4. Create a News Item and Embed the Form HTML
Below we are outlining the steps for adding an email form to a new news item. Note that you could use a very similar process to add an email form to an already existing item.

e. Open a new browsing window and navigate to myContactForm.com. Login to myContactForm.com
f. Click the Xtras Button next to your form
g. Click the Hosted Forms button
h. Click the Enable Hosted Form button
i. Select and Copy (CTRL+C or Right Click and Select Copy) the URL of the hosted form that is provided.
j. Go back to the open PHP Nuke browser window. Enter into the Edit HTML window the following code:
Replace "myhostedformurl" with the URL of the hosted form that you copied above.
d. Click the Update button
4. Test Your Form
Now that the form is embedded in the site, it is important to send a test through. Open a web browser and go to the page hosting your form. Enter the form information and press the submit button to send a test through. Once submitted, check your email and verify that the form was submited successfully.
