I cannot make {error:my_field_name} to work. It is like it doesn't parse. Here is my code :

{exp:channel:form channel="mychannel" return="test/index" error_handling="inline"}
        <label for="concerne">Concerne <span class="champs_requis">*</span></label>
        <div class="error">{error:concerne}</div>

If I use

{if error}<p class="error">{error}</p>{/if}

it gives me error validation messages but I need manually constructed fields so I can't use {custom_fields} loop.

Is this happening to someone else (and I have to report the bug) or just me? If so, what am I doing wrong?

EE version : 3.3.2

In your first code example you're using a <div> tag for the error styling but in the second code example you're using a <p> tag. I suggest inspecting your code to make sure CSS isn't hiding the .error class in your first code example.

  • I tried even with only {error:concerne} tag without encapsulating into html tags (div or p) but it doesn't give me any result... Is that a bug of EE3 ?

In fact it was a bug of the EE version. The bug has been fixed in EE 3.3.3 release.
