Ok...so here's the deal. While my errors have been solved and with copy/paste I have been able to get things working. There's an issue that still shows up.
I'm not sure if require once for the two validation php files are supposed to show up when only client validation is used so this may not be a problem. But for me, when using client validation only, well, they don't show up. They only do when server validation is used. That being said. That's not the biggest problem since it seems to work anyway.
My problem is with the client validation itself and how I make selections for my settings (alphanumeric specifically), realize they are not applying properly, and when I go back in to verify; everything is changed...Uploaded files show what I'm talking about.
