If I just return dd($validator) before the redirect.
FF::ff_anychecked Validates that a radio button in selected in a radio group, or that a checkbox has been checked in a checkbox group.
Can be used with the following elements: FF::ff_securitycode_entered Checks that a security code was entered. FF::ff_securitycode_ok Checks that a valid security code was entered. FF::ff_showvalidation Displays element validation - Used for debugging.
I can run this on the form page When I submit the form and it returns back to the page. I'm not sure how to trouble shoot this or how to get my error messages. But doing (what I think is) the same thing on this project, and I can't get flashed messages to stay. The only difference I know for sure is the one it works on is laravel 5.2.14 and the new one, where it doesn't work is 5.2.31.
So either there is a change between the two I i'm not taking into account.
