I am slowly building a new website. I have added a text link button that, at the moment, says "Contact Me", it then opens the user's email client to send me an email. How do I keep the text formatting of the button (both name and style) but replace the action it takes to open the Web Form I have built, please?

Hi Sheila,
Do you want to open the form on another page or have it popup in a modal? Or unhide it on the current page?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I have set it to pop up and it works perfectly on a blank page - my problem is linking it to the button I have made for "Contact Me" retaining the position and button attributes but replacing my email address with the form

You just need to change the link from your email address to whatever the I'd is of your form or the page that it is on

Hyperlink = #idofthe container

Or

I can use my Contact Me button if I want to open the form on a new page by replacing my email address with the link to the form on my S Drive. I cannot work out how to use my Contact Me button when I want it to pop up on the page when clicked in Site Designer. My website is also hosted by Coffee Cup. I have now spent about three hours trying to get this to work!!

How have you done the pop up as you call it?


Is it a revel component?

We'll now I remember why I only use s drive for testing, not for hosting my websites, I can't get a form inside a reveal so that it appears when the trigger button is hit . Well actually I can and it works fine but it looks terrible and I can't figure out how to make it look great.
I can do a fiddle with pages wherein the form is on a different page, which opens just like a pop up but it's not an overlay of the trigger page.
I have tried manually uploading the pages rather than publishing and that doesn't work either.

I have managed to make one work - sort of - but my problem in getting a button that triggers it. The first pic shows what it looks like in Site Designer, the second what it looks like on the website (the button no longer exists!) and lastly, the pop up that happens when I click on that very faint Contact Me on the website
