In this tutorial we will be using j Query and a j Query form validation plugin to make it work.We could have used just j Query for validation but that would require us to write a lot of code depending upon how bigger the form that needs validated is.Wordpress is always very flexible when it comes to its custom development part.Whilst there are thousands of plugins available to utilize within the wordpress including free as well as premium ones but certainly a time comes when there is need of an hour to custom develop a wordpress site. This tutorial will help you create a form that is validated by j Query at client's side but surely it is like a mark on a stone to validate the form at server side as well when the form has been submitted because the clients side information is never to be trusted therefore it is always the best practice to self secure as much as possible.This article will teach you how to add validation to your Word Press comment forms, using j Query.With validation, users can submit their comment and instantly see if they’ve hit an issue.Here are four good reasons why plugins are bad for simple contact forms: I could probably go on.

There are loads of plugins around for everything you could ever wish for in a Word Press blog, but I feel both rewarded and secure when I build features from scratch. Most of the time I don’t want to mess around with a plugin’s UI, or the plugin does way more than I actually want it to do. It’s a great learning experience, you know what’s going on under the hood and you’re gaining skills for another time.
If you’ve created and left it empty, visiting your newly created “Contact Us” page will yield a blank page. Quickly pad it out with the following, and it will look just like a normal page again.
Update (): I’ve updated the script here, primarily to jump to the latest version of the bassistance plugin.
In wp-content/themes, add a new folder called “contact-form.” Within that, create two new files — and
