Did you use a child theme for this? any other problems?
can you explain this further “and I created a field and used the jquery validation plugin to validate.”? … not sure what you mean by ‘created a field’ and I’ve never used that plugin… is it required?
This is exactly the functionality I’m looking for. Can you please describe in further detail how to implement this? did you put this in Functions.php? or what? and how does the jquery validation plugin work in all this? aka step by step please.
