Apostrophes in names cause name dissappear on form submission, & error on page

    I have noticed that in a working form using user registration module and custom meta, apostrophes cause problems.

    for first name= aatest'23
    for last name= aatest'24

    I get :

    error 1:_______________________________________
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_LNUMBER in /home/ojaorg/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gravityformsuserregistration/userregistration.php(3229) : runtime-created function on line 1

    apostrophe in each name causes 2 errors, if I resubmit with apostrophe in first name and not last name - causes 1 error with user registration instead.

    notification is sometimes blank as a result

  2. Which version of the User Registration add-on are you using? I would like to try to recreate the problem.

    Hi Chris - I am in the middle of a huge user registration for a very large martial arts organization, so I am reluctant to update anything live but the user registration is as updated as I can tell. Also due to the nature of the site and the security and privacy - I cannot post it here - I can share it privately, I forget if there is a private short code for these replies on this site.

    I am available today and tommorrow

    While I am a bit rusty and do not know php, I have had extensive programming background in the past. in other languages some eons ago, and my mind is pretty logical that way.

    Reverse engineering gravity stuff while waiting for the manuals to update, I have uncovered some cool things, and as a result have used it in ways unanticipated by your team. it has also been a hobby, that has become a mission :)

    I have now personally tested hundreds of wordpress plugins and am familiar with many as a result.

    I have chosen gravity for many of it's plusses and want to improve on the areas that need work - as I am invested..

    I do not mind working with you as I see it a benefit or win win win. I know you do not provide support live over phone and I completely understand that - (( but neither do I jk...in this case I am willing to break that rule, give you live access and work with you on the phone...I think I will be using Gravity exclusively if possible, and as such I will be experimenting and developing workarounds - as is my nature. In the long term it would be a benefit to the community and I think I might one day become someone who can moderate - As a personal trait while I will throw out suggestions early on (general advice), I am reluctant to advise anyone on anything until I have put something through 110% of its paces...and then review my experience...I am at about 75% with Gravity, (then my replies become more precise and contain examples). I have done the same for some other major plugins as I am a contributor and a problem solver.

  4. I would not recommend using the beta release of the User Registration Add-on on a live site, as you have done, because you are unable to update. I'm certain there are bugs in the version you are using and we've updated beyond beta1 at this point. My recommendation would be to update to beta 2 when it is available. Otherwise, you will be troubleshooting and fixing issues which have already been fixed by our team.

    Yikes - it was recommended by gravity that I update to that release when I encountered earlier issues on this live site, in compliance with the recommendation I updated.

    are you saying that I cannot update further and I lose the form information?

    import and export form entries would be so useful - when is import going to happen?

    further - I require assistance in this matter regarding update? This is sounding like an extreme problem, and it worries me.

    when is beta available - it sounds like it already is?

    Please elaborate on the above issues clearly as to what is going on and what is the path from here going forward

    You can have a profile edit form. Once you install the beta, you will set-up the registration feeds like normal, but also have options relating to editing details of already logged in or created users.

    I haven't had a chance to play with this yet myself, but I can pass this on to one of our developers if you get stuck when trying it.

    All my best,

  7. I was responding only to your comment "I am reluctant to update anything live". If you can update the User Registration add-on, we have a later beta available which I will happily send to you. There is no issue with the upgrade path. This is not an extreme issue. Updating will not cause you to lose anything. Upgrading to the latest beta will only fix bugs which were present in the earlier release.

    Beta 2 is not yet available, but I have a later revision of beta 1. Email me at chris@rocketgenius.com and I will send the latest to you which you can update to without a problem and without losing anything.

    Chris,
    thanks for the re-affirmation...I am always gun shy of bleeding edge technology and even like to sit a revision back :)

    Dave Peralty is looking at another issue ( http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/radio-button-signature-box-conditional-fails-to-display-android-bug?replies=6#post-184123 ) with the same site I am cc' ing you the same info for the site as him - with a login as a member, if you need admin access let me know.

    after you have looked at it let me know - I will be taking the pages down, updating the plugins etc including the updated beta release of the user regististration, then I will let you know and yo ucan login in again and check it out..

    Please be aware I am under contracted obligation to maintain their privacy. thanks.

    I di not receive the link for user registration beta update - most current?

    Posted 6 years ago on Tuesday March 26, 2013 | Permalink
  10. 1.5beta1 is the latest publicly available release. We can get you a later version of that, before beta 2 is released, but you will have to send an email to one of us. You can email me at chris@rocketgenius.com and I will send you the latest I have.
