Pop-up error messages - are they possible?-

  1. Hi

    I'm putting a form together for a client and he's complained that the error message (which appears, as it should, if someone submits the form incorrectly) is buried at the base of the page. I must say i agree with him.

    Is it possible to have a pop-up error message (ideal) or, if not, at least position the error message at the top of the page in bigger text. If these alternatives are possible, how are they done?

  2. Can you post a URL to your form page so we can take a look and offer some specific suggestions?

  3. Hi Kevin

    Thanks for the reply

    Here's the URL

    The form is a row that the client wants fairly low on every page (just above the footers). I appreciate having it nearer the top might solve this problem, but that would detract from the page design.

  4. Any progress on this?

    My client is still waiting for this issue to be fixed, even though the site is now live - see )

    Sorry for the delay in responding, you might want to take a look at using the gform_confirmation_anchor filter which will automatically scroll the page to the form if validation fails, you would add the following to your theme functions.php file

    add_filter("gform_confirmation_anchor", create_function("","return true;"));
