How to export into VSD

So I was using the old "classic" form builder and then I won the Web Form Builder on the Easter Egg Hunt!!

The old one used to give me about 5 files to export into my site folder. This new one has a whole folder that it gives me. I exported the entire folder into the site folder. Is that right? Or do I need to take out certain files and put those directly into the site folder (where all my html pages are located)?

I tried putting the folder in there and looked at the preview through VSD (using Google Chrome) and it's just blank. It gives me Error 6: the file or directory could not be found

What am I doing wrong?

:(

If you don't need a local preview then,
Take all the files inside the myformname_exported and ftp them to the root of your site.
Now add the script that the form builder provides and place that into a html box in VSD.
If you need a local preview on your pc post back.:)

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I do need to preview it.....as I'm redoing the whole site and need to know how it will look with the new placement. Thanks!

You'll need to alter your form script in the areas I have in bold.:)


<script type="text/javascript">document.write(unescape("%3Ciframe src=\"http://mydomain.com/myformname/myformname.html\" width=\"602\" height=\"373\"allowtransparency=\"true\" scrolling=\"no\" frameborder=\"0\"%3E&lt;a href=\"http://mydomain.com/myformname.php\" title=\"myformname\"&gt;Check out my CoffeeCup Form&lt;/a&gt;%3C/iframe%3E"));</script>
<noscript>
<iframe width="602" height="373" style="border:none; background:transparent; overflow:hidden;"
src="http://mydomain.com/myformname/myformname.html">
&lt;a href="http://mydomain.com/myformname.php" title="myformname"&gt;Check out my CoffeeCup
Form&lt;/a&gt;
</iframe>
</noscript>


This will allow local preview without adding all the files to your actual VSD site.
Ftp the form files to the root of your site then alter your script to be absolute as I did in the example above.

Hmmmm, first of all, my code is much longer than yours. But I changed it all, and this is what it says now:

404: Page not found
This error is generated when there was no web page with the name you specified at the web site.

Troubleshooting suggestions:

Ensure the page you are linking to exists in the correct folder.

Check your file name for case sensitivity . Index.htm is not the same as index.htm!

Temporarily disable any rewrite rules by renaming your .htaccess file if it exists.

Ok, not that website literate....where do I find the script? You mean the code that I originally copied from the form builder?

Woa, now that I'm looking at it. It looks like it's in there twice, one with the original size I had it, and one with the updated size (probably why I also see two blank forms on the preview!). LOL.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
