Error, form does not exist.

Please help with the following 2 problems?
1. I have created a ChronoForm with 3 input values. (Just to test first)
I finish the form in the admin and create a menu item to it - but in the front end, when I click on the menu item, it says: Error, form does not exist. I did refer to the form's alias in the menus/Edit item/Option tab.

2. I've added the following lines in my php.ini file: max_input_vars = 9000 as well as the htacces file: php_value max_input_vars 9000, but the admin panel for chronoforms still says: !Max vars: 1000.

Hi Heste,

1. Is the form Published in the Forms Manager listing?

2. There are several places where you can change the PHP settings in current versions. Please look in Site Admin > System Info > PHP Info to see which ,ini files are in use and what the current setting are.

Thanks GreyHead
1. The form is published in the Forms Manager. Still shows 'Error, form does not exist." See attached file with setting for form.
2. I think I found the correct php.ini file, but do not have access to that, will ask the hosting company administrator to set for me.

I would also like to mention - the form was publish in my test environment and worked 100%. But when moved to the new hosting - I ran into this error. So I recreated the form from scratch - published it, and still the same error.

Hi Heste,

Please double check that you have the 'alias' in the Menu Options and not the form title. I can't think what else would cause this problem.

Hi Heste,

The form works when you click the "open" link in the forms manager ?

You have the latest update installed ?

The web server process must be restarted after changing the php.ini

Thanks Max. The sys admin at the hosting company applied the changes to the php file, making it possible to have larger forms.
Your comment: The form works when you click the "open" link in the forms manager ?, gave me an idea. I open the form from the forms manager, and use that url to add a menu item - then it works.
