contact form applying to template

I purchased the contact form solution pack and I want to incorporate it into my website. I would like to use web expression. This is what my template is using. The instructions say to use dreamweaver. Are there instructions for using web expression? I would like my contact form to look like or be part of my website.

Did I waste my money?

Can I use this form with web expression? These simple instructions leave a lot to the imagination and only reference Dreamweaver. When I checked out the product before purchasing, I wanted to be sure you didn't need dreamweaver, so I checked the FAQs with the question of Dreamweaver was require - "No. The Contact Form Solution Pack is a set of pre-built pages that can be edited or modified in any WYSIWYG or text editor." My mistake was not seeing if I can specifically use the contact form with my web expression template. If I have to use dreamweaver, I guess I wasted my money?

The contact form can be used in Expresion Web as well as in dreamweaver.


To use your expression web template, you will need to create a new php page based on the template, then copy the contact form code into the template.

There are three blocks of code on the original contactus.php page:

1) The code in the head, from line 1 to the doctype tag.

2) The Form, from the opening form tag to the closing "</form>" tag

3) The spry script. This is the <script> to </script> tag code just before the closing </body> tag.

copy theses three code blocks to the new PHP page you create from your template.

OK, that didn't work. Perhaps I am creating the PHP file incorrectly. I guess this is simple if using dreamweaver. The directions are so vague and only appear to be for dreamweaver.

I uploaded everything to my site and the files that came with the contact form all appear to work:

contactus.php
contact_styled.php

The one I made is a mess:
contact.php

Please help

Hiya em,

Is it your intention to have the form sitting inside the right column as per your existing page at contact.htm?

If so, I have attached a file (contactus.php) which you can either use 'as is' or refer to for where the form code should be placed in your page.

PS Don't forget to change the menu items to point to 'contactus.php' instead of 'contact.htm'
