Strange behaviour with K2-Template

Louisleon 12 Nov, 2012

I have implemented a working (multipage) formular in a Joomla 2.5.7 Installation with K2-Template.
This form creates leads in a connected crm-system via a "Custom Server Side Validation" which is included in a "Check Captcha".
After spliting this multipage-form into two forms (form1 calls multipage form2) I have a strange behaviour. On any reason, Joomla always try to create leads in the crm-system with strange content (sometimes with content from the template!). I don't know how this is possible, because the coding shouldn't run if nobody entered the right captcha. It's really miraculous!
Had anybody this behaviour before?

Thanks in advance,

No idea?
I couldn't imagine that code is running without trigger an event!

Hi LouiseLeon,

Sorry, I don't have any useful suggestions from what is posted here. I don't expect that the template is the problem.


PS I recommend that you don't use the On Success events of the Check Captcha - the result is the same if you place the second action after the Check Captcha action. But I don't think that is causing this problem.

Hi Bob,

thanks for your answer!
Indeed, I'm using the on success Event of the capture with a custom server side validation action.
I will try to place the code after the check captcha action.

Another problem exist with a slideshow-template and the chronoform-plugin. I'm sure you know already about this problem. I have read that is possible to use Chronoforms without the plugin with {loadposition...}. Can you please give me a link for more explanations?

Thanks in advance,

Hi LL,

I've never had to use the load position module. There's a post here explaining how another user did it.


I think probably Munich near the Oktoberfest is too crowded for me. We did visit some friends there a few years ago and may get back one day (my step-son was born in the Ludwig-Maximilian Hospital there).

Hi Bob,

your hint not to use captcha success nested with a Custom Server Side Validation seems to solve the problem. I didn't get any activity after this change.
Good to know not to use captcha success for any other action than to show a success message.

The other problem could be fixed, by activating "mootools" in the Template-Administration!

Best regards
