Hi there

I have a form that people supply some details and in return are entered into our competition. I need to stop duplicate entries with the same email addresss. I understand this would be possible if the user was registered to the joomla site because then they could be sent to edit their previous entry. Unfortunately i cant force entries to register with the site. Is there a way that the form can validate that that an email address doesn't already exist in the database.

Thanks very much for any help or advice

Hi,

please unzip the file attached and install the form package in BF => Configuration => Package Installer.

After that go to "manage forms" and select the appropriate package from the top select list.

Then you can see a form stub created for this purpose and build your form around it. Please leave all scripts and pieces and the fieldname "email" intact.

Regards,
Markus

Hey Muffinman. am going crazy try to solve what seem like they should be simple issues. Your duplicate email script is fantastic in quick mode and after mucking around a little i am getting the form looking good.

If i could get this duplicate email in classic mode somehow this wouldn't be a problem? But perhaps i am just missing something in quickmode to achieve the following
This has been driving me crazy for over 12 hours now!! I need a check box group that needs to write the individual values of each check box to the database.

For example
(label)do you have?
cat
dog
horse

Group settings
0;cat;yes
0;dog;yes
0;horse;yes

I need the list view to have a column for cat dog & horse. with the value being yes or no(or just blank for no).

When I to do this with seperate check box fields wrapped instead of the checkbox group they all have margins and padding that make them not look like they are part of the same group? Am i missing an easier way to achieve this???? I could probably fix this by creating a new them and editing the CSS but feels like there will be a more intuative way i am missing.
I have been through all the support docs and through the forum with no luck.

Thanks for your time!!

I also posted this checkbox question as a seperate post hopefully can help some one else too sometime

Hope this makes sense
Thanks so much

Hi,

can you support me with a screenshot, please?

Generally it would be possible in ClassicMode, too but then jquery needs to be added as well (only available for quickmode by default). Will be quite work, so if you still need that, please let me know.

Markus
