    The prepopulated form won't load and I'm getting an error

    Asked by beatsahead on January 07, 2016 at 04:18 PM

    My form is https://form.jotformeu.com/beatsahead/new-site-booking-form-page-2 it is the third in a series and  the information from the second form is

    ?&all2={yourSelection}&name[first]={yourName:first}&name[last]={yourName:last}&email={yourEmail}&phoneNumber={yourPhone}&eventType80={yourEvent}&total_no={total_no}&eventDate[month]={eventDate:month}&eventDate[day]={eventDate:day}&eventDate[year]={eventDate:year}

    I can't see what is wrong with the code but now the page wont load and I get the below error.


    Warning: trim() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/content/97/11197497/html/dev1/wp-includes/query.php on line 1640

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/97/11197497/html/dev1/wp-includes/query.php:1640) in/home/content/97/11197497/html/dev1/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 1228

    It's so frustrating, any help would be appreciated.

    the field 'name' must have been linked to something within the theme, changed it to your_name and working perfectly.
