Have a form and want to add it to Shopping Cart Creator, no problem, we're here to help.

Please note that the form will not submit with your cart, it will be a separate entity, so you may want to have something in the form to identify the user such as a name, address that you can cross reference with the purchase order from your payment provider.

Step 1:

Create your form and determine where the form will be hosted,

If you wish to host the form with S-Drive, you will want to follow Option 1 of this article, http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/how-to-add-a-form-to-your-page/

if you wish to upload the form and cart to your own server, you will follow Option 2

if you wish to host the shop on S-Drive then the form on your own server, you will use Option 3.

Step 2: 

Once you have decided how you will handle the form processing, you can add it to your cart. To do this, you can add the form in two places.

1. The Product Details section

2. Direct on one of your static pages i.e. Home, Cart, or any of the 5 additional pages you want to create.

So let's get started with adding the form to your item details section.

Placing your Form in the Item Details Section.

Simply double click an item to access the items details tab, then paste the provided code from Form Builder within the html window.

Now, depending on how you decided to handle the hosting portion, you will either need to:

S-Drive - Do nothing else, the form will already be hosted and processed on S-Drive servers.

Your own host - Manually upload the files within the exported folder to your server and place them in the same folder as your shop.

Third party host - Upload to the third party host and ensure that you have altered the references to the .html and .php files properly.

Placing your form within a static page.

This one will be just the same but if you wish to position the form in a specific location, you may have to get your hands dirty.

Select the "Pages" tool and choose the page you wish to use from the tab selection. Next, select the html tool and paste the code within the html window.

Notice the [[[  ]]] around the markup, this tells Shopping Cart Creator to treat this as code and not text when it is viewed through a browser. Now, you can either leave the markup where it is or position it using custom CSS or a crude and easy way would be to separate paragraphs, brackets and return lines by entering [[[br]]] for a single return and [[[br]]][[[br]]] for double.

The best solution would be to wrap the object(s) within a div and use CSS to position them properly on the page as defined in this article: http://webdesign.about.com/od/htmltags/qt/tipdivtag.htm

Now, depending on how you decided to handle the hosting portion, you will either need to:

S-Drive - Do nothing else, the form will already be hosted and processed on S-Drive servers.

Your own host - Manually upload the files within the exported folder to your server and place them in the same folder as your shop.

Third party host - Upload to the third party host and ensure that you have altered the references to the .html and .php files properly.
