Help a newbie with setting up a Contact Form in DW CS3!

How do I set-up my Contact Form to forward messages to a designated email account using Dreamweaver CS3?

I read the Form section in the missing manual, but am still stumped. The simplest way to do this would be appreciated.

The form itself works fine, I just need to forward the messages to a designated email address. I appreciate all your input.

Thanks.

  • The simplest way to build links for users to email a specific email address is using an email link. Check out Section 5.3, Adding an Email Link, for more details on this. Basically, you need a link that looks like this: mailto:plants@cosmofarmer.com

    Here's a quick tutorial for adding an email link to a form.

    As this tutorial mentions, email isn't the best way to deal with a form, though it is the simplest to set up. You may want to take a look at Section 11.1.1, The Code Backstage, for a discussion of how more complex form processing works.

    Also, you may be interested in taking a look at Creating a Website: The Missing Manual. Try searching for "Mailing a form" and "reliable forms" in the book preview.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for writing us,
