Setup form parameters in FrontPage
Microsoft FrontPageTM is probably one of the most popular HTML editors
around. 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 FrontPage
When your form is designed, open it in FrontPage:
Step 2: Select "Form properties" menu
Somewhere within your form area (marked with dotted line surrounding your form)
click with your right mouse button and select Form properties
menu. If this selection is not available in the menu you are probably not in the
marked form area with your mouse pointer.
Step 3: Select your form to send results to a script
In the Form properties window check Send to other
and select Custom ISAPI, NSAPI, CGI, or ASP script option from the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Set form options
Click the Options... button in Form properties window.
||Set to your form action URL as given to you in your account
||Select POST from the options
|-> Encoding type:
||Should be EMPTY if you don't use file attachments. If your form
uses file attachments set it to multipart/form-data
Step 5: Save settings
- click OK to close Options... window
- click OK to close Form properties window
- save changes to your HTML file and upload to your server
Your form is now ready!
