Hi all, I am trying to add some further validation to my registration form. I am using the memberprofiles module.
I found this tutorial on SSbits,, and it asks users to remove Silverstripes built in JS validator by finding the following function:

class ContactPage_Controller extends Page_controller{
function init() {
Validator::set_javascript_validation_handler('none'); }

But it doesnt tell you which file this code is in?

I have followed the rest of the tutorial and added the code to my page.php, however it doesnt seem to be working.

I think its because I have to turn off the silverstripe JS validator?
Anyone had this problem before? Or know where I can find the function?
