Support » Plugin: Link Library » Change email type on submission form?

  • Resolved Ray

    Greets, Yannick!

    I use a Javascript debounce.io script across my website to validate against bad emails on form submissions. It searches for all fields with the attribute type=”email” and name=”email”.

    Since your form uses “ll_email” values/label it won’t trigger Debounce.

    Any chance you can change the type=text for email to type=email in the form so Debounce (and probably other email validators) can verify the email address? That would seem the easiest way to fix without needing to change your string values?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Umm, might wanna belay that… I happened to look up and saw that the email is indeed being validated but the validator icon that normally shows up in the email box is showing way up in the upper left corner of the browser window (on the right of the site logo) for some reason.

    Is this fixable?

    Thanks,
    Ray

    Can you provide the URL where you’ve implemented the user submission form so I can see the problem in action?

    I’ve emailed it to you since the site is in maintenance mode.

    That validator icon has a position: absolute !important CSS style tag right on the element itself, which is what makes it fly to the top-left of the window. Is the debounce script something from a WordPress plugin? If so, I would contact the developer of that plugin if there is a way to style the warning differently.

    It’s a piece of javascript code that’s loaded in the header. I’ll definitely let them know. Fortunately I can bypass that page and not fret about it in the meantime.

    Thanks for checking it out,

    Does it do anything else than check if the format of the e-mail address is valid? Like checking against database of known bad e-mails? Because Link Library already checks if the e-mail format is valid.

    It checks against their database of bad emails, disposable emails, flagged as spam emails, etc. I use Amazon SES so I prefer to be aggressive at defending against bad emails to keep my reputation high. Amazon’s very picky as you may know.

    I initially was using Debounce for mailing list signup forms but it can be used site-wide for any form that collects emails.
