We have a set of sitecollection, with around 30 lists, where the forms do not appear as modal windows.
Everyone of those now needs a new webpart added. Adding the webpart itself works. When I edit the newly added webpart and hit "Apply" or "OK" the validation kicks in and prevents the postback from happening.
The only way to apply the configuation changes to the webpart is to fill in a character in each required field (valid or not doesn't matter).
Is there a way to prevent this behaviour from happening or temporarily disable the validation while editing the page?
