Based on this discussion which I encountered myself:
I am also having trouble with using one single error summary with CForm with nested forms.
Having separate error summaries for each nested form worked but seems ugly because a summary form breaks the form in the middle
I have tried creating a single error summary if you go through the more classical approach, instead of using CForm, and this code below worked perfectly creating a single
<?php print $form->errorSummary($models); //yes this can indeed be an array of models (since in this form we have multiple models) ?>
Is there a missing element inside Yii or am I using it wrong?
Note: I am using version Yii 1.1.8
