Visual Form Builder – Custom Validation Messages


Customize the default jQuery validation messages for all Visual Form Builder or Visual Form Builder Pro forms.

Change messages like “This field is required.” and “Please enter a valid email address.” to any text you want. This is a great plugin for those international users who would like to translate these messages to their own language.

If you require customizations on a per form basis, you will need to customize the validation method yourself. Please follow this tutorial for tips.

What are the {0} and {1} placeholders?

These are special keys within certain validation messages that will display a number. When indicated, you should ensure your message includes the placeholders.
