wavebroadband and opera

Post by DonHill » Mon Mar 23, 2015 8:24 am

Are there any issues with using Opera?

I have a personal website on WaveBroadband. They offer no support. They say to load files with FTP but no connection happens at
FTP://wavecable.com. QNE built in FTP also fails to upload. Filezilla also does not connect.

Through my wavebroadband email there is a way offered to upload one file at a time to the website. http://home.wavecable.com~ldd
This I have done and the website works. Except for forms. I purchased an account with mailmyforms. The QNE form for mailmyforms does not work. I edited the code per mmf directions and get the message that the site did not receive the files.

Can anyone figure this out?

Are there any issues with using Opera?
No, websites should work like in any other browser.

I do not have any experience with 'mailmyforms', but you can add hidden fields in the 'Hidden fields' property of the form.
The 'action' can be set in the 'action' property.
Since you are using an external form processor, make sure you do not enable the built-in form processor.

My conclusion is that wavecable does not support php.

If you use an external form processor then your host does not need to support PHP. In that case the form will be processed by another server.

Built in processor was properly set in all cases. Hidden fields were necessary and properly used. Action property was tried in both QNE and MMf formats. By the way: does it matter where submit is located? QNE is different from MMF. Tried both.
I tried the QNE form wizard and entered the correct info into inspector. Didn't work.
I used mmf instructions - didn't work.
I built my own forms with both instruction sets -didnt work.
When I publish to my desktop the forms appear ok but do not work.
I signed up with google but couldn't register the wavecable website for recaptcha. They do not like the domain.

I am of the opinion that domain format is the problem with all the above.

I think you are mixing up a few things.

When you use an external form processor (like mailmyform) then you should not enable the built-in form processor.
Also recaptcha will not work with an external form processor, because the script has to be on the same server.

Steps for using an third party form processor:
- build your form
- do not enable the built-in form processor
- add required hidden fields (see the documentation of the third party form processor)
- set the action to the URL of the third party form processor

If the form does not work then either your settings are wrong or there is something form with your mailmyform account.

I set all parameters correctly then tried incorrect ones.

I dropped the free web site of wavecable. They designed it in the early 2000's and dropped support long ago. The help desk doesn't even know they offer it. Tried two free sites online. After 120+ hours I did not have a web sit. :evil: Finally tried 000webhost.com and had a working site in 1 hour. QNE PHP worked! :P The pages & instructions at 000webhost are plain and simple and work. 8)
Mailmyforms did not work. The instructions are vague and incomplete. :roll: No support. No refund. :cry:

I set up a google account but recaptcha still wouldn't work. I had to learn by trial and error where to put the scripts in QNE using google examples of code. Google's instructions start out clear but the final steps tell you what to do but not where. It was all good that afternoon.

I can sign in to mailmyforms and it says I am active. But a hidden contact page prompted saying I am not upgraded although I paid for it. They are not responding to PayPal. They make no promises of assistance but when they take the money and don't deliver that is fraud.

I use Mint, so I loaded my site to W8.1 and checked for viruses. Came out good. :D

How is this all related to my Quick 'n Easy Web Builder?
If an external script does not work then that is not the software fault, right?
