SOLVED: GJ: How to validate the description field on Group save?

Hi,

Is there a way to make the GroupJive field "description" mandatory and force users to fill it with at least 50 characters?

Regards, Noa

There's no functionality to make description mandatory at this time. If this is something critical to your site I can review adding a trigger that'll let you add custom validation with CB Auto Actions though.

Went ahead and improved the triggers while handling your GJ About question. The below in CB Auto Actions will let you add new validation.

Global
Triggers: gj_onBeforeCreateGroup, gj_onBeforeUpdateGroup
Type: Code
User: Self
Access: Everybody
Action
Method: PHP
Code:
if ( cbutf8_strlen( $variables['var1']->getString( 'description', '' ) ) < 50 ) {
	$variables['var1']->setError( 'Please provide a description' );
	
	return false;
}

return true;
Output
Display: return

The above will output "Please provide a description" validation error if they try to save without a description. To add client side validation you can use the below.

Global
Triggers: gj_onBeforeDisplayGroupEdit
Type: Code
User: Self
Access: Everybody
Action
Method: jQuery
Code:
$( '.gjGroupEditForm #description' ).attr( 'minlength', 50 ).addClass( 'required' );

That will add a minimum length requirement of 50 and mark the field as required.
