WordPress Contact Form 7 Plugin

Is there a way to validate that a text field is a date? I tried using the Date data type, can't format it, etc. I read it has to be a MySQL date format (YYYY-MM-DD). Most humans don't find that intuitive.

Also, is there a Date Picker option you can hook to a field to provide an intuitive date selection mechanism?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I thought that would be the response. I found it but was reluctant because the documentation was non-existent, but I may try it. Have you used it yourself?

I have used it, on one implementation, but it was some time ago, been using gravity forms for over a year, so it has been some time since I used it, the primary concern now is that it has not been updated in some time and has been tested/confirmed only to 3.9, not a huge issue but keep that in mind.

or you could get the jquery ui add on and do the code to attach it yourself.

I've used it and it works wonderfully.
