[Resolved] Even though field in post form is required you can move on without filling out

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem: The user has several generic fields set to be required, but the form submission completes even when values for the fields are not provided

Solution: It turns out that the user was using the same slug for the generic fields. Once one of them has value, the form ignores the other fields. If each one of the fields has a unique value, the validation works as expected.

On my post form hidden link
I have 3 checkboxes in the button of the page. You need to check them all to create your camp. But even though you do not check the boxes you can still create the camp.
How do I fix this?

Hello and thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

All three checkboxes have the same slug. So, once one of them is checked, the form will think that all three are checked. Change the slug for the fields to have a unique slug per field and it should enforce the validation. Check this screenshot hidden link

Let me know what you will get.


Aha I see! It seems to work now! Thank you 🙂


My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
