Hi,
we're in trouble since the last update. We're running Joomla 3.8.0 (problem was the same with 3.7.x) with F2C 6.16.0.
We work with several forms on our website. All articles are edited at the frontend.
Everything works fine but one type of form won't behave like it should.
Only the cancel button works. If I click on the save or apply button nothing happens but at the Chrome console I get this error:


Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'value' of null
at F2C_ValDateField (f2c_frmval.js?49f08140b9d46e92c808685da3b95bc9:35)
at Object.Joomla.submitbutton (index.php?option=com_form2content&task=form.display&view=form&layout=edit&id=77&Itemid=652:416)

f2c_frmval.js?49f08140b9d46e92c808685da3b95bc9:35


But there is no date field in this form which could require this validation.

At the backend everything works perfectly...

Any ideas to solve this problem?

Hi Bernd,

To clarify for other readers. This has nothing to do with Joomla upgrade to 3.8.

Now some questions to track down the issue:

  • Does it work in the back-end?
  • Do you use overrides for your submission form. If so switch off and test
  • Do you use required fields, if so can you turn those required on one by one
  • Something appears to be different on this form to te others.... any ideas?

Regards,
Patrick

The complete admin area runs with the protostar template.
No overrides.

Hi Bernd,

The only thing I can think of is a JS conflict that happens just in that form. From the error it seems to have to do with a date value. Do you have a link to the form so I can get Julien our programmer to look at it?

Patrick

Hello Bernd,

Is it possible to send me an Akeeba back-up of this site, plus an exact description on how to reproduce this issue?

You can send the back-up to julien at opensourcedesign dot nl

Thanks!

Julien

Hello Bernd,

Thanks for sending the back-up! That was a quick way for me to find the problem.

You have set the Date Created to show in the front-end, but you have not included it in your custom submission form (team_fussball_form.tpl)

This should have triggered a warning or error in our component, but this did not happen. I'm still looking why...

What you can do in the meantime is the following:

1) Include the data created field in your submission template

OR

2) Switch the display in front-end to 'no'

One of these should make it work again!

best,
Julien

I would like to set the date created not to be shown in the frontend. But if I do so, I get this error code:
Form2Content Fehler : Feld F2C_CREATED ist nicht für die Anzeige im Front-End gesetzt, ist aber im F2C Submission Form Template anwesend.
But F2C_CREATED is not in the template... so where's the bug?

This is the form template:

{php}
function UserIsAdmin($uid = 0) {
$in_admin_group = false;
$user = JFactory::getUser();
$usergroups = $user->groups;
$admin_groups_ids = array(8,11); // 8: Super User, 11: Team Admin
foreach ($admin_groups_ids as $agid)
{
if (in_array($agid,$usergroups)) $in_admin_group = true;
}
return $in_admin_group;
}

Hi Bernd,

So you are using template override. That was my first question ;)
Just to be sure that things work without the override can you test by switching it off temporarily (in Content Type manager setting) and see if the form works. Always good to know before spending possible time looking in the wrong direction.

Regards,
Patrick

Sorry, I didn't knew that you meant this. I thought the question was about language overrides like I asked in my post.
Accepted Answer Pending Moderation
If I switch off the submission form template, the apply and save buttons work fine.

But if I switch it back on again I get the same error, saying that F2C_CREATED is not set for the frontend but it is in the template. But believe me, it's not in the template. It's the same template as posted before.

Even if I use the standard form which is generated by F2C, the error occurs.

I have a workaround but it's not a real solution.
I've included the created field and disabled the visibility.
Now it works but I would really like to know why this error occurs.

Hi Bernd,

Thanks for the updates. Agree, we will look into this!

Hi Bernd,

Yes I can see that there's a bug in the algorithm that detects which template variables you are using.
I will see how I can fix this. For the meantime: I'm glad you found a workaround!

best,
Julien
