What do all the form elements mean?
This is an area where the elements of your form are contained. All form elements MUST be contained within a form area. You can have multiple ‘form areas’ on a page. For example, you could have two parts to a form; the first part could be about your customers contact details, and the second part could be about their requirements, and so on. You can change the name of your ‘form area’ by clicking on it’s title, editing the text and hitting the return button on your computer keyboard.
A ‘text field’ is a box that customers can insert information into. For example, you can create a ‘text field’ called ‘Name:’ into which customers can then enter their name. You can change the name of that ‘text field’ (eg. you could change it from ‘Name:’ to ‘Age:’) and also add a description to that ‘text field’. You can add as many ‘text fields’ as you want to your form.
A ‘text area’ is like a ‘text field’ but larger. For example, you could create an ‘text area’ called ‘Message:’ where customers can write several lines for a message. You can also add a description to that ‘text area’. You can add as many ‘text areas’ as you want to your form.
Drop down box
A ‘drop down box’ allows customers to select various options from a drop down list. You can add or remove your own options which can be selected from the list by clicking on ‘Add’, or ‘Remove’. You can add as many ‘drop down boxes’ as you want to your form.
A ‘check box’ is a box that customers can tick or leave blank. For example, you could create a ‘check box’ called ‘Tick this box if you like fruit:’. You can add as many ‘check boxes’ as you want to your form.
When you are happy with your form, click on the ‘Save contact form’ button.
To edit or delete a form, click on the ‘Edit’ or ‘Delete’ buttons next to them in the main ‘contact form’ menu.
Once you have saved your form, you will then need to add it to one of your web pages by clicking on the ‘Apply your form’ tab.
