Submit button not working in Internet Explorer
#1
Hi
My form submit button works nicely in Firefox, but in Internet Explorer doesn't submit or process the form. Can anyone help me out?

Here is my code
Code:
require_once(...'/.../global/api/api.php');
$fields = ft_api_init_form_page(1);
$params = array(
  "submit_button" => "submit",
  "next_page" => "/congratulations.php",
  "form_data" => $_POST,
  "finalize" => true
    );
ft_api_process_form($params);

Here is the submit button code:
Code:
<li class="buttons">

<input type="hidden" name="form_id" value="222015" />
                
<input id="saveForm" class="button_text" type="submit" name="submit" value="submit" />

</li>

Any help is very appreciated!

Hi Don,

This generally means there's a javascript error on the page that's preventing the form from submitting. IE's really bad at that. To confirm this is the problem, try disabling JS on the page, refreshing the browser and resubmitting the form.

You could try "enabling notifications for script errors" buried somewhere within IE's settings, but they're not awfully helpful.

If you like, post your form here and I could take a quick look over to see if I can spot any JS problems.

All the best -

Ben

I had this problem with IE9 and IE6. I would click on the 'Submit' button and nothing would happen.

In both cases there was no JS error since I had already enabled the "bother me when IE finds a JS problem" option in the advanced settings. It turns out that the problem was that I had a nested <form> element. IE doesn't like that. The 'Submit' button worked fine in Chrome (and maybe others).
