Image required in form - jquery

Image required in form - jquery

I have a form with some required fields.

<input id="update_title" name="update_title" type="text" tabindex="1" title="Please enter a title." required="true">

Works for a text field, but

<input id="news_image_small" name="news_image_small" type="file" class="connect_button" tabindex="4" title="Please upload an image to accompany your news story." required="true">

What am I missing?

That should work. Do you have a sample URL where I can test?

Update line 26 to:

$WAFV_Redirect = "index.php?invalid=1&LodgeID=". ((isset($_POST["LodgeID"]))?$_POST["LodgeID"]:"") ."";

That will add the invalid $GET variable when the validation fails and trigger the repopulating of the other form elements.

You have a misplaced </div> tag on line 275... that might be causing the file fields to not validate properly with jquery.

Thanks Ray.

I made that change, but still isn't working.

I have restored a version from my local backup that had the validation on the image width working, and uploaded that...

Line 13 should be:
$image_info2 = getimagesize($_FILES["news_image"]["tmp_name"]);

Thanks Ray - that has fixed the validation on the width values of the images.

But the jQuery validation still isn't working if they are blank, and still losing the title and details text if the form is submitted when the image validations fail.

You still have mismatched <div> tags and malformed html on the page. If you give me a url to view it live and FTP access I'll look into it further.

Thanks Ray.

I looked at that and still don't see the mismatched <div> tag after commenting them all.

OK - I spotted the issue with the <div>s needing to be within another row, so that has fixed the query validation when no images are selected.

So the only thing wrong now is the title and details fields retaining any text if the image width heights validations fail so that people don't lose it and need to add it again.
