Place the javascript files within the head section

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.validate.min.js</script>
You should set the name and id of your html form same as $(“#registerForm”).validate();

Step 2:

For each required form element just place class=”required” and specify minlength tag inside it. For example

Name field -> class=”optional”
Email field -> class = “required email”

Sample Code:

For optional fields, you can specify class=”optional” or just leave it.
