Hi all, I am trying to build a website myself using V7. I am a Driving Instructor in the UK and am having serious trouble producing a page for potential pupils to complete and send to me. Shouldn't be too hard......... :twisted:

You mean a form for visitors to fill out that will email you what they filled out?

I would certainly be interested in this form thingy.
Since I might be asking to fill in a form for shipping info
or as a sign up sheet form, I'd like to learn on how to properly make this in Fusion 7
Thanks

Does your web hosting account include PHP language support?

Does THAT matter ?

I asked because you need a form-handling script to email you the results of a form submission by a site visitor.

You build a form in Fusion by first making something a form. I normally use a Layout Region or a Table. Go to its properties and check the "Is form" checkbox.

Then click on settings and you'll see a field to enter a form action. That's where you enter the name of the script that will process the submitted form data.

Since you have PHP, you should go to http://scripts.dbmasters.net and get FormMailer. It's easy to set up and works very well.

In the form itself, you'd use the tools available on the Forms Toolbar in Fusion to enter input fields and a submit button.
