Custom validation, as a plugin?



    I am wondering if there is a way to make the custom validation as a form of plugin instead of add to the theme functions.php?

    I would like to use this type of validation on a couple of websites, some of which are in the process of being updated/redesigned.

    A plugin or add-on type of thing would make the validation much simpler.

    Any help is appreciated

    I second this - even a few basic options (similar to how excel works) would be great

    eg. (on a per field basis)
    numbers only, fixed number of characters, starts with / ends with / contains

    Currently there is no way of adding validation from within the wp interface - is that correct or am I missing something?

  3. @pghirefly, you're correct. All custom validation is done with PHP code in your theme's functions.php. Basic validation is built in for certain fields.
