    Default custom forms - data collection

    Is it at all possible to add a few links that open a set size window containing an outside page to either the information box or the "more_information" box (which used to be the tutorials) ?

    I'm totally lost look at this code, and how does the window-open javascript get applied??

    Any help would be great as I have two forms that I have to add to my site.

    Wayne,

    are you wanting to just add links to sideboxes? It seems you've already got that working on your site.

    I'm trying to understand what you're trying to accomplish.

    I see this got moved to it's own post, I hope I didn't do something wrong.

    I got close by trying to use a php include that brought in a .inc with the links and the javascript in it but for some reason it would only display above EVERYTHING and if I tried to move it I was getting parsing errors.

    I'm not a php guru by any means so I reverted back and am still lost.

    esentially I'd like one page linked from the (ex-tutorials) sidebox to open up and contain two paragraphs of text and a link per paragraph that would then open up a sized pop-up containing the sign-up forms, this way I can also implement the error and success pages to work when the formfield is submitted.

    Any help by you Zencart Gurus would be greatly appreciated as this is pretty much (hopefully) the last hurdle to this site.

    Cheers :)

    Doc, it's basically the fact that I need to be able to open up two forms in either a new page or a pop-up, I figured a pop-up using content that is kept in my main root folder would be easier, because of the link to the form-to-mail file and also the error and success pages, that way these can all be shown in the same window with no extra coding to accomodate the actual cart.

    My problem is getting a way to open these two forms in two set windows using javascript within one of the pages that I've added to the sidebox.

    Does that make better sense?

    how complicated are these forms in terms of # of fields, layout, color/presentation, etc?

    Here's the first on which is still being worked on, the other will be pretty much the same with a few different fields.

    What I'm thinking is that it could actually be done as a regular Zen Cart page.

    You might want to turn off some sideboxes while it's displayed, or maybe not.

    If it validates, the email is sent.
    If not, then it displays an error.

    THe Contact Us page does that now


    Of course, it'll take a bit of PHP learning, but could use contact_us as a model to start with.

    Hmmm, I kind of understand what you mean but don't have a clue how to implement it.

    The contact us form consists of the following files:

    includes/templates/YOURS/templates/tpl_contact_us_default.php
    This one handles the layout, including all the fields you want to collect info for.
    I'd take out the "SEND_TO_TEXT" one, and set the default like you do in your regular email form.
    Then everything from "ENTRY_NAME" down to "ENTRY_ENQUIRY" would get replaced with your form.

    /modules/pages/contact_us/header_php.php
    This file checks for logic, errors, etc, and if OK, sends the message off to you, by joining all the fields together into the $message variable. It reads info from the form as $_POST['variable'] names.

    /includes/languages/english/contact_us.php
    This contains the display-text variables to be put into your template.
