    Hi There,

     

    Doesn't JotForm provide server side validation. Some users with JS disabled are submitting empty form entries and jot Form just show captcha but does not provide any server side validation. Can we enable it anyhow?

    The validation should work for all users.  If the form is embedded to a webpage, there may be something in the page causing the validation to fail.  Replace the current embed code with the iFrame code to ensure there is no interaction between the form and the rest of the page:

    Using an Iframe is fine but I need to use the embed code. Also, I am talking about the server side validation. I am using the embed code without scripts and on clicking submit it redirects to JotForm's page and empty fields are not validated. It goes to this page: https://submit.jotform.me/submit/62066565972465/ and this just show a captcha. IF catpcha is submitted correctly, then the form is being submitted without any values.

    Does the iFrame code allow for the validation to work properly?  If not, please share the URL of your webpage where the form is embedded and we will be happy to have a look.
