Your form must start with the following lines of code:
<form action="http://www.formbuddy.com/cgi-bin/form.pl" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="username" value="USERNAME">
<input type="hidden" name="reqd" value="1,2,3,4">
<input type="hidden" name="url" value="URL">
where USERNAME represents your username and URL represents the url to which your visitors will be
re-directed once they submit your form (do not forget the http:// before the URL).
The third line indicates the required fields in your form.
FormBuddy will make sure that your visitor does not leave those fields blank.
Immediately after the value= part ( of the third line ), you may indicate the field numbers of the required filelds seperarted by commas.
- The field numbers start from 1
- Hidden fields in your form (excluding the first three hidden fields) are also counted as fields
Customising the subject field of the e-mail containing the form data
In case you have opted to receive your form data via e-mail, you can also customise the subject of the e-mail.
Include the following line anywhere in your form (after the first three hidden fields):
<input type="hidden" name="formsubject" value="YOUR_CUSTOM_SUBJECT">
Note that the name of the hidden field formsubject must be in lower case. Replace YOUR_CUSTOM_SUBJECT to any text that you want as the subject of your e-mail.
Suppose in the above form, you wanted the name and e-mail fields to be required, then you would use the
following as the third line in your form code:
<input type="hidden" name="reqd" value="1,2">
If you do not want any field to be required, use the following line:
<input type="hidden" name="reqd" value="0">
