I like the one click publishing
I like how form results are nice and easy to keep track of on the S drive

But I want to edit the html in my forms.

When you use the manual export - is there any way to make all the changes you want and then bundle all the files back up together and save as a .fb file which you can use the Web Form builder with again?

Not sure if you can do it that way...

But I would think that you could publish to your S Drive account. Then edit the file on-line(?) like you can your site files (if you have them there).

Just one idea until someone with more grey matter comes along with a better answer. :cool:

That was one of the things I thought of.

But I had a look with ftp - and there's a folder for 'site' and there's a folder for 'storage' - but there isn't a folder for forms, which is what I would expect if this was a way to integrate the form into the S drive without the one click publishing in the form builder

I'm not sure how and where FB uploads to, or how it shows when you go to your S-Drive pages. I'll see if I can play around with it a bit this afternoon since there's not much happening today. I'll update if I come across anything that might be useful.;)

You don't have access to the form folder on S-Drive. You might try doing a manual export then save the form to your storage folder and alter the script code that you paste into your page to point to the form files in the storage folder.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Darn it Eric, you know it takes me more than 18 minutes to turn my flux capacitor on...

Thanks for jumping in. I was more than certain you'd have the answer.

If you have the full version (not the 'lite' one), you can export the form to a folder on your computer and tinker with the html and css.

If you really want to give up on the ease of WFB then create the form action in a html page and post the results to a php script to do with what you will. I use WFB as I do not have to consider that, it is done for me. Its a matter of horses for courses. It all depends what you want from it.

If you look at the html created with WFB it is dedicated to sending information to the scripts that support it.
