ExpressionEngine is the bees knees. You do, however, run into the occasional hiccup. This post is about such a hiccup! (when using ExpressionEngine 2.8.1, though other versions do have the same problem)
When building a simple form contact form that submits through POST, I encountered the following error message:
“This form has expired. Please refresh and try again.”
For fun, let’s say this mockup code is what I was using:
<form method="post" id="theform">
<input type="text" name="name" size="60">
<input type="text" name="email" size="60">
<textarea name="message" class="message"></textarea>
<input type="submit" value="Send" class="button" >
Yep, a simple form. So here are some simple solutions to this problem.
Solution 1) Change “post” to “get”.
<form method="get" id="theform">
This isn’t a preferable option at all, but it’s a fast solution.
Solution 2) Add the following line to your config file.
$config['disable_csrf_protection'] = "y";
This solution works well if you don’t care about the csrf protection.
Hope it helps!
