    Default Editing layout of text in a form??

    Im trying to replicate this page
    http://www.klemich.com.au/html/best_offer_form.html

    This is a test page which is close but not close enough
    http://www.klemich.com.au/html/best_offer_form.php

    Ive had to put the text for the check box in a multiline form box, which
    means no bullets etc which is annoying, and I dont see a way of having a
    bolded heading, as seen in the page Im trying to copy ie: "details of
    offer."

    Any way I can do either of these things?

    The best way to achieve this graphically is to use the Form Tools instead of
    the NOF Email Page component I think you're using.

    You can then lay it all out exactly as you wish with standard text areas for
    your conditions section.

    Yes you are right. I kind of liked the new component though...
    I have no end of troubles doing it manually...

    What sort of troubles? Maybe I can help, as manually is how I do all my
    forms in NOF.

    Components are good to a degree of course, but you do run into issues as you
    did, so that is why I do them manually so I have complete creative control.

    Heh where to start, from 500 errors to domainname.com/scripts/formailer.php
    404's etc I find the component quite good, just a bit more control over
    appearance would be nice.
    Can I have 2 component forms within a table thats designnated as a form and
    the one submit button will send the data from both forms? If so I can put
    the info I want in between the component forms in the table.

    Sorry for late reply, I've been away.

    You can simply place form items anywhere on the page and place text or
    graphics in between. It does not need two forms as such. It doesn't have
    to flow logically. Again, this is the advantage of creating it yourself
    with separate items instead of the component. Use a single "Submit" button.

    When you create the forms yourself, you also have total control over the
    CSS, so you can change the colours, outlines of the form etc. and also the
    font which people see when they type in their information.

    When you create the form, ensure if you don't need to upload files or create
    a CSV file that you empty out the information that's in those sections.
    That simple thing seems to cause people the most problems and error codes.
    In NOF10 it now has wizards for creating the data files and folders
    correctly if you require them anyway.

    If you create the forms and have problems using what I've said, post it up
    and I will check out the XML file for you.
