Can you provide some more information of what you currently have? Where and what is your custom form? Is it in a plugin, rendered in a macro or what? Is it then trying to create a space?

this is my velocity file





<title>publishing a space</title>

<meta name="decorator" content="atl.admin" />




<form name="myForm" action="com/atlassian/plugins/vanderlande/publishspace/myaction.action" method="GET">

$action.inputText: <input type="text" name="myInput">

<div class="field-group">

<label for="name">Name</label>

<input id="spacename" type="text" name="name" >


<div class="field-group">

<input type="submit" value="ok" class="text">


<div class="field-group">

<input type="submit" value="cancel" class="button">





this is my ijs file



<font><font><font></font>function<font>() {</font></font></font>

var baseUrl = AJS.$("meta[name='application-base-url']").attr("content"<font>);</font>

function<font> populateForm() {</font>



url: baseUrl +





<font></font>function<font>() {</font><font></font>



} });

url: baseUrl +







<font></font>'{ "name": "' + AJS.$("#name").attr("value")+')'<font>,</font><font></font>
