Invalid Field in Customer Checkout
« on: September 02, 2015, 01:14:55 am »
So I have almost finished my shop and went to test the UPS shipment plugin on the front end as a Guest Shopper. Shop address is Running a
PHP Built On: Linux info 3.0 #1337 SMP Tue Jan 01 00:00:00 CEST 2000 all GNU/Linux
PHP Version: 5.5.28
Web Server: Apache
Joomla! Version: Joomla! 3.4.3 Stable [ Ember ] 2-July-2015 16:00 GMT
Joomla! Platform Version: Joomla Platform 13.1.0 Stable [ Curiosity ] 24-Apr-2013 00:00 GMT
VirtueMart 3.0.9

So the Customer goes to check out, begins to fill in information (using no false information) and returns result: Required Field is missing.

Also in the red error box results are:
Invalid field:  E-Mail
Invalid field:  First Name
Invalid field:  Last Name
Invalid field:  Address 1
Invalid field:  Zip / Postal Code

Anyone else with this issue? Also, I tried enabling one page checkout and it refuses to allow checkout as guest!
The cart also returns the same result of Invalid Field when Allow Registration is turned off. If anyone has a solution I'll be glad to try it!

yes - bizarre... fields are filled but fails validation

try with the standard Protostar template to eliminate any template issues

My fault! It was a jquery issue like almost always. I tested on the default template and it worked, installed the old jQuery Easy plugin and all issues vanised. Now if I can get it to load at the same speed again I'll be good to go.
