I am building my first Expresso Store and having some trouble making fields required. Here is what my checkout form looks like. Note all the fields that that I have marked as required. When I submit the form, it validates the order_email and displays the error message inline. When I fill out the email field and hit submit, none of the other fields are validated.

I'm on EE 2.6.1 and Store 1.6.4.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    I seem to remember having an issue like this before. Can't quite remember what the problem ended up being, but if I remember correctly, it had something to do with not having tags in the template to output errors for all of the fields being validated. Commented Aug 14, 2013 at 18:36

    If you remove error_handling="inline" do you see any errors? Commented Aug 14, 2013 at 18:58
  • I have the same experience. I see the error message about Email being required, but when I fill out the email field and submit, no other error messages are shown. Commented Aug 14, 2013 at 19:53
  • Do you have a link to the development site we can take a look at? Commented Aug 15, 2013 at 17:31
  • Just sent an email to [email protected] with the URL. Thanks! Commented Aug 15, 2013 at 18:30

Generally if there are no errors displaying, but the form is submitting, it's because there are some other validation errors which you don't have inline errors in your template for.

Try removing error_handling="inline" from your tag, then resubmit the form and see which errors display.
