jQuery Validation Failing!

Please can someone tell me why the jQuery validations on the below form only validates the 1st 2 fields on submit.


On this sample I have applied the required class (class="required") to all inputs that need validation. I originally tried using the below code, but this did not work at all.

Only a sample, not the actual code!

rules: {
			input_22: "required",
			input_23: "required",
			input_24: "required"

Open in new window

I get the feeling there is something on my form messing with things but can't work out what it is.

Any help much appreciated

You need to specify a name for each input element. jQuery - validation only shows the error message on the first of all elements with the same name. In your case this same name is the empty one.
