    Don't allow empty form fields upon submission?

    I don't want empty fields to be submitted and I don't want them to be able to hit the space bar and submit either, I am using this right now:

    PHP Code:
    if(empty($_POST['f_name']) || strlen(trim($_POST['f_name']===0)))
    {
        
    $errors[] = 'Please fill in your First Name';
     } 
    However, even when I test the form and hit the space bar and then submit, it is allowing it as a valid name, where am I going wrong?

    Shouldn't it be this?
    PHP Code:
    if(empty($_POST['f_name']) || strlen(trim($_POST['f_name'])) ==0)
    {


    better still
    PHP Code:
    $fname trim($_POST['f_name']);

    if(empty(
    $fname))
    {
        
    //error
