Well, I thought this would be a lot more intuitive. I read the following article:

https://nicepage.com/doc/article/25066

Going to the implied simplicity of creating a website in Nicepage, I have stumbled into a trap that I am going to need some help getting out of. Having a contact form is imperative. Entered all the fields, did all the layout, just jumped over to enter my desired email address and surprise, it isn't that simple. Damn.

So, looking for the latest. What can I do? I have a gmail.com address, but not thrilled about a script that requires me to include the password in the code. My user might change his password and not know his website contact is reliant on that password.

What's my simplest solution? Even if I have some simple code, I just need to know how to implement it. Help!!

I don't need anything fancy, just an email to me telling me someone is reaching out. I guess I can only ask that in so many ways. Please offer more than a link to some vague solution(s). I skimmed a couple articles and to decipher them would require a lot of work, but I could probably get there, but if there is something simple, I'd rather chase that path.

This is just a simple html site, so no Joomla or Wordpress to rely on their email systems. Have I said Help yet?

Thanks, hoping for a very useful answer!

Hi,

Email sending is not such a simple task if you're going to create a simple HTML website. There are many nuances, and the specific solution depends on your needs. It is difficult to suggest something specific.
But in any case, if you plan to send an email through the google account, you should use a similar solution with the email and password in the code. This could be a separate action script file or server configuration file. But your server will not be able to send emails through the google account without these settings. Email sending is a server-side task. The Form itself or a theme or website is not responsible for this. That's why we do not offer a built-in solution. There are a lot o ready builders and services like Mail Chimp that can be used to send an email.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.

This seems to be a weak link in Nice Page designer! What do you recommend as the easiest was to set up a contact form. IMHO this should all be included in Nicepage, and most importantly with detailed instructions on at least one SECURE method to make this as easy to set up as possible.

For instance can we use MailChimps free version or would Nicepage require a paid Mail Chimp account.

Also in case people don't want MailChimp what is the easiest way. How would you set it up if you were building a Website?

Hi,

The problem is that email sending is a server-side task when Nicepage is responsible for front-end only. HTML Form itself cannot send emails. And there is no one most used and perfect solution to send emails used on most of the websites. The exact code (server script which sends emails) depends on the needs of the specific website owner.

For instance can we use MailChimps free version or would Nicepage require a paid Mail Chimp account.

The free version should be enough.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
