thanks page not appearing—solved - xnau - Jul 6th, 2009

I'm a long-time FormTools user, just now trying the new version.

My forms were submitting, but the thanks page never happened. I just got blank screen—no error, no error in the PHP log.

What I finally found was that the form must be processed by the API before any output because the API is sending a header change. What this means is that all your form processing must happen before your DOCTYPE or anything is output to the browser—what was hanging me up was a space between php tags:
Code:
?>
<?php
like that. (This happened because I was pasting in code form old forms...sloppy)

Maybe this will save someone some time.
