Form broken once switching to perch

Hi, I'm pretty new to perch so please bare with me.

I set up a pretty lengthy contact form which allows users to select from a lot of options in the form of checkboxes and radio buttons. The labels styling indicate if a checkbox or radio button is checked, I do this using some JS when it detects a change to the related input and then adds or removes a class from it's parent which is the label.

It was all working just fine, but since creating a perch template from it, I've had issues. Any help would be greatly apprechiated.

  1. Perch is prefixing my radio buttons ID's with the number 0 which I got around by just removing the labels 'for' attribute so that it doesn't matter.
  2. Checking one of the checkboxes from lower down the form automatically selects the last radio button in the 2 radio button sets above.
  3. Checking anything automatically unckecks a set of 4 checkboxes which are turned on by default and are not meant to be able to be changed.
  4. Clicking labels gives the appearance that a checkbox is checked as my JS function fires on the checkbox change and adds or removes a class but the code doesn't actually change to checked in the html.
  5. I'm using custom attributes which JS uses to tally up a total price based on options selected, these are all removed by perch.

I'm confused why so many things have went wrong once I converted my form into a perch template.

Apologies but this is very long. Any help would be greatly apprechaited.

Your custom attributes like price="595" aren't passed through from the template to the HTML tag, because they're not defined by the HTML specification. The way to add custom attributes would be to use the data- prefix, so price="595" would become data-price="595".

Hi. I hope you can help me, I'm programming a website and inside it I'm going to incorporate a webcam chat for users around the world, similar to this page http://www.webcam-porno.es/chat-porno/ and a contact form and I'm looking for a good script. I don't know if you guys can recommend one that's good and not flawed. The one I'm using on another website is giving me a little trouble. I appreciate your help. Greetings
