What library does the form validation of Silverstripe use? I am having problems with most of my effects since they use MooTools and it has conflicts with some libraries. I relieved the conflict between mootools and jquery by using the jQuery.noConflict(); function and it allowed my effects to work while viewing the forum or event calendar. But whenever I try logging in or registering, they stop working. My mind tells me it's because of the validator.js that creates the conflict with mootools.

Has anyone encountered the same problem? Is anyone using mootols as well and having trouble? Can I just remove the form validation or create my own from mootools? Where can I find the validation javascript file?

The Javascript is included in sapphire/Forms/Validator.php (currently uses Prototype).

To disable javascript validation use:


This could be called from _config.php to disable site-wide javascript validation, or from ContentController::init() to disable form validation just for that template.
