I'm using the P&T ContactForm Plugin. How can I make more field required?


In the version from Github only the message and email field are required.

Is there a way to do this with the ContactForm Plugin?

For form validation I typically use Parsley.js - it's dead easy to use.

There isn't a way (as far as I am aware) to make fields required from within your template or the plugin UI. The suggestion above fails as soon as JS is disabled and no JS solution should be relied on for validation.

You could fork the plugin and make fields required by editing https://github.com/pixelandtonic/ContactForm/blob/master/contactform/models/ContactFormModel.php
