An easy yet useful jQuery plugin used to validate the form values your users input when clicking the submit button. 

Features:

  • Auto saves content users input to prevent from losing data.
  • Posts your form with Ajax.
  • Some useful options to customize the form validation.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery library and jQuery form validation plugin in the footer to reduce the page load time.

<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.form-validation.min.js"></script>

2. Create an html form

<form id="testform">
<div class="field">
<label for="full_name">Full Name</label>
<input type="text" name="full_name" id="full_name" class="required">
<div class="val-message">Please enter your first name</div>
</div>
<div class="field">
<label for="web_address">Your Web Address</label>
<input type="url" name="web_address" id="web_address" class="required">
<div class="val-message">Please enter a valid URL</div>
</div>
<div class="field">
<label for="email_address">Email Address</label>
<input type="email" name="email_address" id="email_address" class="email">
<div class="val-message">Please enter a valid email address</div>
</div>
<div class="field">
<label for="your_message">Your Message</label>
<textarea name="your_message" id="your_message" class="required"></textarea>
<div class="val-message">Please enter a valid email address</div>
</div>
<button type="submit">Submit</button>
<button type="reset">Clear</button>
</form>

3. Just call the plugin and you're done

<script>
$(function(){
$('#testform').formValidation();
});
</script>

4. All the options

<script>
$(function(){
$('#testform').formValidation({
