    Customize Error Message :: "do not allow previously entered values"

    Asked by rebirthdesign on February 27, 2014 at 01:26 AM

    Hi there, 

    So I have a preference turned out so that users cannot submit using the same email address.

    If a user does, this is the auto-generated pop-up error message.


    How can I customize this so that it says something along the lines:

    Sorry that email address has already been used.  Please submit with a different email.
