You can set up a form very simply by using the PHP easiForm actions,
there is even a Freeway tutorial to walk you through it, in fact it is
so simple 99% of it is just applying the actions. The only thing out
of Freeway you will need to do is to upload an ‘ioncube’ folder to
your home directory.
1# Upload the ‘ioncube’ folder that comes with the ‘PHP easiForm’
action suite download option 1# from the download page"
You will need to do this with an ftp client such as Fetch or Transmit.
2# OK, onto the dummy-proof stuff, make a thanks page and give it a
name of thanks.html
3# Make a new page in Freeway for your form if not done so already and
add a ‘PHP easiForm’ page action to it, now name the form contact.php
(or something else but ending in .php).
4# Add the various elements you need on the form plus a submit button
5# Name all the elements, i’e’. name, email, message (Just name then,
PHP easiForm will do the rest).
6# Add a ‘PHP easiForm Elements’ item action to each of your forms
elements including the submit button.
7# Add an HTML item just above the form elements and the with it
selected add a ‘PHP easiForm Errors’ item action to it, add a style to
it while it is selected and this way the error text that is shown when
a user makes a mistake will have that style.
8# Select the page and in the ‘Actions’ window (Open this if not open)
enter the e-mail address the form is to be delivered to, in the
‘Required fields’ field of the action window type the required element
names that you want the user to fill in before the form can be
sent,for example. name,email,message
9# In the same ‘Actions’ window select the thanks page you created
from the ‘Success page’ menu
9# Publish and use Freeway to upload to your server.
10# Open the form URL in a browser and test your form.
If you select ‘Advanced’ in the actions window for the ‘PHP easiForm’
action then you will have their options such as, have a confirm email
sent to the user also, block emails with certain words etc. etc.
If all is working to your liking then when you purchase the license
you will be sent a license file that you upload to any folders on your
server where you have forms created with easiForm and the demo alert
will be removed.

I don’t know if you have followed it but if you have maybe you can
contact me and tell me where you are having problems.
Contact me from the contact page on the above site if you get stuck
and I will guide you through.
Hope this helps

I have waded through so many threads on creating a contact form and
I am further from any sense of clarity. I have a site started with
siteground using FW Pro 4 and I’d like to put a contact form on the
site. Currently, the site is getting spammed on its current host
with just an Info@… email address. Maybe when the site is
changed, that won’t be an issue (??). This is the reason for the
contact form - hoping it would be a better control on spam as well
as looking a bit nicer on the website instead of the email contact.
