Customize the email form

I created an email submission form but I would like to add the capthca security and customize the fields.
Also I want to know if there is a better way to do this. I had my form created and simply wanted to bind those existing form fields and send them in an email. Then when I went to webbassit >create email message and simply created a standard form and attempted to modify it.

That should work for you. You can use your existing form, add captcha and then apply the email server behavior that references your existing form.

What are the steps to apply the email server behavior that references your existing form? I tried to figure that out ie figure out how to bind my form fields so that they would be submitted in the email. That is my problem. I don't understand the procedure. Thanks,

If you just apply the Send Email Message server behavior and use one of our default templates the entire form will be added to the email body automatically.

Please attach a copy of the page you are working on so I can see the code. I can't debug it by looking at it live since the code is all server side.

Your form action is set to: action="php/contactWO.php"

it should just be: action="contactWO.php"

That will cause your form to submit and email to send. However you have a javascript library that is causing your form to submit using AJAX, so the redirect and success page isn't displaying. You will have to look into the documentation for the library you are using for how to cause it to go to another success page after the form submits.
