I have a front end form based on the entry form example provided by craft documentation which allows logged in users to submit an entry to a specific section. Form validation is not working in that required fields are not being picked up on submission. So if the field is empty it still submits the form.
I have the user group set up so users are not able to use the CP or submit live entries so the entry is sent through as disabled so that the admin users can monitor entries before enabling them.
Am I correct in thinking that because the entry is being saved as disabled that craft does not validate the post data? If this is correct what is the work around as I do not want users to be able to post live entries.
