FreeForm 3.1.4 ExpressionEngine 2.5.5 Build 20121220

Hi There,

When submitting my form, it takes you to the root domain (www.domain.com) and shows a white/blank page. It is not adding the entry to the database either or at least it isn’t showing in the Entries Tab.

I have tried with no .htaccess file Communicate tab works.

It happens on another form on the same site as well.

Any ideas? See my template code below:

           collection="Contact Form"
           notify="[email protected]" 

        <p class="form-element">
            <label>Name: </label>
            <input type="text" name="name" class="txtbox" />

        <p class="form-element">
            <label>Email: </label>
            <input type="text" name="email" class="txtbox" />

        <p class="form-element">
            <label>How did you hear about us?</label>
            <select name="how_hear" />
                <option value="Please Select">Please Select</option>
                <option value="Word of mouth">Word of mouth</option>
                <option value="Search engine">Search engine</option>
                <option value="Online school listing">Online school listing</option>
                <option value="Facebook">Facebook</option>
                <option value="Twitter">Twitter</option>
                <option value="Press">Press</option>
                <option value="Banners">Banners</option>
                <option value="School minibus">School minibus</option>
                <option value="Toddler class">Toddler class</option>
                <option value="Other">Other</option>

        <p class="form-element">
            <label>If other, please specify: </label>
            <input type="text" name="other" class="txtbox" />

        <p class="form-element">
            <label>Questions or Comments:</label>
            <textarea name="question"></textarea>

        <p><input type="submit" id="submit" name="submit" value="Submit" /></p>


Many thanks

  • Have you enabled php error reporting to screen? I would guess that there is a mysql/php error but your error reporting is turned down too low. Commented Feb 27, 2013 at 14:41

This was resolved in the Solspace forums here: http://www.solspace.com/forums/viewthread/15814/

Basically, once debugging was enabled the blank page displays this message:

A Database Error Occurred

Error Number: 1054 Unknown column ‘ip_address’ in ‘where clause’

SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM exp_security_hashes WHERE hash=‘181350a948fdb9c1b7e2c0646bebf75b7c7c5ea1’ AND ip_address = ‘’ AND date > UNIX_TIMESTAMP()-7200

Filename: third_party/freeform/mod.freeform.php

Line Number: 1106

This is an issue with EE 2.5.4+ removing the ip_address column from the exp_security_hashes table.

Upgrading to Freeform 3.1.5 or Freeform 4, which have this fixed, should resolve the issue.
