Form validation: error message

(This post was last modified: 09-22-2018, 04:49 AM by Serializable.)

Base URL for registration page:

Registration page:
PHP Code:
<?php echo validation_errors('<p class="bg-danger">'); ?>
echo form_open('users/register', ['id' => 'register_form''class' => 'form-horizontal']); ?>
    <div class="form-group">
echo form_label('First name');
        echo form_input([
            'name' => 'first_name',
            'value' => set_value('first_name'),
            'class' => 'form-control',
            'placeholder' => 'Enter first name',


PHP Code:
class Users extends CI_Controller
    public function register()
        $this->form_validation->set_rules('first_name''First name''trim|required|min_length[2]');
        $this->form_validation->set_rules('last_name''Last name''trim|required|min_length[2]');

        if ($this->form_validation->run() == false) {
            return $this->load->view('layouts/main', ['main_view' => 'users/register']);


When I open the URL for the very first time there were no validation errors produced.
But if I try to fill the form and for example provide only 'fisrt name' (and do not provide 'last name'), then validation errors generated and displayed on the register page.
So why were no errors genererated in the beginning, when I open the base url for the very first time?
