Set Up Files and Extensions

Set Up Files and Extensions

I must be a real dope. Just purchased the Contact Solutions pack and have been trying to follow their instructions after downloading the files but I can't seem to figure this out.
1. I can't find any mpx files to add to my dreamweaver extension manager.
2. Their instructions tell you how to add the php files if your using a dreamweaver template but what do you do if your not?

This is the first time I'm using PHP to incorporate into my contact forms so maybe the instructions make sense to others familar with PHP but to a newbie I'm totally lost. I purchased this product after reviewing their tutorial anticipating utilizing some type of GUI interface but it doesn't look like that's what I got.

I really want to use this and already spent a number hours trying to figure it out. Is there someone out there that can explain what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks
Swany

The contact form solution pack is not an extension.

There is no MXP file to install.

solution packs are pre built php applications that where created using the extensions.

to use the contact form solution pack, you need to edit the settings in the WA_Globals/WAGlobal.php file for your server environment, then upload the contact form solution pack files to your host.

Once everything is uploaded, browse to the contactus.php page, fill in the form and the information will be emailed to the address you specify in the WA_Globals.php file.


more specific details can be found in the Getting Started guide on the contact form solution pack support page:
