Multiple wait list entires bug

Found a bug on the wait list. To recreate – open the waitlist window and fill it out. Then click submit. Instead of patiently waiting for the waitlist window to process and close – hit submit multiple times. This will insert multiple entires. Had one person this morning who hit submit 20 times.

Hi there,

Thank you for the report, may I ask, how long is the form submission taking on your site? For me, it’s pretty much instant.

Approx 1 maybe 2 seconds. With all caching turned off the site isn’t really that fast.

Hmm, ok. Thank you.

I’ll create a ticket for us to investigate this further but in the meantime I’ve created a snippet to disable the submit button once clicking on the waitlist form:

You can add that to a custom functions plugin on your site, we have some documentation on creating one here:

That should prevent the above and may well be what we include in the Waitlist plugin to prevent the above.
