I have created a contact form and exported it to HTML. When uploaded the submit button doesn't do anything. https://www.isdconsultants.com/Contact.html

I've tried this on both Chrome and Fire Fox.

Hi Nick,

Please make sure that you have added a link to the script file that will send the form:

SORRY! You provide a form but not the means to send it! That is absolutely ridiculous. If it needs to be pointed to a php file to send it then a tested file should be part of the package. On one hand, you say you don't allow access to the text editor because you don't want people to mess it up then, on the other hand, these users who can't be allowed access have to go and source a php file to submit emails. Unbelievable. I really wanted to like Nicepage but with the missing functionality and things like this I'm finding it hard to like.

"The form action script is a .php file which can be created manually or downloaded from the Internet. Please note that if you download any examples of the form action scripts from the Internet you will need to adjust this file manually so it can work with the Nicepage form fields." - OK give us a clue - what does this mean "adjust this file manually so it can work with the Nicepage form fields".

I made the sent to : https://www.isdconsultants.com/sendMail.php

I have created a simple php file sendMail.php that contains
<?php echo?><pre>"; print_r($_POST) ; echo "</pre>"; ?>

In an attempt to identify the data being sent so I can move on to actually sending a mail. When I hit the submit button I get the "Unable to send your message. Please fix errors then try again."

You need to provide either a working sendMail.php file or better documentation on how to create it.

NOT HAPPY.

Hi Nick,

We do not provide a send email script as there are a lot of things that you may want to change to march your needs. If you know how the forms work it should not be a problem creating a script or finding a ready script where you need to adjust the field identifiers to match the Nicepage Form fields. If you find the script which works with the similar form and configure the server to send emails, then this script will work with Nicepage form too. There are a lot of ready solutions on the Internet.

Olivia - not an answer there is no documentation about the form. "if you know how the form works" I don't and there is no documentation. "You need to adjust the field identifiers to match the Nice page Form fields." but what are they called. At the moment this is less than helpful. This is supposed to be a simple drag and drop systems no something that requires the user to be a php coder - get it sorted.

I have just taken a php file from a site built with a different product where the data from the form gets posted as an email. Changed one field name to "message" instead of "comment" to match the Newpage field name and still get "Unable to send your message. Please fix errors then try again."

Under "Form - Send to" change "stay on same page" to "Go to URL" maybe that will help.

Nick,

Nicepage is a theme and content designer. The form submitting is a complex server-side task. It is not related to page design and usually costs additional funds. We do not offer own script because there could be a lot customizing requirements related to the server side.

The form sending is implemented on Nicepage Online service as a part of the service.

Is that it Olivia ? No more development for a contact form that works from within Nicepage ?
Your facebook promotions like Many of Nicepage users already have simplified their website building process! Everything is very natural, everything is very easy! are a bit ambitious. I'm at the stage where I have to decide between blocs3 and nicepage to be my website design platform. Blocs already have animations, a working form, drag and drop and a well structured file saving system allowing me to toggle between iMac and MacBook - all within the software but I'm still being drawn towards nicepage. I'm beginning to need some reassurance that the nicepage developers will listen to their users and provide solutions rather than a few new templates that can be showcased on facebook.

Hi guys,

Nicepage for Wordpress uses Contact Form 7 plugin to submit forms, in Joomla Nicepage uses Joomla to send email.
Unfortunately, there is no built-in script to submit forms in static html websites. But we added your requests to our wish list.

I will add my two cents here. In order to send a form, it is up to your hosting company most of the time. For instance, GoDaddy had a PHP action gdform.php if I recall correctly. Hosting companies are kinda particular about what scripts you run on their equipment. So to expect Nicepage to provide a script for the form action is simply beyond what they can do. If you are looking at the site as HTML locally, i.e. you just select preview in a browser then the form most definitely will not work. You would have to have a script on your computer that you could call to submit the form. If you have published it on your hosting site, then you need to contact the hosting company to find out what rules and scripts they suggest to use. If you are doing HTML you might consider using a program like http://www.bebosoft.com/products/formstogo/overview/ You can create your form and the script. Actually, you can import the HTML page with the form on it that Nicepage creates into Forms 2 Go and generate a script. Hope this helps. You have to understand also that Nicepage is still in development and testing mode. So have a little patience with the folks.

Thanks ljordan2 for your input and support of nicepage. Keeping things really simple I can design a contact page in rapidweaver or blocs 3, upload it to a server (godaddy for example) and it works without any scripting from me or research on my part. - see https://www.hehuk.co.uk/contact-us.html for example - captcha as well, designed completely using blocs3. It feels like we've exhausted this topic and I know there are workarounds. Credit to nicepage for what they've already done. That's why I'm staying with nicepage for a while longer but not committing to the ultimate package yet, even during the Christmas sale. Response to the end-users comments is key to their success but Beta can't go on forever.

Thanks, Adrian,

I wasn't familiar with blocs3, just downloaded the trial and will play around with it. I have and use Rapidweaver.
My main interest in Nicepage is to create Wordpress themes.

The ideal combination would be the features of blocs3 but the ease and flexibility of nicepage.
