Setup form parameters in Dreamweaver MX
Macromedia DreamWeaverTM is a popular HTML editor. This guide explains how to set the correct form properties to make your
HTML form work with FormNut.
First of all you will of course need a FormNut account and go through the Add
a form process in your account. There you will be given a Form action
URL, something like:
(you must use your own action URL, don't use the one above!)
Step 1: Open your HTML form in DreamWeaver
When your form is designed, open it in DreamWeaver:
Your entire form should be surrounded by a dotted red outline. If it is not
go to menu Insert > Form > Form then move all your form elements (text
boxes, check boxes, buttons) inside the red dotted box.
Step 2: Select form in Properties inspector
Click on the dotted red outline marking your form with your mouse pointer. Below
your editor window (in Properties inspector) should now be available form properties:
Step 3: Set form options
Set the form properties as follows:
||Set to your form action URL as given to you in your account
||Select POST from the options
||Should be EMPTY or application/x-www-form-urlencoded if you don't use file
attachments. If your form uses file attachments set it to multipart/form-data
Step 4: Save settings
Save changes to your HTML file and upload to your server
Your form is now ready!
