I am trying to add Jquery validation to the comments page in WordPress. Everything works except it won't post the fields. May someone help?

FUNCTIONS PAGE

    function comment_validation_init() {
    if(is_single() && comments_open() ) { ?>

    <script type="text/javascript">

    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery('#commentform').bootstrapValidator({
    message: 'This value is not valid',
    feedbackIcons: {
        valid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-ok',
        invalid: 'glyphicon glyphicon-remove',
        validating: 'glyphicon glyphicon-refresh'
    },
    fields: {
        author: {
            validators: {
                    notEmpty: {
                        message: 'Please Enter Your Name'
                    }

            }
        },
        email: {
            validators: {
                    notEmpty: {
                        message: 'Please Enter Your Email'
                    },
                    emailAddress: {
                        message: 'This Is Not A Valid Email Address'
                }
            }

        },
        comment: {
            validators: {
                    notEmpty: {
                        message: "Don't Forget To Leave A Comment"
                    }
            }                
        }
    }
});
    });

    </script>

    <?php
}
}
add_action('wp_footer', 'comment_validation_init');

NO IDEA!!!!!

Re: Why isn't comment validation working? 80 80

I'm trying to read your code but I'm not sure what bootstrapValidator does? It seems this is a third-party plugin. Unfortunately, it's not possible for us to debug your code because the bug seems to either be within the bootstrapValidator function or a bug with the way you are sending your data to it.

Do you have a link to bootstrapValidator for us to investigate?

commented: Of course. http://bootstrapvalidator.votintsev.ru. How do I edit my question, so I can add the link? +0
