[Plugin: Contact Form 7] Suggestion for form validation errors

  • I love this plugin! I have one small suggestion, if you’re interested. I don’t know if you’ve considered this already, but I wanted to change the border of my fields to a different color if they didn’t validate correctly. All I did was add the following line to scripts.js at line 130:

    into.addClass('missing-required');

    So it looks like this now:

    var into = $(this);
    into.addClass('missing-required');
    into.append('<span class="wpcf7-not-valid-tip">' + message + '</span>');

    And then I just added some simple CSS like this to my theme’s stylesheet:

    span.missing-required input, span.missing-required textarea{
    	border: 1px solid red !important;
    }

    It’s a small usability improvement, but I think it helps.

  • Thanks for the tip, this was exactly what I was looking for!

    Because I don’t like hacking core plugin files I do hope this functionality will be incorporated in a future version of the plugin.

    Seriously, I could KISS you!!! I have been looking for exactly this thing!

    i could too kiss you mate … really! this is what i wanted .. btw i had to delet the line below the line you added

    from this
    var into = $(this);
    into.addClass(‘missing-required’);
    into.append(‘<span class=”wpcf7-not-valid-tip”>’ + message + ‘</span>’);

    into this
    var into = $(this);
    into.addClass(‘missing-required’);

    so i get only the red markup on the cells and not the msg!

    any thoughts on how to fade the effect out like the plugin does?
