Confused.!

Hi there people New Here.!

Ok I purchased the Super Suite.
Installed the CSS Form Creator & Universal Email. In Dreamweaver Exchange CS5.

Opened Dreamweaver and created a file in Php format.
Then selected Insert > Webassit > CSS Form Creator.

Created the form and modified it all and then saved it.!

Applied it in the php document and made a little tweaks on padding and width etc.
Now how do I make the form submit.!

Please give detail instruction as Im new to this.!

The form should contain a submit button that when pressed will submit the contents of the form to the page specified as the form action. What are you trying to accomplish and what is the result that you are getting? Submitting a form will not do anything on it's own. You will need to have some server behaviors that make use of the posted values in order to do anything with them.

for Example, contact.php.

When I select the form that I customized, and have to specify the action page.
Do I select contact.php or a different one.! For the posting method it will be POST i assume.

So I need to implement the form.
The use universal email.
Then use server behaviours.

What do I do there on server behaviours?

For a contact page the norm is to have the form submit to itself, so you would set the action to the same page the form is on. You can then add in your Universal Email server behavior and set the redirect to go to the next page, like a thank you page.

When you press the submit button the page will submit to itself and the server validations will run. Once the inputs have been validated the Universal Email server behavior will run and send out the information. At the end of this server behavior the user will be redirected to the page you specify, like the thank you page.

When it comes to crafting the email message you can choose to create a new file for the message or create one with the DW button in the UE interface. If you make your own you would go to Bindings > Form Data to select the form page. With the bindings from the form page available you can drag and drop these onto the page where you would like to see them in the email.

We do not have any documentation that is specific to this scenario, if you are having difficulty getting the Universal Email server behavior setup there is an older interactive tutorial that we have that show how to apply UE and create the email message. The interfaces will look different but the techniques of creating the message and using the bindings in it are the same. Here is a link:

Hmm..

Confusing..

Can you just send me to the right patch..

I first open my php file that I want to have the form in.
Then I load the CSS Menu Creator, And load my pre-build forum that I created.
Once its loaded in the php file that I had opened.
Then I assume I load up Universal email.
Once I have filled out the from and to. I press ok.

After that what do I do.!

There is no patch for this, it just requires you to setup the form then use Universal Email to configure the email to be sent. I have opened a ticket for you on this issue, to update the ticket login and visit your support history.
