I don’t want the validation to be in the User area. I only want the front end to have the validation. I did a condition which will return if it is the admin page by using is_admin(). I’ve also tried wrapping the following code inside function in a !(is_admin). What happens is when the page is posted it goes to a page with the /?updated=true and displays the error message. It is not like before where you get a red box above the input field that says the error. So basically I want the validation to only happen on the front end. Admins can edit users in the backend without any problems. Please help I’m so close.
