HOW-TO #2: Problems with caching? - CacheControl

 

A lot of websites are using caching. What exactly is caching? One definition says that caching (pronounced “cashing”) is the process of storing data in a cache. A cache is a temporary storage area. For example, the files you automatically request by looking at a Web page are stored on your hard disk in a cache subdirectory under the directory for your browser.

It's an excellent way to speed up your website, but it has some drawbacks. The way caching works is that it creates a sort of a screenshot of your webpage and serves that to the user. That means that once your caching plugin caches your webpage containing a Breezing Form, it won't have any functionality. It will only have the appearance of a normally functioning form, but it won't actually be functional.

So, besides the usual disable the caching solution, there is an alternative. CacheControl is a powerful plugin that disables caching for specific parameters. Let's get started.

HOW-TO #1: Debugging your forms - E-MAIL

 

 HOW TO DEBUG YOUR FORMS

You created a new form, added all the elements, set all the validations, added some scripts and published the form to a menu item. With pride, you open the newly created page, fill out the fields to test it, press that Submit button and suddenly, nothing happens. What's wrong, you might ask yourself. Well, to be honest, there can be a number of things that went wrong. A lot of times, the problem is a simple typo or an opened tag without its closing tag or the wrong name of a field. All those issues are easily detectable and fixable if you know where and how to look. In this series, we'll try to teach you how to do exactly that and you'll get some insight in how we try to debug your forms when you report an issue.

arrow What's Actually New? 

Since 2008, Crosstec is - and keeps - providing great extensions and support, mostly for Joomla!

However, with a now way larger team that already achieved a lot than in the past, we are in the process of releasing new projects, discovering new technologies and developing new products.

Our first new project that is released with immediate effect is Wptec.org, basically mirroring with what we are sucessful at Crosstec, but tailored for the needs of WordPress users.

Upcoming Changes To Support!

Hi!

Due to a variety of new products (announcements coming soon), we had to find a viable solution for managing our support system as we will face an increase in support requests.

We are now in the process of greatly improving our efficiency so we can continue with our goal of providing you with the best support we can offer.

We are moving the customer support from our forums to a completely new ticketing system.

This change will take place on 04.06.2018.

The free forums are NOT affected by this change. All previous posts from the customer forums will be moved to the free forums, so nothing gets lost.

Prior to disabling the customer forums there will be an announcement at crosstec.org, as well as newsletters, with detailed description on how to submit your future support requests.

All users that have purchased a subscription with crosstec.org will have access  to a new page where they can submit their support request. This means that all further customer support will be done via email through our ticket system.

As mentioned above, free user support will continue to exist in our forums.

Regards,
Crosstec Team
