Bad value was found for form attribute novalidate. This could cause unexpected behavior in the built in HTML5 form validation.

<form method="post" action="test.html" novalidate="true">

How do I fix this ?

According to the W3C novalidate attribute can only be used as follows:





<form method="post" action="test.html" novalidate="novalidate">
<form method="post" action="test.html" novalidate="">
<form method="post" action="test.html" novalidate>
