Why not use one of the "online" form builders. From the site builder you have two to choose from - Wufoo and FormAssembly. Another good one (my personal preference) is Jotform.

Thanks Boomer.

@Reader - I would also suggest using one of the forms Boomer suggested.

I haven't used Simfatic form builder, so I am unfamiliar with it. If you are able to generate an embed code for the form then you can add the code to an HTML Widget on your page.

I need to get some personal details from people and I don't think that wufoo is encrypted enough to keep these details safe. Any ideas

Hey Reader,
I would agree with Boomer,
Jot form is great builder,it's simple and easy to use.
Here is a bit about data that is submitted through the forms.
Reading this i think your pretty much safe using Jot Form.

Simfatic Forms create forms that are hosted on your own webserver. The online form builders host the form on their servers.
A serious, professional website would need to host the form on their website and keep the form submission data to themselves. Moreover, unlike the online builders, there is no recurring monthly fee.

The program has 2 choices for you when it comes to uploading the completed form and associated files ... you can do it manually, using something like FileZilla ftp client or you can choose to have the Simfatic program do it for you. All you need to do is to provide a few deatils relating to the web address of teh site and the FTP account details.
Once you've had a few goes with it, it becomes very intuitive and easy to use ... and above all, it offers far more user options than any of the 'online' builders that are knocking about.

Ho odintheterrible,

Yola users can't use FTP to upload files. It's not a facility that's available to them for security reasons as I've been told.

Hola Yola !!! LOL
Hmm ... that sort of says a lot about Yola then doesn't it ! ;-) ... sounds like a bit of a half hearted attempt at online strangulation LOL
Beware those places that have unreasonable restrictions ... there's always a reason and most certainly always a down side.

We don't offer FTP because it is not the nature of our service, not because we are trying to impose "unreasonable restrictions." Sites are built with our sitebuilder and files uploaded via the file manager.
