Hi All,

I have a registered version of FormBuilder Lite and have been creating an order form for my clients to order clothes from. Operating system is Windows/XP. FormBuilder Lite version 1 build 2968.

I searched the community forum and questions but still need help.

For more detailed info on the products I am offering on my form, I would like my clients to be able to click on a link that takes them to another company's website that has size specifications/product details. How do I input this other website url onto my form?

Thanks,
Cindy

I would think you could edit the html after the form is made to accomplish this.:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.

Thanks, I'll take a look around your website. As a temporary fix/work around, I put in another header at the very top of my form with a special logo with text telling folks to click it to get the specifications because you are able to put in the url behind it.

I'll check a form I have to see how easy it is.;)

Any progress on this problem?

I want to put a link to terms and conditions at the bottom of the form, but I don't see any way where you can just put code in like <a href="website/terms and conditions"> Terms and Conditions </a> type of thing.

I can add an image and hyperlink that - but I don't want to hide it behind an image, I want to hide it behind words.

To me this question sounds stupid - but anyway - how do you edit the html to work with the formbuilder?

In the formbuilder and on my PC I can see .fb files but not html
Once they're published I can obviously just get the html - but then how does that work with the formbuilder?

I really like the convenience of the one click publishing, so I'm hoping the answer isn't anything to do with manually exporting and hosting the form yourself

Yes, This is a manual export form method. It's not hard to do, especially if your form is small as there's not that much code to look through and you have the text that you want linked already on the form to look for.:) So to accomplish this export your form to manual server then look in the folder that the form builder exports. It should be the name of your form then inside that folder should be another folder of the same name. Then in that folder will be the html page that is the same name of your form and that's what you want to edit. If you need more instructions let us know.:)
