buttons in mojoportal

Hi all,

I am sorry if this is the wrong forum to post in...

mojoPortal Version 2.3.6.2 MSSQL

Operating System Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2

ASP.NET Info v4.0.30319 Running in Full Trust

I have installed mojoportal and it is working well, still working on last few pages but the issue I have is at the moment I use a 3rd party billing system (WHMCS) that sets up the required hosting and registers domains on my server. The issue I am having is the following:

I have added a html module to http://cmshostingservices.co.uk/mojo/domains.aspx and added the html code for a domain lookup that calls an external php page but when clicking the button it just refreshes the page. I know the application is ASP.NET and when OpenSRS finally release a .NET API I can use that but in the meantime I need to use this. I have checked the source code of the page and the link does show correctly.

<form action="http://cmshosting.co/account/domainchecker.php" method="post">
     <input name="token" type="hidden" value="f48b333161f022d5ccf53259c20f6158a96bfe5f" /> <input name="direct" type="hidden" value="true" /> Domain name: <input name="domain" type="text" /> <select name="ext"><option selected="selected">.co.uk</option><option>.me.uk</option><option>.org.uk</option><option>.com</option><option>.info</option><option>.net</option><option>.biz</option><option>.org</option><option>.co</option><option>.eu</option><option>.me</option><option>.tv</option><option>.mobi</option></select> <input type="submit" value="Go" />&nbsp;<br />
     Buy your domain name in confidence with our low prices and free features. Our domain registration system is highly automated so we register your domain names quickly with no fuss.</form>

There is already a javascript form on the page by default

<script type="text/javascript">
//<![CDATA[
var theForm = document.forms['aspnetForm'];
if (!theForm) {
    theForm = document.aspnetForm;
}
function __doPostBack(eventTarget, eventArgument) {
    if (!theForm.onsubmit || (theForm.onsubmit() != false)) {
        theForm.__EVENTTARGET.value = eventTarget;
        theForm.__EVENTARGUMENT.value = eventArgument;
        theForm.submit();
    }
}
//]]>
</script>

Do I need to disable this to make my form work and if I do how can I disable it just for this one page

Thanks in advance

Re: buttons in mojoportal

I don't know how to fix it, but I know why it happened. ASP.NET does not allow more than one <form> tag on one page. mojoPortal is written in ASP.NET, so it already has a <form> tag, the code snippet you added also has a <form> tag. It is not allowed.

Maybe Joe has a solution for you.

Re: buttons in mojoportal

Hi codingbeaver and thanks for the reply, that was my guess as to why it did not work but as I'm not a developer I am unsure where/how to modify the page to only use the one form tag and then poss work:)

Re: buttons in mojoportal

This article about making a PayPal Buy Now button describes the problem and shows a solution. It requires custom development but it is pretty easy and the article has example code you could modify.
