Won't validate from within itself - RESOLVED

Recommended Posts

I am trying to validate a form, and from what I can understand, this should validate from within itself.  I have a functions.php with all the functions that it calls for.  I have included all the validate codes, including the submit button at the bottom, as well as the first field from the form (form is quite lengthy)

For the life of me, I can't figure out why it won't validate from within itself, it generates a 404 page not found, as I don't have a seperate page called validation.php

thanks for any help you can give me.


/* validation.php */

require_once ('functions.php');

$valid = TRUE;

if (isset ($_POST['Submit'])) {
    foreach($_POST as $key=>$value) {
      $$key = $value;

    $valid = $user = LettersAndDigits($id);
    $title = Variable($item_title);
    $valid = $valid && $title;
    $category = Variable($item_category);
    $valid = $valid && $category;
    $type = Variable($item_type);
    $valid = $valid && $type;
    $quantity = isDigits($quantity_available);
    $valid = $valid && $quantity;
    $price = Dollars($starting_bid);
    $valid = $valid && $price;
    $increment = DollarsorEmpty($bid_increment);
    $valid = $valid && $increment;
    $reserve = DollarsorEmpty($reserve_price);
    $valid = $valid && $reserve;
    $length = isDigits($duration);
    $valid = $valid && $length;
    $time = isDigits($end_time);
    $valid =$valid && $time;
    $relist = isLetters($auto_relist);
    $valid = $valid && $relist;
    $ct = Variable($city);
    $valid = $valid && $ct;
    $prov = Variable($state);
    $valid = $valid && $prov;
    $cntry = Variable($country);
    $valid = $valid && $cntry;
    $desc = Variable($item_description);
    $valid = $valid && $desc;
    $pay = EmailorEmpty($paypal_id);
    $valid = $valid && $pay;
    $hit = Variable($hit_counter);
    $valid = $valid && $hit;
      if ($valid) {
        echo "Form filled successfully!";
} else {
    $user = $title = $category = $type = $quantity = $price = $increment =
    $reserve = $length =$time = $relist = $ct = $prov = $cntry = $desc = $pay =
    $hit = TRUE;
    $id = $item_title = $item_category = $item_type = $quantity_available =
    $starting_bid = $bid_increment = $reserve_price = $duration = $end_time =
    $auto_relist = $city = $state = $country = $item_description = $paypal_id =
    $hit_counter = '';

At this time, the form is called uploadformcomplete.php

does the form need to be the same name as the action?

well yes, its looking for validation.php and cant find it. If you change the action to uploadformcomplete.php or the file name to validation.php it should work.
