Getting Started tutorial out of date - help!

I just purchased Data Bridge V2 and tried the first "Getting Started" tutorial about building a simple contact form. When I get to the part that says "Next, uncheck Manage email body file checkbox" I can't proceed because there is no checkbox. I don't see how to complete the process without it. I tried linking to a blank php page, but then there was still no way to proceed with the tutorial because there's no way to finish adding the message. Is there a guide that has been updated for this latest version? I am finding it very difficult to do the most basic things because nothing matches what appears in the tutorials.

That checkbox is not used anymore. You have to manage the email body through a file now. If you just ignore that step and continue with everything else other than building the email body, then the email body file will be created and opened at the end and you can build the email body in the created file after.

Thank you for the prompt response. I've been working with the server behaviors and they are very similar to how I remember the old built-in Dreamweaver behaviors functioning. I am very glad I found these extensions as they are allowing me to work in a familiar way after several years of not doing the development work for my designs.

Thank you. We designed them that way to make the transition to mysqli as easy as possible. They are similar, but often more powerful versions.
