What are you trying to accomplish with the form? The form is set to post to the same page that the form is on. If you want to upload the information to a database, DataAssist is helpful in accomplishing this. If you want to email it to someone, Universal email will help with this. Form builder is used for designing and building the form, it will not handle what happens after the form is submitted.

For future posts, please make a new thread if the issue is not related to the original issue.

In the Form Editor dialog box, look at the second section down where you style the form... click on edit and then you can control the look and feel of both the overall form width, as well as, being able to customize any of the form's elements to your desire.

To have the form emailed to you, you need some sort of script that will process the form's contents that are stored in the "POST" variable and email it. If you have WebAssist's Universal Email, you will be able to do this rather easily with just a few clicks.

Best regards,


Brian

If you follow the steps provided in the Getting Started Guide in the Universal email support page:
universal-email/

You can skip the part about creating your contact form and go to page 4 where it goes over the Universal Email server behavior.

Ask your server administrator if you're unsure of your smtp settings.
