    I use codeigniter for my frame work but I would like to know if there is away to get the validation error on views page to show below the specified input.

    Currently I have to put at the

    <?php echo validation_errors(); ?>

    at top of the form and it will show all error in that section

    Here is my contact controller contactus.php

    <?php if ( ! defined('BASEPATH')) exit('No direct script access allowed');
    class Contactus extends MX_Controller {
        public function index() {
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('name', 'Name', 'required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('email', 'Email', 'required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('website', 'Website', 'required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('subject', 'Subject', 'required');
            $this->form_validation->set_rules('message', 'Message', 'required');
            if($this->form_validation->run() == FALSE)

    Problem now solved now just had to make form look like this

    <div class="form-group">
    <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Your Name" name="name" >
    <?php echo form_error('name'); ?>
