Alert messages even when no form is sent

When I put an article in the cart and then go to the OPC site every thing is okay. But when I go to another menu before filling out the ship to and bill to form and then come back to the OPC site I get warning alerts like "Missing value for E-Mail", "Missing value for First Name" and so on though I have not yet filled in any form.

It happens also when I refresh the page.

Is there any solution?


Joomla 4.2.5
OPC 2.0.431

hello Patrik, on OPC pages these VM core generated messages are supressed by default, unless "error_redirect=X" is found within the URL.

i would need to learn on how to reproduce this issue exactly as i don't see this behavior on my clients or my demo sites. (with VM3.2 to VM4.0.8 )

it is possible that some of your shopper field got a default value which is not recognized by OPC or VM and thus it things that the validation shoudl be run on the cart address contents.

one way i can reproduce this is:
- i fill email address within checkout form (which is then stored via ajax as due to duplicate emails checks)
- i navigate to other page
- i return to the cart and i see "missing value for ... "

i will try to supress these within checkout completely when error_redirect is not set.

best regards, stan
