cPanel Forms

Adding Forms

In order to gather information as you need, we recommend looking into the cPanel. Once logged into your cPanel, scroll down and look for the programming section, then click the Script Center icon to find the Mail link. This provides an example form and is very similar to what you'll need in place to collect information from your visitors. With some simple editing, your form will be emailing you the info you need/want.

Note: If you need to add an auto-responder, that can easily be accomplished by going to the cPanel and select the Auto Responders icon under the Mail section. Where you install the files, and what you name them is totally up to you. We just provide the space, what you do with it is your call.

Pooling the collected information into a mailing list is another task you'll have to tackle. We have no automated facilities in place for something like that.

For mailing lists, we recommend any of the mailing lists (DadaMail, poMMo, phpList, etc.) that are found in the One-Click Installs icon under the MOJO Marketplace section. Anyone of these can easily be auto-installed.

Change Form Subject

To change the subject of the email sent from Bluehost.com add the following line to your form:

<input type="hidden" name="subject" value="The subject you want">

Character Limit

Each field can contain up to 102500 characters.

Note: You must use Method="POST" for this limit.

Troubleshooting - Not Receiving Results

If you are specifying any email address other than one hosted with Bluehost, the email will not be sent. You need to set the 'sendtoemail' to an email address account setup in your Bluehost cPanel.

Note: You may use an email forwarder instead of an actual email account.
