Description of problem

Hello,

I have a form setup on an HTML page that was working a few days ago and is no longer working. I was able to enter information, click send as a guest, then login and see my private message. A few days ago my site appeared as "404 not found" so I gave it a day to start working and now my form no longer works in any browser. My pages now have advertisements on them as well but that's probably irrelevant.

Monstrosity.forumotion.com

I have the follow setting:
General->Forum->Security->Unauthorize unofficial forms to post message and private messages on the forum: "No".

This worked a few days ago but not any more.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @TheConqueror#1330,

When you first create a forum, it will be ad free for a little while, but after a few more days the adverts will be enabled. You can disable adverts via credits management.

As for being unable to connect ( topic ), we had some temporary downtime with various forums on a specific server which gave a 404 error. The problem should be resolved now. However, if you still encounter the problem, I recommend clearing your browser cache.

As for the form not working, I'm not sure. The HTML looks corrects, so it's not that, and you disabled the security option too. Have you tried sending the message while logged in ? ( not logged out and having to logged in )

The process works when i am logged into my account, therefore only guest messages do not reach my inbox.  Allowing non-members to reply is the basis for this form.

Hello,

How was the form created? Was it written by you by hand, or made using a generator?

Ange had posted the following code to a previous topic and I made a few changes to it(mainly the username)

<form action="/privmsg" method="post" name="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  <label for="pm-title">Subject : </label>
  <input id="pm-title" type="text" name="subject"/> <!-- The subject is required, much like any input you can assign a default value with the value attribute ( value="my title" ) -->
   
  <label for="pm-msg">Message : </label>
  <textarea id="pm-msg" name="message"></textarea> <!-- You can insert automatic values by typing between the textarea tag -->
 
  <div style="text-align:center;">
    <input type="hidden" name="username[]" value="Ange Tuteur"/> <!-- the value contains the name of the member this PM will be sent to -->
    <input type="submit" name="post" value="send"/> <!-- clicking this sends the message -->
  </div>
</form>

You might want to use this form for guests :

The form I gave you was meant for members, because only members can send PMs via /privmsg.
