Google Maps/contact us box

Hi,
I’m a newbie to Freeway Express 5 and there’s a couple of things I’d like to do on my website that I’m not sure about.
First, I want to put a google map on one of the pages, how do I edit the map to show the location I want. I’ve managed to place the map, but need to set the parameters and can’t figure it out.
Secondly, I want to put a ‘contact us’ box on another page, I don’t want to just have a link to click which takes the customer to their mailbox, I actually want a contact us box which takes the enquirers email address etc. How do I set this up?
Also while I’m at it, does anyone know if there is a proper comprehensive manual available for Freeway Express 5 as it would be very useful to me?
Hope someone out there takes pity on me.
- Jodie

Hi, Jodie.

Freeway Moments 10 will tell you how to place the Google map with all its lovely features - you can find it at http://softpress.com/support/freewaymoments.php

The “php Feedback form” page action will sort you out with being sent contact details via a submit button rather than opening an email account. This requires that your host has the necessary php installations.

Hope that helps. I know it works because I have just done both in the last week for a new website, after not using Freeway for at least 3 years!

It is such a fantastic application!

Missed the question about a manual. The pdf that comes with the application download is the same as the actual manual you can purchase (for £10) along with installation discs. It is a natty little manual in a wire bound type pad proportion, which I have found a really nice size and shape to use.

I notice you are an Express user though, so I am not sure how the manual works with that version.

Thanks Jonathan,

I’ve managed to add my map now, and it was so easy, thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
I found a link to download the complete reference manual on the softpress website:
http://www.softpress.com/support/freeway5referenc.php
and you can also order a hard copy if needed.
Still to look at the php feedback form, but feeling more confident already.
Thanks again

Php Feedback form action available here

But I am not 100% sure whether or not it is Express compatible another alternative is to use Forms to Go which is not Free but Dan has done a Screencast for it at http://freewaycast.com/

Any problems let us know.
