Hi Vinod

Unfortunately this is not possible. For a site to run on our servers it needs to be created with our software.

I am sorry that I can't be of more help with this request.

Hi Monique,

Ok. Even if I were developing site in your environment how can I develop forms for my customers? I do not find (or am I missing) form developer widget or function? Pl enlighten

Hi Vinod,

In order to put a form on your site click on the widget toolbox at the righthand side of the screen, and then click on the "Forms" folder.

We have integrated with two great services that allow you to create custom forms for your site: Wufoo and Form Assembly. Both services offer free and paid plans, so you can select the one that is right for you.

These are the steps for adding a form:

1. When you drop a form widget on your page, a dialogue box will open up. Click on the link in the bottom right hand corner and you will be taken to the form service.
2. Sign up for an account and create your form.
3. When you are done click "Get Code."
4. Copy the HTML code (use Ctrl-C or highlight with cursor > right-click > copy) and paste it into the SynthaSite dialogue box that opened when you dropped the widget (use Ctrl-V or right-click > paste to paste the code)

That's it, you will have your own custom form on your site and your responses will be managed in your Wufoo or Form Assembly account.

You can edit your settings on Wufoo or Form Assembly so that the information completed on your form is emailed to you, or you can visit your account to get the information on any forms completed.

Be sure to include links on your site at relevant points that will take your visitors to your contact form page (we have a link editor that allows you to do this). You can then either reply to them personally or post their comments directly onto your site.
