how do i save form data?


G

Guest

when i use the feedback tamplets in fp 2003 and save it there is no place to
save the data from the form. it suppose to creat a folder caled _private
which contain a text file called feedback to save the data but that never
happen.

the form i want to use is very simple i just want to know the feed back from
the site visitor. and what do do if i want the data to be sent to my email?

After you have created the form, you need to publish it via FP's File Menu | Publish Site to a
http://www.yourdomainname.com The live/remote server must have the FP extensions installed.

You have to test the form via http://www.yourdomainname.com or locally http://localhost/webname on a
server that has the FP extensions installed.

Do you want the data from the form as an email to you?
If so, try the below

This doesn't need FP extensions. I know as my site doesn't have them and
this works for me


<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript">
function testform()
{
// put any tests in here
}
// --------------------
function sendform()
{
with (document.form1)
{
var body = ''
var i = elements.length , j = 0
while (i-- > 2) // drop last two elements
{
body += elements[j].name + ": "
+ elements[j].value
+ '%0d%0a' // line break after each line
j += 1
} // end while
}
window.location = "mailto:" + "name" + "@" + "domain" + ".com"
+ "?subject=Response%20from%20Form"
+ "&body=" + body
}
// --------------------
</script>
</head>
<body>

How did you create and upload this form to the live/remote server?

You needed to have a web / site open in FP via File Menu | Open Web / Site and then create your
form, then you needed to use File Menu | Publish Web / Site to the live/remote server at
http://www.yourdomainname.com.

You can't copy and paste it, which is why it is not working.

If publishing is not active, then you do not have site open, just a page.
