5 years 3 months ago #67834 by miradoro

I have mandatory option on for email but i still can click on submit and i receive an empty survey results

Also, i get memory errors like
atal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 233472 bytes) in /vservers/bfmarketingc/htdocs/BF_3076_Survey/qanda.php on line 6777

1) how can i make a mandatory field effective?
2) How to avoid empty surveys to be sent?

There seems to be something seriously wrong with your limesurvey installation, because usually mandatory means mandatory and requests the participant to fill in something.

Your server seems not to have enough memory allocated for Limesurvey.

1. Which Limesurvey version do you use?

2. Can you reproduce the problem with a very simple sample survey?

3. I recommend to avoid capital folder names, some webservrs have problems with this setup. Also check if $rooturl is set accordingly at config.php.
