URGENT! Form not working in Internet Explorer!
Hey All,

My form works great in Firefox and Safari, but doesn't continue (multipage form) in Internet Explorer. Anyone have any ideas why this would be happening? Here is my code:

    $fields = ft_api_init_form_page(2);
    $params = array(
    "submit_button" => "continue",
    "next_page" => "payment.php",
    "form_data" => $_POST,
    "may_update_finalized_submissions" => true,
    "finalize" => true

The page is here:

Any help is very appreciated!

Here is the form code:

<form action="<?=$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']?>" method="post">
<fieldset class="mail_list">
<input name="id" type="hidden" value="<? foreach ($list as $row){if ($row['id']===$url_id) {echo $row['id'];};} if ($url_id==""){echo "Mission Year";}?>" />
<input name="full" type="hidden" value="<? foreach ($list as $row){if ($row['id']===$url_id) {echo $row['full'];};} if ($url_id==""){echo "Mission Year";}?>" />
<input name="fund" type="hidden" value="<? foreach ($list as $row){if ($row['id']===$url_id) {echo $row['fund'];};} if ($url_id==""){echo "Mission Year";}?>" />
<li><label for="donate_to">Donate To</label> <select name="donate_to" id="donate_to" onchange="replaceDoc(value)">

{ return strnatcmp($a['full'], $b['full']); }
# sort alphabetically by name
usort($list, 'compare_lastname');

I looked at your Finish Strong page and am trying to do something very similar.
I was wondering a few things tho.
Who did you use for your payment gateway? Or are you collecting and processing the Credit Cards yourself?
Are you using SSL?

Hey Al,

I have it set up this way:

1. It uses a SSL certificate
2. The first page goes into formtools, only non-sensitive data
3. The second page gets some info passed from the first page and the form takes the sensitive data and goes to a hushmail account (, protected forms), the CC info is processed manually through our bank.

Hope that helps, thanks!
Hey Doug -

Another thing to try is temporarily switch your submit button to a regular (non-image) submit button. I have a vague recollection that some versions of IE won't pass along the submit button name-value pair to the server.

If it DOES work on IE with a regular submit button, just change the line of PHP at the top from this:
PHP Code:
"submit_button" => "continue"
PHP Code:
"submit_button" => "hidden_continue"
and create a hidden field in the form like so:
<input type="hidden" name="hidden_continue" value="1" />

That should work.

- Ben
