How to Change Border Type?

Hi, i have customised the simple contact forms CSS to fit in with my websites design for me contact page. Im wondering if you could help me with a couple of issues please?

1. I want to change the border type so its not a surrounding border, i only want a a border similar to that of the compact style contact form (one which is just a line along the top with the text split inbetween the line).

2. Also im wondering if custom buttons will work with the simple contact form im using, and if i import the custom button image will the funtionality of the original submit button still be there?

3. Im also wondering how i link the contact form button to a thank you page without removing any of the submit funtionality?

4. My website is an E-commerce website and as the contacts emailing me will be customers im wondering what to put in the 'FROM' field in the form function category? (As all customers will have unique email addresses).

Thank You

1) For this you would set the border to none, then add a heading with an <hr/> tag under it.

2) the custom buttons should work. If not, you may have to change the triggers for the Server Validation and and Universal Email behaviors to use the Button Subbmit trigger. Go to the Server behaviors panel and doule click the server validation server bahavior to reset the triggers.

3) On the server behaviors panel, double click the universal Email server behavior and set the Go To Page to go to the thank you page.

4) leave the from field as a valid email address from your domain. but click the from button to go to the advanced from screen, here click the lightning bolt next to reply to and select the email address form element.
