[resolved] No characters are invalid in checkout fields??? (8 posts)

    In my checkout fields I have:
    Personal Info
    Email Address
    First Name
    Last Name
    and agree to: Terms Of Use

    If fields are left blank I get the correct error messages:
    Error: You must agree to the terms of use
    Error: Please enter a valid email address
    Error: Please enter your first name
    Error: Please enter your last name.

    But if I just type the number 1 in each field - the success-page becomes available in(test-mode) & I'm taken to http://www.sandbox.paypal.com in (Paypal test mode). (Surely typing 1 in these fields does not make these fields valid?) I thought at least all email fields in forms etc required the symbol @


  2. Nope that's not normal. It looks like it is a bug for sure.

    I will get it fixed for the next point release.

  3. Seems this only happens for logged-in users who have their email address pre-filled. When purchasing as a guest, the field is validated correctly.

    Email field are now ok thanks; other fields still only need one character / number to be deemed acceptable to take you to PayPal...

  5. What values would you expect to make first / last name valid? Names can vary vastly around the world, so just about any value for first / last name can be considered valid somewhere.

    Yeah I know what you mean - genuine customers will add there appropriate names etc - just trying to cover all bases before launching - cheers!

  7. Yep! Happy to help!
