Hi, I've attempted to contact the Chronoforms team on a few occasions over the last couple of weeks and have posted to the forum but haven't had any response and checking through some of the recent topics there doesn't appear to have been any support for a few weeks? Chronoforms has always been my preferred extension however if it's no longer supported I'm wondering if I should start to look for an alternative?

Hi anteud3000,
Max - the owner and developer - appears to have been dealing with some difficult issues for the last month or so (nothing to do with ChronoForms as far as I know). He has posted here occasionally and replied to some emails. I have no new information though.
I have limited experience with CFv6 and next to none with CFv7 but will try to respond where I can.

Hi GreyHead,
Are you able to help me with a problem I'm having with CFv5
I've had to add an extra element to a form but when I try to add it to the database using creat form nothing happens. I can manualy create the new column in the database but it doen't add the data when i fill out the form. Any suggestions?

Hi Chris,
Please try clearing the ChronoForms cache after making changes to a database table. CF caches the table structure for up to 24 hours so won't immediately pick up on changes.

Thanks. I should have remembered that but it's been a while since I had a similar problem.

Hi Bob,
I have a Javascript element in my form with the intention of changing an entry dependent on another element but It doesn't work for some reason.
Are you able to say what I'm doing wrong? The script is:
<?php
JHtml::_('jquery.framework');
?>

var j = jQuery.noConflict();
j(document).ready(function(jQ)
{
jQ('#branch').click(pdf);
jQ('#essentials').click(pdf);
function pdf()
{
var ess, br, pdf;
br = '';
ess = 0;
pdf = ''; //pdf is either "PAPER" or "PDF" with "PAPER" set as the default
br = jQ('#branch').find(":selected").text();
if((br == 'VIC/TAS') || (br == 'SA'))
{
ess = jQ('input[name=essentials]:checked').val();
if(ess == '0'){pdf = 'PDF';}
jQ('#pdf').val(pdf);
}
}
});

Hi Chris,
Have you checked the page with your browser Web Developer tools? They should give you at least a hint where the problem lies.

Hi Bob,
Yes it all appears to work correctly except the pdf value (which changes as hoped) doesn't get placed into the pdf field in the database. I've tried changing to double inverted commas but I don't think that matters anyway. Would it matter that I have another Javascript element that does a similar thing (correctly) with another set of fields?

Why bother, why not just use PHP or a switch in CF to determine the value you want?

I have two groups of subscribers, each of whom have different options of subscription cost but have a common choice of paper or pdf journal mail-outs. In one case the cost of subscription is dependent on the choice of mail-out and in the other it isn't so there's no simple way to arrange the form to cover the different permutations that produces without introducing confusion.
