Fields Disappearing Bug Fixed in Custom Contact Forms 4.0.9.5

January 14, 2011 by Taylor Lovett

Since the inception of Custom Contact Forms there has been a very strange bug that has bunch of people. After detaching fields in a certain order, fields would start to randomly disappear and blank spaces would pop up in the attachment dropdown. This was an error in logic. If two fields were attached to a form one with ID 1 and the other with 11, the fields would be stored in the database accordingly: 1,11, . Detaching the first field would remove instances of 1, from that string, but there are two instances of 1, in that string, some the resulting string would be 1 which would throw everything off from then on. This has been fixed by using serialization to store attached fields and field options. Also the Javascript Conflict bug has been fixed. If you are still experiencing this bug, simply disable jQuery on the frontend in “General Settings”.

Custom Contact Forms 4.1.0 is going to be released in the next week. It will have many new features such as a fixed field for states and countries as well as a dashboard widget for saved form submissions. We are in dire need of beta testers.
