Frontpage Feedback Form
« on: July 04, 2014, 04:50:04 PM »
Since Lunarpages is no longer supporting the Frontpage server extensions, my feedback form no longer will send it's data to my e-mail address.  I'm not using a database to collect info; I just want a viewer to fill out the form and "submit" it to a mailto: address.  Can you suggest how to modify the form? Or, is there an easy server-side alternative?

It's been many years since MS dropped FrontPage, so it's not surprising that LP is no longer supporting it. If you require a FrontPage-like system, MS's follow-on is Expression Web. Dreamweaver is another well-known system. There are also some free ones around, but I don't know if any of them can pick up your existing site. There are also a number of "FormMail" and like modules to email form input in many languages, including PHP and Perl. Look in the PERL/C++ board here on LunarForums to see discussions of various form-to-email modules.

Thanks. But so far, which one is recommended to use? Dreamweaver?

You would have to check with a given product (e.g., DW) whether it can import your old FP files and settings (assuming that's important to you). Then look at the feature list and what they are charging you for the privilege of using it, and make your choice.

If you want to do your entire site anyway with some sort of WYSIWYG HTML page editor, that's one thing. I wouldn't bother buying such a product for only one page -- feedback form-to-email libraries are a dime a dozen, with instructions on how to drop them in to an existing site. You will have to edit files to set up their configuration, so if that's too much for you, you may have no choice but to go with a page editor.
