Hi,
I have a form that when I submit as shown below, the subject rule error shows for a brief second before it continues on with the submission. It doesn't stop the form from submitting. Can't figure out what to do...bit extra code in there for the CKEditor. No errors showing up in firebug, all works, submits, except if I intentionally leave the subject field blank, I see the error for a brief second and it keeps going.

<script type="text/javascript">

$( "#save-exit" ).live('click', function() {

	$("#emailsettings").validate({
		rules: {
		subject: {required: true}
		}
		});
        
        window.onbeforeunload = 'NULL';
        
        var content = {
            html_HEAD:CKEDITOR.instances.html_HEAD.getData(),
            html_MAIN:CKEDITOR.instances.html_MAIN.getData(),
            title: $('input[name=title]').val(),
            subject: $('input[name=subject]').val(),
            from_name: $('input[name=from_name]').val(),
            from_email: $('input[name=from_email]').val(),
            scheduled: $('input[name=scheduled]').val(),
            id: $("#id").val(),
            cid: $("#cid").val(),
            template: $("select[name='templates']").val(),
            sponsor_id: $("select[name='sponsor']").val(),
        }

        $.ajax({
            url: 'email/save',
            type: 'post',
            success: function (data) {
            window.location.href = '/app/email';
            },
            data: content
        });
    });
   
</script>

when you submit and see the error msg briefly :
it's validating but you haven't told it to submit only if validation gives a thumbs up ...

      
if($("#emailsettings").validate().form()) {      
      $.ajax({
            url: 'email/save',
            type: 'post',
            data: content,
            success: function (data) {
                  window.location.href = '/app/email';
            }            
      });
}      
return false;      

stick this into your code (replace your existing ajax) and it should be good to go ...
