Plugin after installation Joomla 3.8.0 no longer works when using Security Image

After updating from Joomla 3.7.5 to 3.8.0, the forms with Security Image no longer work. By selection of the correct image, the error message always shows that the wrong image was selected (see attachments).

When using the same form without Security Image, the processing is correct.

For the test, i was using the basic contact form (see attachments).

Note: This is only true if the form is called by means of plugin {chronoforms6} xxxxxx {/ chronoforms6}. When developing under Forms Manager, "preview" and/or "view" the error can not be produced!

Heeeeeeeeelp!

In addition to the previous error message, the use of the form by module does not work either!

Additionally i found that when writing the form data into a database, using the plugin, the entries are written 2 times.

Also the emails are written 2 times and sent!!

Hi Peter,

Any issues occurring under the plugin mode only are usually related to the Joomla caching, you can either turn it off or set the form "Action url" to {url:} which will send the form data to the default form submission page.

Hi Max

Thanks for the answer.

Joomla caching is (was) turned off. Nevertheless,
- emails
- Database entries
ar written two times and the
- Security Image
does not work either.

I have just installed 2 new basic installations of Joomla and the errors can be only "produced" under the joomla version 3.8.0. With the version 3.7.5 there ar no problems.

Joomla version 3.7.5
- Chronoforms 6.0.9
- emails: ok
- database insert: ok
- security images: ok

Joomla version 3.8.0
- Chronoforms 6.0.9
- emails: send two twice
- database insert: insert twice
- security images: does not work (error message: You didn't select the correct image)

Best regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,

Do you have any extra "plugins" installed on the 3.8 ? could you please turn off all system and content plugins before running a new test ?

Hi Max

Both test installations (3.7.5 and 3.8.0) are basic installations without additional software, exception of
- Chronoforms_V6.0.9_Extension.zip
- plg_chronoforms6.zip
- mod_chronofroms6.zip

I did the tests with the exclusion of all system and conten plugins, but the emails and the database entries were still duplicated.

Just noticed that under Joomla 3.8.0 also e-mails created with forms version 5 of Chronoforms are now sent twice.

Best regards,
Peter

Same issue here, but with Chronoforms v4. On all installations: captcha is no longer validated. With J3.7.5 this was no problem, with v3.8 this stopped working.
Could you please help?

Hello,

I could not replicate the issue here on Joomla 3.8, neither using the forms manager link nor using the plugin, please add a debugger action to the end of the "submit" event and post the debug results.

Best regards,
Max

Hi,

This looks like an issue with the latest Joomla update:

So this means it will be fixed with v3.8.1?

Hi Bernhard,

I think so, but we do not have control over this here, we can only update Chronoforms.

Please try to disable the form relative url setting, this may help solve the issue.

Max

Hi Max

After the update of Joomla 3.8.0 to 3.8.1, all my problems described in this error message
- Verification Security Images
- Duplicate creation of emails and DB updates
appear to be solved. Apparently, all errors related to a faulty Joomla update Version 3.8.0.

Thanks for your efforts and best regards
Peter

I have the latest Joomla update (3.8.1) with a RocketTheme template, and yet I still get the same issues:
1. Security Images not functioning.
2. Double email being sent.
How do I resolve that?

Hi renierjvr,

This sounds as if the form is being submitted more than once - possibly a problem with SEF URLs. Does it work if you use the default ChronoForms URL to load the form?
