Ticket #15546 (closed: wontfix)
sendmessage.php fails ungracefully on missing fields
|Reported by:||gene_wood||Owned by:||ctsai|
The Send Message facility which you can find at this URL :
reacts poorly to missing fields. If you type in a message and forget to enter a subject in the subject field, the page responds with :
There was an error processing your request ... Error - Missing Params ERROR - Missing Required Parameters.
Because of the fact that the page the form submits to (sendmessage.php) is the same as the page that the form came from (sendmessage.php), when a user clicks the back button in their browser, their message has been lost. This is very frustrating.
Please either change the form submission destination to a different page so that when clicking back the content filled into the fields is retained
remove the check and allow messages to have a blank subject field
