User reg fails when VAT id required
« on: November 01, 2010, 11:39:00 am »
Im setting up a shop and need to have every registerd user to add their vat id (in europe btw)
When i enable the field it works correctly and checks if it is a valid vat id etc but when pressing register button i just get a blank page and no user is created. but as soon as i disable the vat field everything works fine.

Any suggestions to this problem?

I have similar problem with my Joomla 1.5.22/VM 1.1.6 install. I had it working, registration with a required VAT ID. It just worked fine, and one day it stopped. Now the registration form does not work when I require the VAT ID to be filled out. Doing that results in the page coming back with Please make sure the form is complete and valid.
When I set up the form so that VAT ID is not required the form works as expected. However, when people insert a non existing VAT ID, in the still visible VAT ID field the system will reply Please use a valid VAT ID. So yes, it seems all to be working except when I set the VTA ID to be a required field, how can that be?
