Invalid Email Address Passed Validation Rule?Asked by ianggjames on January 02, 2015 at 09:19 AM
My form "Questionnaire - teachers' details - New & Update Forms" has the email address field defined as required, validated and confirmed - but I have just received an email notification where the email address was just "Kay Taylor"; so clearly not a valid email address.
How can this happen?
The JS on my webpage is:
and the Input coding is:
<div id="cid_2" class="form-input">
<input onkeypress="return noenter()" type="email" class=" form-textbox validate[required, Email]" id="input_153" name="q153_email153" size="30" value="" />
<input onkeypress="return noenter()" type="email" class="form-textbox validate[required, Email, Email_Confirm]" id="input_153_confirm" style="margin-top:8px;" size="30" />
Upon checking the URL of the website you shared, which is http://www.bellydancer.org.uk/2008/teachers.html, I see that you have done a lot of changes and it displays differently from the original form which is http://www.jotformeu.com/form/43272453969364. Is it because you embed the form using its full source code? May I know how you embedded your form to your website?
When checking the standalone link of your form, I see that the validation rule works as expected
I hope this helps. Let us know if you need more information on this.
All working now; thanks for your help.
