Hi everyone,
I am new to Silver Stripe and get stuck with contact-us form of tutorial 3.
If I try to use check box with required option checked in form then it works.
But if it is not checked in form then it gives error like

XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Location: http://localhost/mimomax/contact-us/?executeForm=Form
Line Number 2, Column 1:<b>Notice</b>: Undefined index: EditableCheckbox12 in <b>C:\wamp\www\mimomax\cms\code\PageTypes\UserDefinedForm.php</b>; on line <b>216</b><br />

Normally we use check box either it may require or not. It is not compulsory for every user, so how can I solve this problem???????

Also have problem with drop down option, it works well on published site but got error on CMS site like;

Notice: Undefined variable: default in C:\wamp\www\mimomax\sapphire\forms\EditableDropdownOption.php on line 75

Point to notice in both case is that it stores the record in Submissions of the CMS site.

Can you please help me how to solve this problem!!

Both errors appear to be caused by php notices. You can switch notices off by adding error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE); to your _config.php in your mysite directory. The XML error is probably from these notice outputs too so if you turn off notices it should fix the XML error

Ok weird you should have an _config in there as thats were the db details are stored!, are you using the blackcandy default install or the tutorial theme?.

Edit: Bah sean you posted exact same time :P. What he said!
