15 - Regex Validation

Regex (or regular expression) is a way to check if the user's input is correct. Regex is a language, and you can use PHP Regex with our plugin (PCRE, click here for more details).
For example, if you want to restrict your user to type only letters in some input fields:

  • Click on "PHP Regex"
  • Click on "New Regex (PHP)"
  • Add a "Name *" for your regex, for example, "Only letters" and write a Regex in the "Regex (PHP)" field, for example: "/^[a-zA-Z]$/" and click on "Save"
  • Go to the field on which you want to apply the regex rule, it must be a "Text" field
  • You can write the regex rule directly in the "Validation Regex Rule" field or load it from the library by clicking on the cloud icon.
  • Write an error message in the "Regex Error Message" field which you want to show in case the regex rule conditions are not met.

As a result:

  • If you try to put a number in your website product, you'll get an error message.
  • If you try to put only letters, no errors will be shown and the product can be added to the cart successfully after the calculation of price on the backend.

Why do I see a blank page or an empty area?

If you are working with our plugin and you see a blank page or an empty area of the screen then it means there could be some errors but WordPress doesn't let see you them.

To show those errors you need to:

  1. Edit via FTP the file "wp-config.php", change define( 'WP_DEBUG', false ); to define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); For more information click here
  2. Go again where you saw the blank page or the empty area. Now you should be able to see the errors.
  3. Maybe you can solve the problem on your own because most times it's a PHP extension missing on your server, a permission/ownership file problem, etc). But if you don't understand the error make a screenshot and open a new support request in the forum and we'll be happy to help you.
