Small code error

    Asked on March 03, 2014 at 01:10 PM


    I am using a form with PayPal.

    I copied the code into my webpage and noticed the following where I have my radio option buttons.

    Where the &nbsp is placed it is missing the ; after &nbsp, on line 370, see below. 

    <span class="form-product-item hover-product-item"><input class="form-radio validate[required]" type="radio" id="input_12_1003" name="q12_input12[][id]" value="1003" />

                <label for="input_12_1003">

                  Address Change<span class="form-product-details"><b>

                  <span class='freeCurr' style='display:none;'>&nbsp$</span>

                  <span id="input_12_1003_price">&nbspFree</span>

                  <span class='freeCurr' style='display:none;'>&nbspCAD</span>

    I went back and had a look at another form and found the same thing there.
    The name of the forms in question are:
    Dog ID Card Registration Form  and its French equivlent,
    Fomulaire d'enregistrement - carte d'identite du chien
    Because you use style='display:none;' the code will not appear. Perhaps you have a purpose for doing this. Please explain.
    Thank you,

    Thats quite odd.

    The the wrong syntax would render the code broken.

    The code seems to have defaulted to HTML entities when the source code was copied into your website - here's how it should look:

    Go ahead and change it to look as above illustration (click to enlarge)

    about the 'display:none;', the code is applied to a the "freecurr" span class when the item on sale has no value - such that the price is displayed as free, rather than #CAD

    Does that clarify things? Please let us know.

    Well it may have rendered it broken if I had not fixed it before I posted it. You should know this happens each and every time. You may want to look into it.

    Thanks for the feedback Bob,

    We will definately look into it.

    Clarify something for us so that we can attempt to reproduce the problem:

    Do you use any tools to edit your site - or do you use a text editing tool over FTP?

    Please let us know.

    Hi Titus,

    First I select the embed form wizard. I then select Dreamweaver and copy the code displayed in the window into Dreamweaver and edit the code to suite my needs. I also use Expression Web and do exactly the same thing. The error appears for both editors. I noticed it some months back and let it go. When it apperared again I decided to let you know.

    I hope this information helps.

    Had the same problem with none breaking spaces after copying the source code. About half of the "&nbsp;" missed the semicolon on the end. Solved it by simply adding ; to every &nbsp but that's quite troublesome to do every time I need to change something on the form.

    Just wanted to let you know the problem still exists, found the thread searching for a bug.
