I created a very simple page type with a form on it. Extension of Page not form. I saw a tutorial and it looked simple enough to reproduce. I got everything to work in the sense that if I called the entire form IE: "$MyCustomForm" in my templates, the entire form shows up and submits to the database I've told it to, and it works well. Including required fields.
Now, when I loop through the form to get individual fields via $Fields.fieldByName('FirstField') that shows up find as well. I do the same for $Actions and then $Field for actions to get my submit button to show up at the end. I did it this way so I can have find tuned control over what the page itself will look like. And while the template works well, the submit button does not. It doesn't even fire. No error, and in chrome during expect element nothing gets pushed or passed through php either. Its sitting there with class attributes but feels essentially like an empty button.
Any ideas why this could be happening? That calling the entire form straight works perfectly. But calling each field manually/separately causes the submit button to stop working?
Thanks in advance.
