Form validation custom link


    When a user selects submit without filling in all of the proper fields, they are immediately taken to the top of the page. For some users, depending on their browser type, zoom level, etc., they are not seeing the validation error message and are assuming the submission went through. This is a concern because they think they're completing their registration and never seen the form validation error message.

    Can I control where that form validation links? For example, could I add an html block with an anchor tag at the top of the form and have it link that instead of the top of the page?

  2. Please enable AJAX for this form and see if the form reloads for you in the correct location after a validation error. You can enable AJAX when you embed the form via shortcode in the post editor. It's one of the checkboxes, or you can add this to your existing shortcode.
