    Error handling when pasting source code into my site

    Asked by ktomasso on October 06, 2016 at 03:43 PM

    I chose to paste the HTML into my site to keep the markup and styles to a minum. I kept all of the script tags intact but removed all styles and links to external style sheets. 

    Everything works, however when there's an error from the server, e.g. a required field not properly filled in, it takes the user to a separate jotform error page with a link to get back to my site after submit. I'd much rather have the error print out on my contact page. 

    Which snippets of code control the error handling on the page? It seems I've lost all my client-side error handling as well. I'd like to add this functionality back in while keeping my markup and stylesheet clean of most of the jotform defaults. Is this possible?

    The validation seems to be not working due to conflict between form Prototype JS and jQuery on your web page.

    You can try to add the jQuery.noConflict() snippet after your scripts.

    <script type="text/javascript"> $.noConflict(); </script>

    The validation CSS is under formCss.css file.

    <link target="_blank" href="https://cdn.jotfor.ms/static/formCss.css?3.3.15156" rel="nofollow" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
