d. Re-upload the config.php file to your server
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.
a. Click Submit News
b. Click Edit HTML Source to insert your form code
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
Open a web browser and go to the web page containing your form. Fill out the form and press the submit button to test it.
Common Problems Encountered by Users:
I submit the form and get a form location error.
If you are using myContactForm.com, you will need to login and make sure that you've set the Form Location setting to the proper URL for your form.
a. Login to myContactForm.com
b. Click the Edit Button
c. Click the Basic Form Information Button
d. Enter all variations of the URL where the form will appear. Typically this is the full URL of your web form with and without the www subdomain. You can also use wildcards (*) in this setting. For examples using http://www.mydomain.com/* would allow the form to be placed on any page uploaded to mydomain.com.
