[Pro] using forms within the CSS box model

Hi

I’ve recently learnt how to create sites using the CSS box model - thanks to Walter and this post:
http://www.freewaytalk.net/thread/view/50624#m_50626

I’ve created several sites this way now where the header and footer can span the full width of the browser and the central section stays fixed width and central, I’m now struggling to add a form to one of these sites, I had a go with PHP easyform which is really simple if you just lay out the elements on the page but as soon as I paste them inside the html boxes of the site it doesn’t recognise the form fields anymore…

So I think what I’m trying to say is: how do I go about creating a form as inline html?

many thanks for reading

Robin

Hi Robin,

can you send me the Freeway file of your project (No resources etc.
just the FW file) and I will see if I can get a look at this sometime
today or at latest in the morning.

I just tried to do what I think you are saying and the elements are
being named as they should by the action, are you sure your form
elements are all on the same layer?.

Just to close this, the solution to this was as suggested by Walter on thread:
http://freewaytalk.net/thread/view/57975

adding a form element above the page forced the form tag to be drawn… I am sure softpress have picked this up now and will hopefully do something about it.
