#3935 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Members directory does not generate correct HTML (form inside form)

Reported by: rogercoathup's profile rogercoathup Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.5.3
Component: Templates Keywords: needs-patch
Cc: rcain@…


The search form nested inside the form for the members directory is not valid XHTML / HTML5 (forms can't be nested in forms).

As a result browsers terminate the members directory form after the search form, and not at the bottom of the members directory (as intended).

To fix: the search form (generated by bp_directory_members_search_form() function) should be moved outside of the form#members-directory-form

Note though: this introduces additional problems that should be fixed - i.e. the search of members works, but the search is also picked up by WP and an additional archive search performed.

please ignore last paragraph about archive search - that's not related to this problem

  • Component changed from Core to Theme

Bit worried about backpat if we move this.

  • Milestone changed from 1.6 to Future Release

Agree this is bad form, but we're stuck with it for now. Moving to Future Release until we can decouple these forms.

Hi, did this ever get fixed please?
Is causing me a few headaches with base bp functionality + bad plugin behaviour around this point in code.
Am using wp 3.4.2 + bp 1.6.1.
