  • Profile Image
    Asked on April 04, 2014 at 06:40 AM



    I have succesfully msanaged to retriev $_POST data from a the map address locator Widget ( A powerful widget that is by the way) - When I run the widget outside my joomla component everything is  100%  fine - tha challenge is running it a joomla component form -- when I run in joomla component the [q1_clickTo] does not return any data


    other input fiedls in the the form do return data - here is a var_dump($_POST) data


    Array ( [custom_field_10] => [field_access_10] => 0 [custom_field_12] => Geo-location Based [field_access_12] => 0 [formID] => 40923773875567 [q1_clickTo] => [project_title] => nanzo ke [id_category] => Array ( [0] => 9 ) [start_date] => 2014-04-04 09:42:16 [expires] => 365 [project_type] => COM_JBLANCE_FIXED [budgetrange_fixed] => 10-30 [budgetrange_hourly] => 8-15 [project_duration] => 1 [commitment] => Array ( [period] => 5 [interval] => COM_JBLANCE_DAY


    Take note that after [q1_clickTo] => there is nothing


    take note that outside joomla component I get


    array(3) { ["formID"]=> string(14) "40923773875567" ["q1_clickTo"]=> string(130) "

    Country: SOUTH AFRICA

    Province: KwaZulu-Natal Latitude: -29.8508333 Longitude: 30.993055599999934

    " ["website"]=> string(0) "" } SOUTH AFRICA KwaZulu-Natal -29.8508333 30.993055599999934


    ///////////////////////// Here is the weidget html embedded on the componetn page //////////

    take note also that I have lloaded the jotform javascripts the right way and checked they are working

    the widget HTML


           <input type="hidden" name="formID" value="40923773875567" />
      <div class="form-all">
        <ul class="form-section">
          <li class="form-line" id="id_1">
            <label class="form-label-top" id="label_1" for="input_1"> Address Map Locator </label>
            <div id="cid_1" class="form-input-wide">
              <div style="width:100%; text-align:Left;">
                <iframe onload="widgetFrameLoaded(1)" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" class="custom-field-frame" id="customFieldFrame_1" src="" style="border:none;width:610px; height: 560px">
                  <input id="input_1" class="form-hidden form-widget" type="hidden" name="q1_clickTo" value="">
      document.getElementById("customFieldFrame_1").src = "" + encodeURIComponent(window.location.protocol + "//" +;
    }, 5);
    var _JCFClientID = 1

    Can you please share the site URL so we can further investigate. It seems that you have embedded the form using form source if im not mistaken or I might be wrong. We'd like to check the site if there's anything that could cause this not to work.

    Have you tried re-embedding your form? If you are using a form source have you tried grabbing a fresh copy of the source code?
