In working through this further this evening, I have come across two things.... when adding validation, the file tries to save as an HTML file instead of PHP. I had to manually change this and am not sure how this effects the forms_validation file that is generated. Also, I changed the validation trigger from "any form post" to on submit. The form is sending an email with no information included.
A zip file with the changes is attached. After all this, I felt ALL files, not just my code were pertinent.
