Space before and after email address
« on: October 31, 2021, 11:44:28 PM »
Hello everyone,

On my website i'm using a form that is created withe the mpform module.
I have a problem with the validation of the email address field.
I think this validation is done by some function off WebsiteBaker.
The problem is that there are a lot of people who type a space after their email adress, and then the form reject the email address.
I know that there is a php function called "trim" to remove spaces on the beginning and the end of a string.
Is it possible to apply this function on the email addres field or on the function that validates the email?

Does anyone have a solution for this? I know a littlebit of php but not enough to find my way in the WebsiteBaker code.

Hello, i think this is a function of mpForm (not WB).
The author of mpForm (Martin aka mrbaseman) could have a fast solution.

well... a quick&dirty fix. Here is a pre-release, but with this one the leading and trailing spaces may occur here and there where they couldn't so far because the invalid input was rejected up to now
