CSS form builder files missing?

CSS form builder files missing?

Hello
I am using CSS Form Builder to create a simple contact form.

In my test I am getting at the end of the email the following items that are not required.

"Hidden Field:
SimpleContact submit: Contact me
Additional Notes: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec eget tellus sed justo rhoncus posuere id sit amet arcu. Morbi pretium, enim faucibus facilisis hendrerit, elit. Morbi quis sodales ligula. Pellentesque elementum faucibus elementum. etc"

If I select the page Form then I can select CSS Form Edit Form
When I select this I get three options.
Form Function looks like it should give some help but when I select any of the links in Form Funtion I get File not Found.
I am attaching an image of this

Am I some files missing
and how can I remove the above fields please?
Many thanks
for any help you can give.
Regards

John

The form builder wizard should not be used for editing the email settings.

to edit the email body, you need to edit the email template file. see the following tutorial for details:
http://www.webassist.com/tutorials/Customize-form-elements-in-your-form-generated-emails

The form functions tab is really only relevant when Creating the for and should not be used on editing the form.

to edit the form functions, you would edit the server behaviors for either Universal Email or file upload by opening the server behaviors tab and double-clicking the corresponding server behavior.

Thanks Jason
At the top of the email page, copy the line:
$remove[] = "y";
Paste a copy of the line under the it.

I am confused as to what is "the it"?

it should be:

At the top of the email page, copy the line:
$remove[] = "y";
Paste a copy of the line under it.


so that in the end you have the line repeated :
$remove[] = "y";
$remove[] = "y";

Hi Jason,

I included the extra code as
<?php
$remove = array();
$remove[] = "";
$remove[] = "x";
$remove[] = "y";
$remove[] = "y";

But I am still getting Hidden Field and SimpleContact submit showing at the foot of the page.

you didn't follow the rest of the steps which are to inspect the form element you don't want to have appear in the email, it looks like in the case the name is:
Hidden_Field

and
SimpleContact_submit

and then to edit the line that was a added:
$remove[] = "y";

and replace y with the form field name, in you case, you have 2 form files, so you need to do this twice:
$remove[] = "Hidden_Field";
$remove[] = "SimpleContact_submit";
