jQuery Question

jquery php form submission bug

I am trying to submit a form using jquery and ajax.Basically, the issues are:

1.POST request not being sent

2.Form data not being validated

3.The form is not taking data on the second click of the submit button

for the 1st problem, a POST Request is being sent once i remove the validation portion. However, i do not know why the code mentioned below should not work

I have no idea why the second problem exists. I have changed the structure of my code time and again, but data is not being validated. I have tested the functions separately and they work, however they do not work when the submit button is pressed, i.e the if condition that is supposed to send the post data returns false (goes to else), even when the tests inside the if condition are true individually

the 3rd problem, i suspect, is probably due to the first. I am not so sure though.

scripts pre included are jquery.min.js 1.11.1, twitter bootstraps.min.js

Please, please help me out.

i posted a question previously and found out that the validation part is bugged. here is my previous question:

Jquery form validation and submission

Also, the console shows no JQuery errors.


First thing I'd suggest is don't do your validation in JQuery. Send the data to PHP and do the checking there.

Second, you've got a spelling error here: event.prevetnDefault();

Third, you're not doing anything with the results returned from register.php

success: function(result){
  var data="";
  console.log(result); // Check the result in console

Fourth, you mentioned it working when you removed the validation. Remove the validation one step at a time until you figure out which one is causing the problem. But like I said, you should be doing your validation in PHP.

Edit: I could be wrong, but I think maybe this line needs to be re-written:

if (!(name == '' || email == '' || mobile== '' || password == '' || repassword == '')){

if (name != '' && email != '' && mobile != '' && password != '' && repassword != '') {
