It would be much nicer and much more user-friendly if errors in forms in the modification repository and other places would be displayed inline.

Maybe a form / validation framework would be overkill, but it would certainly make things like handling forms easier to implement.

I feel this should be incorporated in any form anywhere on the web, and certainly in fluxbb, see [1] for an explanation.

Ideally, form input is verified by the server via an asynchronous request. Progressive enhancement is made easy this way.

Using a pure javascript (say jQuery) implementation for validation, content would have to be checked by the server anyway as the request might have been altered.
