form empties but no indication it was sent

The form is located here form.php

1. I do not know a way to make it go to a success page in form builder. I see nothing as a selection.
2. reading the instructions here "Updating HTML Editor functionality: From Dreamweaver's Design View, (Where is this) select the HTML Editor instance(?). Choose the Edit option from the Properties Inspector to launch the HTML Editor interface." Been using DW since Macromedia but never heard of where that is. I do not see the form at all unless I go to live view. this is my code. , well was going to include it but error said it was too long

1) Either set the forms action page to go to the success page. Or open the server behaviors panel, double click the Universal Email server behavior and set the Go To Page.

2) In Dreamweaver, The main view is Design View, you should have buttons to allow you to select Code View Or Design View.

to open the property inspector, go to Window -> Property Inspector.

It doesn't look like you have added an HTML Editor instance to your form, though, so you wont be able to edit one.

To attach a copy of your page, compress it to a zip archive and attach the zip file.

starting to get it

form2.php

I was able to send the eMail but it came thru empty! only could see the addresses. I did not have an eMail file default because previous eMail looked like garbage. All I need are the fields to be sent as the form is filled in. There was an additional note at the bottom with gibberesh. I never chose that field anywhere.

I think this could be simplified. To be added to mi scheberach list please provide name of person to be listed. To be added to yahrzeit list I need name of deceased, english date of death and relationship to member (John Doe father of Mary Doe February 29, 2011). All requests to be e-mailed to essnern@etcmail.com. Thanks...ne

Hey that worked well. I may actually be gettin it!

Two More Questions, 1. If I want to center the form on the page where do I put the align tag, any good ideas?, mine don't work.

2. Placing the form on an existing page seems like it could be tricky because of the HTML and php mixing. Dreamweaver misplaced the html tags when I clicked "finished" so I have to maneuver them so I could actually see the form and edit it. (I did place my cursor after the body tag before finishing) Thanks for help. I am not a PHP programmer

1) place the form in a div that has the width set to the exact width of the form, and use margin:0 auto;

if you need more assistance, send a link where i can see the page.

2) shouldn't be a problem adding the form to and existing page, place your cursor on the page where you want the form to go, then run the form builder wizard, the form will be inserted into the page at the cursor location.

great

Got all that, one more issue seems to have reared its ugly head.

form2.php

The date picker has a *required* validation and I do not want it a required field. It is only appropriate in some cases. It is unchecked in the build process but continues to appear in final product.

find the following line near the bottom of the page:

php:
var Date_of_Death_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Date_of_Death_Spry", "date", { format:'mm/dd/yyyy' , validateOn:["blur"]});




and change it to:

php:
var Date_of_Death_Spry = new Spry.Widget.ValidationTextField("Date_of_Death_Spry", "date", { format:'mm/dd/yyyy' , validateOn:["blur"], isRequired:false});
