Contact Form Object

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

When you are browsing the Internet, you often come across pages which display a form where you are asked for personal details. These forms can be a means of contact, to ask you to register to receive information, to access Members' Areas, or simply for surveys or market research.

Whatever the purpose, with WebSite X5 you can create a contact form very easily. You can specify the fields you want in it, decide on the page layout and graphic appearance and, most importantly, stipulate how submitted data is to be collected and who receives it.

The commands for creating a contact Form object are organized in the following sections:


When you preview your website, a message reminds you that e-mails with submitted data will not be sent. The Send E-mail Form feature only works fully when the website has been published on the Server.

For the Contact Form to work properly, the Server where your website will be published on needs to support the PHP programming language and the command MAIL needs to be active.

If you use WebSite X5 Hosting yo export your website, you can be sure that everything is correctly configured.

If, on the other hand, you go for another Provider, you can rely on some diagnostic information about the server on the WebSite Test section of the Online Control Panel. In case of issues with the sending of the e-mails, the server might nit have been configured in a standard way. In such cases you can try to sent another script and another method to send the e-mails using the settings available in the Server Settings window. For more information, please contact your Webspace Provider.
