I am using jquery form validation and jquery multiple file upload script but I am having problem with it. My multiple upload script works like this

 <input type="file" name="userfile[]" size="20" class="multi MultiFile-applied" type="file" maxlength="5" accept="gif|jpg" />

and I dont want to apply jquery validation code on this field but I am getting this error." Please enter no more than 5 characters". How can I get rid of this error and my form validation for other fields is as follow

<script type="text/javascript">

    $().ready(function() {

        // validate signup form on keyup and submit
            rules: {
                name: "required",

                phone: {
                    required: true,
                    minlength: 7

                email: {
                    required: true,
                    email: true

            messages: {
                name: "Please enter name",
                            first_name:"Please enter first name",
                            last_name:"Please enter last name",

                price: {
                    required: "Please enter price"
                phone: {
                    required: "Please provide a phone"

                email: "Please enter a valid email address"



Can anyone help. Thanks in advance.

Remove maxlength="5" ?

But I have to keep maxlength attribute as in my multiple image upload script maxlenth controls the number of images and when I apply the maxlength attribute it starts giving me error is there any possible way to ignore the rule for this specific fields. thanks
