Support is currently limited. See our help desk hours.

This help desk is no longer actively support. We have switched to a ticketing system to more smoothly manage support, and free up development time. Your newly created tickets won't be available here. You will instead have an email history of your new tickets.

We are working on moving everything current and helpful from public tickets into the docs. This will be a long process and in the meantime, public tickets will remain searchable.

Your private tickets will remain available to you indefinitely. See your old tickets.

Validation query by a newbie...


This Ticket is public


I am a new user. I would need your help in doing this. For example if I have two text fields for example with ids 10 and 11. If the form's user enters values in these fields, I would like to make sure that the values entered in fields 10 and 11 should add up to 100. The total is shown in a read only field with id 12.. If the value of the field 12 is not 100, I would like an error to pop us..This is the kind of validation I would like help with.. This error should ask the user to correct the entries made if field 10 and field 11.

You can use the example here to do this:

Add the code to your theme functions.php or a new plugin. You will need to make some changes to the line that contains in_array. Replace that line with something like: if ($posted_value < 100).

Thank you.. I had tried this but it was not working previously.. But now works.. I think I put a space somewhere.. Thank you for the prompt help.. Much appreciated..
