    Since upgrading Contact form 7 to the latest my menu which I want users to have to select an option, no longer requires them too.
    I have [select* menu-634 include_blank "USA" "Canada"
    But they can just choose nothing and this is not what I want. Any idea why the select* is no longer being followed?

    i,ve the same problem. I need to be sure that the client select an option, but the validation skip the dropdown.

    Yes I have the same problem too, and I'm pretty confident that it was working correctly until recently.

    It appears that the demo on http://contactform7.com/checkboxes-radio-buttons-and-menus/ demonstrates the issue - you can submit the form without selecting anything from the required select box.

    I'm facing the same problem... I have correctly set it like this:

    [select* candidato include_blank "option1" "option2" "option3" "option4"]

    But validation ignores it...

    As per the other topic, this appears to produce a validated required select box:

    [select* fieldname "" "option1" "option2" "option3" "option4"]

    Note there is no 'include_blank' and the first option is blank.

    Thanks, nztim, that worked! They should fix the demo code, because it clearly states that we should use include_blank...
