I am trying to check if the commentform is filled in after submition, and only submit it when it is filled in.

I am using:

$('form').submit(function (e) {
    // Handle Checks

But it's not submitting at all, any idea why this isn't working? Works on regular contact form in wordpress btw.


  • I guess there is a typo, it should be e.preventDefault() and not e.preventDefault. Can you please check? – Maruti Mohanty Oct 1 '13 at 11:22
  • @MarutiMohanty Yes. My bad. I already have that in code though. And it's not returning any warnings/errors. (JS) – user1410110 Oct 1 '13 at 11:25
  • Can't answer. But the answer is: I found an other way around it. I solved it replacing: $('form').submit(); With: $('form').unbind('submit'); $('#submit').click(); :) – user1410110 Oct 1 '13 at 11:43

Original Poster's answer in comments also worked for me, will share it here so this can have a solution.




 $('form').unbind('submit'); $('#submit').click();

I used this to submit comments with JQuery with the ENTER key rather than clicking the button:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
$('#comment').keydown(function(event) {
    if (event.keyCode == 13) {//capture ENTER Key 
       $('form').unbind('submit'); $('#submit').click();
        return false;
