How can I use forms with godaddy?

Post by Pablo » Sun Aug 18, 2013 8:04 am

Unfortunately some hosting accounts on godaddy hosting do not support phpmail.
This means that you cannot use the built-in form processor, because it relies on phpmail to send emails.
However you can still use forms created in WYSIWYG Web Builder with godaddy! But instead of using the built-in form processor you will need to use godaddy's own form processor.

Step 1:
Create your form as usual, but do not enable 'use built-in php form processor'!

Step 2:
In the action property of the form enter:
/gdform.php

Step 3:
Make the encoding type property empty.

Step 4:
In 'Hidden fields' add the following fields:
Name: subject
Value: Form Submission
(where 'Form Submission' is the name of the subject)

Name: redirect
Value: thankyou.html
(where 'thankyou.html' is the name of the 'Thank you' page.

Name: email
Value: your@emailaddress.com
(controls the return address for the form email.)

In some cases you may need to use webformmailer.php instead of gdform.php:

Step 1:
Create your form as usual, but do not enable 'use built-in php form processor'!

Step 2:
In the action property of the form enter:
/webformmailer.php

Step 3:
Make the encoding type property empty.

Step 4:
Make sure the form contains an input field (editbox) with the name 'email'.
This is used for the the return address for the email sent by the form.

Step 5:
In 'Hidden fields' add the following fields:
Name: subject
Value: Submission
(where 'Submission' is the name of the subject)

Name: redirect
Value: thankyou.html
(where 'thankyou.html' is the name of the 'Thank you' page. This should be an existing page on the web site!)

Name: email
Value: your@emailaddress.com
(controls the return address for the form email. Note that this can also be a standard input field/editbox on the form)

Name: form_order
Value: alpha

Name: form_delivery
Value: hourly_digest

Name: form_format
Value: html
