The old form builder had could be added to VSD using flash tool, so it automatically added and uploaded all the files.

Are there plans for a similar button to be added to VSD for new html form ?

Only asking as having spent 2.5 hours learning how to upload to my server this morning (missing the obvious as usual) i think it would be easier for us non coders, and especially new users (not using sdrive)

I was guessing that would be the answer,

Even after 3 years using VSD i find anything external a little confusing, last week it was live chat

But forms everyone will probably want to use, so i hope it will be simplified by adding it as a VSD button

Hi Viv I find that using ftp to upload the form file and folder of all support files takes a very long time. I have been uploading as a zip file and using a unzip script to extract. I am waiting to be able to run php files in S_Drive to do things like display results saved in csv/MSQL. You have probably found out that to preview your form you need to place those files in the preview folder. It will not submit obviously.

My forms have previewed every time without having to do anything at all.

I just kept trying to upload the wrong folder, could not work out why it never appeared :( then suddenly the lights went on , and realised it was next level folder down that needed to be published :) bloomin amateurs ;)
