ColdFusion Form entries are incomplete or invalid

Working with some basic HTML forms with ColdFusion when I came across this very ‘helpful’ error message.


It took me awhile to find out what was happening, but seemed to be something to do with these form fields:

After trial and error and modifying the form fields… I eventually ended up with:

Removing the “_required” from the form field names seemed to have fixed my issue and the form posted with no problems.

I have no idea why the “_required” string in the name was causing the error but ended up being a very frustrating error with no help from the Debugger at all.

Any comments are appreciated as to why this was an issue?
