Go to Page & Editing eMail Template

Go to Page & Editing eMail Template

I've got a bunch of pages to put the same form on - with the send-from address being different on all of them - so I need a more efficient way of handling the following...

First - Is there no way to define the Go to Page when you first create the form?

When I go to the Form Function tab, and then click "Edit", there's nowhere to tell it what page to go to after submitting the form. I have to finish, then go back in via Server Behaviors.

-----------------

Second - while I'm in that same Edit window, if I uncheck "Create a file for your email", I only have the pencil icon with Edit beside it - no Dreamweaver icon. So again, I have to finish, then go back in (because I'm too dumb to do the plain ole edit thing.)

--------------

And last - if I have gone back in and created an email template via the Dreamweaver interface, can I make that template available for the rest of the pages I'm making that use this form? (They will all be residing in the same folder.) I was wondering if I copied the template file to the webassist/templates folder (and rename it something shorter), if it would show up in the drop-down list and if it would work correctly.

Thanks for your help!

I'm not sure if copying i

No there is not a way to set the got to page, you need to go back into the universal email behavior to set the go to page.

If you select the option to create a file for the email, a file will be created in the webassist/email/templates folder, you can edit the template file directly.

Wow - that was quick :)

No prob re: going back in to set the Go To Page.

Re: the template... I don't really know what I'm seeing when I look at the code - I can probably muddle through it, but it would take a while - so this may be a dumb question...

I have one file that was created and put in the template. I just let it do its thing so I could see if the form worked.

I also have a file that I created while in the Dreamweaver interface. It's located at

webassist/email/waue_template_1.php

Can I copy the contents of that file (while in code view), then paste it & replace the contents of:

webassist/email/templates/blank_2.php

Or will there be some trouble because it's in a different folder...

Or will that even work? (They don't look anything alike starting at line 1!)

No, that will not work.


The template that is created in the templates folder will have logic to loop through each of the form elements to add the Lable and form data in the email, you don't need to edit the code, you can change the look and feel of the email by editing the template in Dreamweaver's design view.
