I would really love to be able to connect some kind of discount code functionality.

Basic scope: Match a code against a predefined list created in the desktop form builder. If the user-supplied code matches one in the list, the discount is applied as a multiplier of less than 1. Ideally each code would be associated with it's own discount value.

A dream system would include some kind of functionality to auto generate codes too - possibly to the s-drive, possibly to a local DB. This could allow for a scenario whereby a user completes an order and then receives a single-use discount code toward their next purchase or to refer a friend.

When you mark a field required, there should be a "mark" added to the label so users know the field is required. Typically this is a *. You can do this manually, but unfortunately you can not make the color different then that of the label. For example I would like to see the label black, but the asterisk in red.

Related to a recent problem I encountered.

It would be nice to be able to specify the "Reply-To" field manually. I wanted to use a "noreply" type e-mail address, and in the current setup, I would have had to create an e-mail field. A hidden field didn't seem to work and I wasn't able to put an e-mail magic field on the form and then hide it.

I know I can simply modify the PHP file to make this work, but this might help those that are a bit more scared about those kind of things.

Thanks again for Web Builder, this has become an unexpected gem and life saver!

I have some suggestions for improvement:

1. Leave the <title></title> tag blank in the html page (to avoid duplicate title tags when the form is used on multiple pages - like a Wordpress widget for example).

2. Use absolute referencing for the <script> to avoid 404 errors (e.g. when used in Wordpress widgets)

3. Remove the <title></title> tags from the <script>; including the "Check out my Coffee Cup"...

4. Remove the 40px margin at the top of all forms from default.css file (or at least allow us to specify the margin).

Thanks for producing a great piece of form building software. I like all the functionality. It will be nice now to streamline the code a bit.

Loving Web form builder - it's a fantastic bit of kit :D

Suggestion: tick boxes;

You can now specify how many tick boxes must be clicked as a minimum, but can you add a maximum too? This would stop users clicking two options when only 1 needed, e.g if option 1 is ticked, then option 2 is ticked - option 1 would automatically untick and only option 2 remain ticked.

I know a dropdown list would have the same effect, but sometimes a tick list just fits better, and besides, you may want a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 ticked out of 5, which a drop down could not handle.

Thanks!

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

Hiya AM,

That is what the Radio Buttons do, exactly what you are asking for, only 1 choice can be made with those. Use those instead of check boxes :)

Hm, I thought what he meant was that he wanted several choices, and wanted users to be able to pick more than 1, but not all. Set a minimum and maximum number of choices. Say, have 6 choices and have the user select 2, but only 2. No less, no more. Would be cool if that came about ...

I think conditionals could also handle this. Display the options then hide any left over after so many have been checked.
