How to set the value of a field to the database content and then the validated entry?

Hi Subway.

So how does the jQuery Form Validation help me, in this instance? It looks exactly the same as the Server Validation in that it requires input, and that input needs to pass certain criteria (text, e-mail etc) and if it fails it displays a validation error.

That does not solve the problem with the image file being wiped upon validation does it?

Is this simply not possible? I'm not clear what all this validation is about if you end up having to spoon feed instructions, verbally, to the client about operating it.

I'm trying to create a fool-proof method for adding news to a website. I want to keep it all within a one form process, with validation to ensure that someone doesn't try an SQL insert.

The only problem with what I have in place right now is that any image that's been selected for upload is wiped upon a failed validation meaning the client has to re-browse for the image file before they can proceed. After 3 or 4 failed validations, which I know is unlikely but is still possible, that is going to start to become pretty frustrating.

How do I resolve that? Can I resolve that?

Thank you.
