If i am creating a form using freeway pro 5.43 and applying the php feedback form action to the page or a table do I need to enter information in the form setup menu? and if so what needs to go there?
You enter all of the form details in the Action interface. These are different than the form details you would ordinarily enter in Freeway’s form setup dialog, and they are specific to the Action and how it figures out what to do with the form. Anything you enter in form setup will just be ignored by the Action and will not be published into the page.
Also do I need to name the form ,php or .html in the inspector pallet or will freeway generate both?
NO! There is a screencast floating around that urges you to change the filename extension for the page where you’re building the form, but that’s not needed and also makes it impossible for you to preview the form locally (you have to run PHP pages from a server, all you get is a browser full of source code when you look at them locally from a file:/// URL).
Once complete where should the form be stored on the hosting server? in the root public files folder or maybe in the cgi bin folder?
Just upload, through Freeway, the same way you would any other site or page. Freeway (and the Action) will generate and link up all the necessary helper files, and everything will be uploaded to the correct relative location on the server.
