Making the Backend CMS validate

Go to End

Hey, Ive been trying to learn silverstript for a few of days now. I decided I would create a user page and wanted to create an email field in the cms. However, there is no validation run in the backend. I really want this because if I allow others to administer the site, they should not be able to use an invalid email incase of breaking the system.

I also tested the password confirm one as well, also doesnt validate. I would assume it works in the front end, but I cant have the page published with invalid data.

Perhaps theres something Im not doing right?...

any suggestions?
