I am trying to create a Contact Us form on my new [Domain Private] but I am not having any luck. I've check out the info on how to do this, but I still have some questions.

I do not like how the default contact form is set up and I want to make changes to it before I create it. The message I get is that I have to make changes to the Custom Default Text :?: What does this mean? In addition, the Custom Default Text link doesn't appear on my new site in the FBI library. It appears on my [Domain Private], but not on my new one (which currently only has a home page).

What does making changes to the Custom Default Text do? Do I have to include everything I could possibly want on any form in this section? How do I add it to my new site?

Thanks for your help.

This is wording that appears on the other parts of the form, like the thank you page etc. You can ignore this safely.

The form? You build a contact page (just a BB2 page called contact.html), then drag the FBI block into it.

Jacki -
Thanks for responding so quickly. I know that I need to put the form on a new page. My problem is that I can't create the form the way I want it to be set up in FBI. I don't know how to make the changes to the default form so it asks for the information I want.

For instance, the default form asks for address. I don't care about the address and I want to delete this but I don't know how to do this.

Also, I want to to create a text box with a header 'Your Message' but I don't see how I can include the header for this box.

Any ideas?

Glad you figured it out. You can delete any of the items, and also rearrange them by dragging them into the order you want. :D
