Yes. Server-Side and Client-Side are applied to the date field. All date-types and format were set as supposed to according to WA documentation, but it still would not pass validation. Removing validation caused the date to insert as 0000-00-00 everytime obviously since the client validations which handled reformatting was removed.
It does not seem that the validation works as is it supposed to, or I cannot find clear WA documentation outside the forums to get it to work properly. Anyone else have this issue?
As a solution, I have followed this thread's instructions by Dani Chankhour:
With this implementation, I was able to leave all validations in place (client and server side) that were created via CSS Form Builder and after when I added the client side js based validation.
I still have a lot of testing to do to make sure this method is fool-proof, but maybe this will help someone else.
Thanks for your help Eric/Dani. I appreciate it! -DL
