TRY ME: jQuery form using modal and validate plugins and a character count.
- Validate plugin is called via one line - $("#shareInfo").validate(); which is the ID on the form.
- I added the class="required" to each of the input/text area elements that needs to be validated. Added class "email" to have it validate for e-mail.
- A great live character counter was applied, thanks to http://thepalmcivet.com
- Overlay is created using Simple Modal.
- Both buttons above populate the same overlay.
