    Hi,

    I've spent some time to set up and customise a basic form which has been installed on my site. I must have tried half a dozen test-submit's so as to identify any areas that i needed to fix. However, submitting the form now just raises an ugly message on the screen but i can't read all of it.. is there something i've missed out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    First off, thanks for your interest in our service. I've cloned your form and made some tests. I have found out the reason why you are getting an error message. Unique Submission is set to ''Loose Check''. You just need change it to ''No Check''. Click to see the instructions.

    Feel free to contact us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks, so no-check, loose-check and strict check has nothing to do with validation?

    If you want to prevent users to make submissions on the same form, you can use unique submissions. But your visitors won't be able to hit the submit button more than once. You can also use captcha to stop spam. So you will know if the form is submitted by a real browser. It might be an option too.

    Ok, Cheers. & one last question, is it possible to style the background of the validation error messages? (for example, name filed isn't completed, and the 'required field' message pops up. However it renders the entire background of the form in a pink color which isn't in keeping with the site)
