Would any of you guys be able to recommend a contact form email service.
I am a novice & working through a sitepoint build your own website book & it suggests ‘freeback’…it looks a tad painful & i was wondering if there was a different option since the books publication.
I’ve searched the forum but most posts on this subject are a few years old too.
allforms is pretty straight forward & just what i was looking for thank you. I’ve tested it & been successful but i can’t quite figure out which bit of my markup i need to input for the required fields. I’ve attached a snip from the editor & was wondering if you might have the time to give me a pointer please.
Adding the required attribute gives you on-page validation, which is very useful for your users. But it is not 100% watertight. Older browsers don’t support it and malicious users (hackers) can circumvent it easily.
So you should really double up with post submission validation too.
I don’t know anything about “allforms” but from the text you posted, it sounds like you just type a list of required fields like this.
Well all it asks for is basic settings info, the link it provides at the end you paste into <form action= & it deals with the rest & i get to use the form I’ve already built…just trying to figure out how to clear the form data after it’s submitted.
I figure this still relies on a user clearing their own data? If someone else visits the contact page presumably they will see the data also if it’s not cleared.
I would like the data to clear automatically after it’s sent & the page refresh.
This works in as far as the info gets sent but i have to use the back button to see my contact page again.
<input type="submit" value="Send me this information" onclick="submitForm()"/>
My site is still in design stage & not live yet, but when it’s live could i link back to my contact page to refresh somehow?
