  1. How to put generated form to my site?
  2. After you use form generator to create your php form, you can download a ready-to-use form in myform.zip file. All the php files are under folder yyyymmdd-xxx in the zip file. Once you unzip it, you can rename the folder as you want. Then use FTP program to upload the folder to your website. Now your mail form is ready to use.
  3. How to embed the generated mail form to my html page?
  4. You can use <iframe> to embed your web form to your html page or blog page. Here is a <iframe> example. For short, you can use the following code:

    <iframe src="http://www.yoursite.com/path/form.php" style="width:480px;height:600px;border:none;"></iframe>

    Please set the src, width and height as need.
  5. I have created multiple forms, how do I put them to my site?
  6. Put all the files of each form in its own folder.
  7. Can I rename the folder and the php files?
  8. You can reanem the yyyymmdd-xxx folder name as you want. You can also rename the form.php as you wish. However, please don't rename the form.lib.php and admin.php.
  9. Do I need GD library installed on my site to use security image feature?
  10. No. There are lots of built-in security images already. If your web server has GD library, it will use it to generate CAPTCHA security image.
  11. I can't receive any email, why?
  12. Try the options of "Can't receive emails" when you create form.
    1. try to use a different email address, like free email address from Gmail and Yahoo
    2. Select option "No sender header"
    3. put your email address of your website as sender's email address - especially if the form runs on Windows platform. For example, if the form runs on your webste at http://www.yoursite.com/form.php, then the email should be you@yoursite.com
    4. use SMTP email server if need - for example, you runs website at home on your Windows XP, then the SMTP should be outgoing email server of your Internet provider (ADSL or Cable).
    If none of them works for your, then probably you're out of luck.

    The reason you can't receive email is complicated, it usually is not the script's problem. If you can see the email traffic logs, that means the script has no problem.

    Many providers of email services, intranet or internet, are relying on Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records to authenticate emails. You can also ask your web hosting company technical support team for help.

  13. The sender can't receive auto response email, why?
  14. If you can receive email, but not the form sender. There is no problem on the script. See above answer for more information.
  15. I can not open the myform.zip file, why?
  16. Please use a different unzip program to open it, especially on Mac platform.
  17. I'm concerning about security and privacy, is there any data will be sent to you?
  18. Security and privacy is my concern too. That's why the form comes with features like anti email spider (emil address harvesting), email header filtering, and scrity image.

    Once you download the form and put it to your website, there is nothing will be sent to me. You might want to look at the source code to answer your question. In my opinion, the form you created is very safe to use. :)
  19. What is the link to the form admin panel?
  20. The admin panel (admin.php) is under the same folder of your form. For example: if your form link is http://www.yoursite.com/contact/form.php, then the admin panel link is http://www.yoursite.com/contact/admin.php.
  21. What is the username and password to login form admin panel?
  22. The default username and password of your form admin panel is your email address and the form ID. For example : You use me@test.com to create your form, and the folder name in the myform.zip is 20081007-7f3d. So your username is me@test.com and the password is 20081007-7f3d. You can also click the "I forgot my password" link on login window to send the account information to you.
  23. Can I change password for the form admin panel?
  24. Yes. Use Notepad or other text editor to open the admin.php file, then change the password you want. Don't forget to upload the updated file to your web server.
  25. Where can I get my form data in Excel file?
  26. After you login the form admin panel, you will see the download link of your form data in Excel file. The CSV file also contains your form fields as column headers.
  27. I want to add new fields to my existing form. How can I edit my form?
  28. Login the form admin panel, click the "Edit Form" button.
  29. Can I make multiple pages form?
  30. Sorry, not yet.
  31. Can I hotlink the form here?
  32. No. Do not hotlink the form you created here. All the forms will be deleted automatically after 3 days.
  33. Is it free to use the form created here?
