Anybody have a clue why IE and Opera wont prevent this form from submitting? http://goo.gl/YUtac
If you click "Submit Form" in FX/Safari/Chrome it shows how it should work - it is supposed to prevent submission unless the spam question is filled out correctly. However IE/Opera only show the red error if you put a value in the input. But they still do not prevent submission. In IE/Opera it goes strait to the php validation. I have not a clue why this could be. If anyone has any ideas please do tell. Thank you!
I am using the http://bassistance.de/jquery-plugins/jquery-plugin-validation/
If it helps, it seems that the custom google search part is responsible for the problem.
Why? Because it creates another form, and forms within forms are according to HTML specs) strictly not allowed. The validator is inadvertently trying to get the settings for that google search form.
Solution: Move the google search part outside of your existing form.
Thats it! Thank you very much. I had never noticed that before. Now to try and figure out how to move the form validly in that mess of tables...
