[resolved] How to do field validation (3 posts)

    Hi All,

    At the moment when a person submits information but forgets to enter his First Name or Email it goes to another MailChimp page and asks to complete this field (not good user experience).

    How to avoid that and simply highlight the missing field while the person is on the same page?

    How to do field validation with the eNews extended widget?

    It works on this website - http://www.carriedils.com/genesis-enews-extended-mailchimp/3777/

    As for the e-mail field, if the theme is HTML5 (with add_theme_support('html5'); in functions.php, which shouldn't be used unless the CSS is actually setup for html5 use), will automatically validate, like what Brian Gardner has on his site after each post.

    Since browser validation of e-mail fields was introduced in html5, sites with pre-Genesis 2.0 child themes or new ones that aren't html5-ready does not have in-browser validation.

    Is there any way to add the same type of validation for the name fields? I like the balloon that pops up if the email is blank and I'd like the same result for the other required field (first name).

    Form here.
