Validation error messages problem (2 posts)

    When nothing is entered in a "required field" nothing happens. The form does not send and no error message shows. When everything is entered I get a message that the message was sent.

    I tried changing to the default theme and deactivating all plugins except for WP No Category Base - still no error message. Is there a conflict with WP No Category Base or what could be the problem?

    CF7 uses Javascript to validate form input. Your testing indicates that you have a Javascript Confilct which is preventing CF7's Javascript from executing.

    Use Firebug or Chrome Dev Tools to examine Javascript conflicts in detail.

    Note: You will need to disable ALL Javascript other than that from CF7 to investigate this problem.

    That means WP No Category Base needs to go as well - at least temporarily (you can bring it back later if it's not the cause).

    See Contact Form 7 Email Issues - there is a link there that covers Javascript Conflicts.
