Bootstrap 5 CSS framework SPAM protection Highly customizable Hookable methods for further customization Multi-language You can download and find really extensive information on how to use at https://github.com/juergenweb/FrontendForms.
      Please report errors or suggestions directly in GitHub.
      Best regards and happy testing 🙂

      Hi All,
      Im working on streamlining my email sending setup for SMTP. I have a page where the user of the website can input the SMTP host, port, connection type email and password etc but the password field has an additional box underneath it for 'Confirming' it as if it were a new password. The placeholder text also says 'New Password' but I want to be able to change that. I just need an input field where they can enter their SMTP password without it being plain text.
      Thanks for your help!

      I have a client who is reporting that in the last couple of days they can no longer login to their site with their normal browser (Chrome). Using another browser or an incognito window works.
      I've tried logging into the site using the same login details in my usual browser (Firefox) and have had no problems.
      The site is a membership site and today other members are reporting the same problem.
      The site is running 3.0.148 and has the session handler DB and login throttle modules installed. It was recently upgraded to 3.x from 2.x. But no changes have been made to the site between the time when they were able to login OK and when the problem started happening.

      Hi Everyone!
      I'd like to set a different label on my Title (PageTitle) field in one particular template.  Is there a way to do so? 
      Thanks.

      Hi, Looking to create form elements on a page–some input with a colection of form inputs and the appropriate labels and variables for that input. I've used ProForms in the past and rolled out my own when creating simply one off forms, but I wonder if anyone has found a good way of allowing form creation on page editing so that clients can adhocly make and edit forms?
      Thanks
