Contact form sol pack problems HELP!


I tried to impliment the Contact form solution pack into my site. I have applied a template to the contact form.....

THe contact form validation fields are not working properly. The contact form extends my template to make all of my graphics in essence 'pulled apart.' The red 'error boxes' extend across the screen from one side to the other, and I think thats what causing the problem. Is there a way to decrease the size of these boxes, or get rid of them completely? Is this server side validation?

I also have universal email and validation toolkit.

I am new to the PHP craziness, and bought this cfsp to do most of the work for me, and am getting frustrated.....

Can someone suggest if I should dstart from scratch designing a form by using dreamweaver and tables, or by CSS, and then implimenting the Universal email and validation toolkit to this form?

I have been messing with the solution pack, and cant get it to work properly. I have a tight deadline on this, so any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks much

Rather than apply the template to the contact form page, Create a new page based on the template.

Then copy the form from the contactus.php page and past it into the main content editable region of you template page. To copy the form go to code view, select all of the code between the <body> and </body> tags.

Next, you need to copy all of the server side code from the contact us page. That will be the code from line 1 to the doctype tag but not including the doctype tag:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

past that code into your page at line 1 just before the doctype tag.

the only other code that will need to copy over is the code between the <title> and </head> tags:

<script src="SpryAssets/SpryValidationTextField.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script src="SpryAssets/SpryValidationTextarea.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
.textfieldServerError {
border: 1px solid #CC3333;
<link href="SpryAssets/SpryValidationTextField.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<link href="SpryAssets/SpryValidationTextarea.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

place that on your page in the same location.

Judging by the error on you page, you did not copy all of the server side code form the original contaus.php page that is in the head before the doctype tag.

open the origianl contactus.php page.

make suree all of the code that is at line 1 up till the doctype tag is copied to your page.
