    It looks like my other post didn't save for some reason? Anyway, let me try typing this out again!

    So I'm looking for a way to have severa inputs in a form use the same validator message. This is my scenario - I have 8 input fields all requiring 1 - 100 to validate correctly. I find it unnecessary to have 8 validator messages all say the same thing, so I'm looking for a way to have one message on the top of the form that says "must be 1 - 100." However, I can't get this to work without the "data-for" attribute.

    I could theoretically "hack" this by creating 8 validator messages, positioning them absolutely, so they would stack, looking like one message. That's a bit "hacky" and I'm hoping to do this the proper way.

    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time.
