Hello,

I took a look at the form on your Registration Form page, can you tell me what happens when someone fills out the form, does the button not work, does it not come to your email? Please let us know and we can take a closer look.

The form needs to be hosted somewhere for the submissions to be directed to your email. Was this a FormAssembly form?

Well I looked at the forms code and it is submitting but to the forms action which is CDonts.asp It looks like this is a kind of form that Yola doesn't support. Because it looks like it is requesting an action from the server when you send. I may be wrong on this part so I would wait for a Yola rep.

Hi there Thomas,

Who is your form hosted with? It needs to be hosted with someone for you to get the responses sent to you via email.

If you look in the "Forms" folder in the Site Builder you will see that Yola has integrated with two easy to use form services, Wufoo and Form Assembly.

JotForm is another great service that many people on this forum have recomended. You can read more about it here: http://getsatisfaction.com/yola/topic...

If you can't get your current form to work, you can easily build one that submits replies using one of these services.

Let us know the answer to Jeremy's question and we will guide you further as to your next steps.

You have made huge progress on your site in a very short space of time, due to all your hard work. Hopefully we can help you over this final hurdle.
