Form Validation Targeting

  1. Hi there: Not sure If the title accurately describes my challenge but let me elaborate a little. When a user enters a submission and did not enter all 'required' data the form warns you in red. The problem I am experiencing on all forms I create is users do not see the warnings if the form is not at the top of a webpage.

    Is there a way to target a form so when 'required' info warnings appear a user sees them?

    Thanks in advance!

    Can you link to your form so we can see what you mean? When a form is submitted, it should scroll to the form.

  3. Hi David: There is one here http://www.bestwesternpembroke.com/fitness/welcome-meghan/

    If you dummy in info and leave something out [like email] you'll hopefully see what I mean after you click submit.

    Thanks a bunch,

    Can you add ajax=true to your shortcode for that form and test it out and see if that works? Also, I live in Georgetown, Ontario... not too far from you ;)

  5. That worked like a charm, you du man David!

    It's amazing how small the world is. I moved up to Orillia about 3 years ago after living in Brampton for 32 years. In my late teens/ early 20's I spent most of my time in Georgetown building quick street cars. I think it was in a unit on Mountainview.

    So Cool :-)
