[closed] Contact Form 7 - Not W3C Valid (3 posts)

    I use Contact Form 7 on almost every site I make and try to validate all my WP pages as much as I can (just out of habit I guess) via W3C Validator. I always, always have these 3 errors:

    there is no attribute "novalidate"
    …act/#wpcf7-f4-p20-o1" method="post" class="wpcf7-form" novalidate="novalidate">

    there is no attribute "aria-required"
    …rol wpcf7-text wpcf7-validates-as-required" aria-required="true" /></span>

    value of attribute "type" cannot be "email"; must be one of "text", "password", "checkbox", "radio", "submit", "reset", "file", "hidden", "image", "button"
    …ol-wrap your-email"><input type="email" name="your-email" value="" size="30" c…

    Is there really anything I can do to remove these 3 errors and have my contact form validate?

    Hi Howdy_McGee, I can help you for the first and the last validation errors. You have to edit your functions.php (it is located in your active template directory) then you have to add at the end of the file the following line:

    add_filter( 'wpcf7_support_html5', '__return_false' );

    I still need help to fix the other validation error.

    Thanks, I do try to keep my websites as valid as I can but this is always a hindrance.
