Support » Plugin: User Meta Manager » Validation – An invalid form control with name='xxxxx' is not focusable.

  • Resolved FayssalF


    I have set up a custom meta (a drop down list / Select menu) and made it required.

    Everything worked fine but suddenly validation stopped working properly. The submit button became unclickable in both Chrome and Opera.

    When I chech the developer console (F12) I get the following error :

    An invalid form control with name=’xxxxx’ is not focusable.

    I have tried different solutions but it seems that the only one working is to add a novalidate to the register form tag. However, that cannot be considered a solution since I want the select menu to be required and validated.

    I haven’t been able to reproduce this error yet.

    If you view the source code for the form, check to see if the form “id” attribute matches the “form” attribute for the select menu.


    <form name="registerform" id="registerform" action="wp-login.php?action=register" method="post">

    <select name="test_select" class="test-class" required="required" data-test="1" size="1" form="registerform">
    <option value="" selected="selected">Select One</option>
                <option value="finance">Finance</option>
                <option value="sales">Sales</option>
                <option value="management">Management</option>

    I’ve learned this may be a bug in Chrome and Opera that can occur when CSS “display:none” is used on form elements.
