[Pro] Multiple forms

What is the Procedure when setting up multiple forms?
Must you place the action on the page before any form is created?

Please help.

When you apply the Remove Form Action to the page, you then have to apply your form to an element in the page. So if you have a PHP Feedback Form (page action) instance applied to the page, you need to move that to some element that is a parent of the form elements. Try this, on a new page, so you get the hang of how the parts play together, then you can try to retrofit your existing page.

Draw an HTML box on the page where you want your form to appear, and apply the PHP Feedback Form Action to it. Either double-click “into” that box, so you get a flashing text cursor, and insert the form elements as inline children of the box, or click once on the box and draw your form elements as positioned children on top of that box. (You have to keep clicking on the parent box each time you want to add another item as a child.). Make sure that all of the form elements are children of that one box, either inline or absolute positioned.

Now the form should hang together and submit according to the settings in the parent’s Action preferences.

If you are adding the MailChimp form in a markup item, then that should not conflict either. The Remove Form Action on the page will remove the automatic page-wrapping form that Freeway always generates the moment you draw any form element on the page.

That’s ultimately the underlying problem that you are working around here. A form may not contain another form, and when Freeway sees one form element on the page, it wraps the entire page in a form element, and since Freeway cannot understand anything that you put inside a markup item, it doesn’t know that you are trying to add a second form to the page.

Thanks Walt.
I will try this tricky process. It’s been so long since I had two forms on a page and couldn’t remember how to do this.

Thanks again,

Billy
