I have an instant site at moment and am in process of converting it to a homemade site in Dreamweaver. I have managed to transfer most of my pages... but I can't work out how to sort out the contact page. Help please???

Ok... thanks again... I'll try it out and see what I think looks best. Its handy to know though in case I need to use it.

I've run out of problems for the present time... but no doubt will be back soon!!!!! I guess I have to post on the normal website forum from now on though. :-)

Glad to hear you've got things working :)

Re. captcha:
After your FORM tag you have a list of fields - add the captcha line to that list.

The page will still look the same but the captcha 'request' will appear when someone tries to submit a message.

You may find that you don't need the captcha. I only use them if I find a feedback form is being abused (spammed).

Hi Hmmm...

Thanks for taking the time to help me so much. I seem to have cracked the Commment Page now with your help... thanks. I can't find where I should enter the code for the security box though.... . I know you will know. I have tested the comment box and the emails arrive ok.

I'd never have managed to get this far without your help.... thanks again.

Hi,
I managed to find your 'form' it looks as if you are nearly there! :)

You need to create the following files to stop any 404 errors (the pages should contain suitable messages):

thank_you.htm
missing_fields.html
email_could_not_be_sent.html

And also remove the duplicate /body /html tags.

Thanks guys!

I have now got my site up onto the web Hmmm... but I am still working on getting the contact page to work... the trouble is I don't understand much of the technical jargon. I will persevere though and keep you posted.

Always trying to help!

Yes you're right, the 'form' will need to be online for everything to work.

I can recommend Filezilla a free 'open source' FTP application. Using a standalone FTP application is the best way to manage your site.
Download the 'client' version not the server one.

You would just have to insert it into your html page (I didn't find it difficult the first time), although php is the way to go, unless you ever migrate to a host that doesn't support it.

Thanks Hmmm... I knew you would be the first to get back to me with help. I have followed the instructions and presume all the fields don't actually become active until I upload my site, which will be my next learning curve!!! It was because of your encouragement I decided to improve my site with some drop down menus which I can't load in the instant sites.

I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Can't you use a JavaScript form?

Or do people still disable it in their browser
