Form builder

I'm working on setting up form-builder. I've gone through the steps carefully and am to the point of testing my first generic form. Upon submission, the confirmation doesn't come up and the data isn't emailed or written to the server. Is there a way to troubleshoot this?

    I note that error reporting is in the php script for display-form. No error is displayed and the script is not executing. I'm going through the setup directions again to check everything. I note also that in the form data definition, it's not allowing me to input into the form instructions wysiwyg.

    Can you please attach any scripts or files that you're working with? Particularly anything that looks to be the form handling code.

    That functionality is not native to Cascade so I want to make sure we're looking at the same thing.

    I'm following the directions found here:

    The format attached handles the form when it is submitted. I'm not quite sure what else you need to see. I note that the form action comes out as ?submitted=true.

    Is SOAP enabled in your PHP installation?

    Thanks for your reply,
    I have this set in my php.ini:

    ; Enables or disables WSDL caching feature.
    ; Sets the directory name where SOAP extension will put cache files.
    ; (time to live) Sets the number of second while cached file will be used
    ; instead of original one.

    You might need to update the link to your wsdl in the velocity format to include the port by using the following url

    Let me know if you still have issues after this.

    Thanks. I'm finally back to working on this. Your suggestion moved me along a bit. The form now submits and I see the form confirmation text. At at this point now:
    1. No email is sent.
    2. In writing to the Cascade server, the file is created but it does not hold the form data.

    1. I believe that you will need to make sure that mail() is properly setup in your php.ini file.
    2. Can you please attach the format as you have it in your CMS instance? Can you tell me what type of file is being created without results, the excel/xml file or a page? If page, can you attach the DD on the page being used? If excel/xml, can you verify that the additional file,, is where you say it will be in the velocity format?
