Did Formidableforms change permissions for cascading fields to force purchase for an upgrade? I notice they advertise that feature for plus. Is it now something that causes older versions to fail?

Locations now only cascades one field.  I did a clean install going all the back to 5.5.7 with lite and pro but could only find 2.03 for the locations plugin.  Only those three plugins are installed.  Cascading fields fail when a third field is used. Does anyone know where I can find an earlier version of locations to see if that is the problem? test1.piratedivebar.com/wp-admin     testing /testing#1    test1.piratedivebar.com/test Is this a deliberate snafu to force purchase of the newer version like it was when they released with views?

 

I took off the watch for country and it worked for three fields temporarily for some reason.  It now fails again.

Alan, I just tested your forms at test1.piratedivebar.com/test. Everything is working as expected. There's nothing broken. All three populated correctly and submitted without error.

Have you cleared all browser and server caches? Since the problem has only been reported by you and my tests show your site is working fine, it sounds like something is going wrong in your local environment.

Thanks for looking. It still fails for me. Your form returned Country United States
State North Carolina but not a city in the email I got.

The front end seems to work fine, but the city field wasn’t added to the database? Did you examine the entry’s metadata with PHPMyAdmin? If you check the database, it may help isolate the issue.

That is way out of my pay grade, just like steaks were out of my paramedic pay grade! I am going to put the country field on view just for administrator and put the default to United States to see if that will work.

Coincidence. I was a MICP in NJ.

I’m off this weekend. I’ll touch base with you on Monday.

Thanks! I was a paid killer in Afghanistan. They heard how many people I was killing every day as a paramedic and wanted me to kill a few over there.
