When making a donation, the following message occurs on a Donation form part with Tributes enabled:
Please select a tribute type from the drop-down list
I was contacted by a donor having trouble with a donation form. However, the donor is not trying to make a donation with a tribute. Why does the donation form require a tribute when no memorial / honor / Tribute gift is being made?
This is due to the behavior of a web browser's auto-complete or auto-fill settings feature. That feature fills in the donor's name to the Tribute name fields, but it does not select the Tribute Type field.
(Tip: Consider a separate page and donation form for Tributes. This will let you customize the page, form, and form email acknowledgement just for these gifts. Don't forget to add a link to your main giving page/form to the Tribute gifts page.)
