How to update my downloaded form on my websiteAsked by positpro on November 26, 2013 at 10:28 PM
I'm working on a form that will often need to be update.
I downloaded the sources (js, css etc.) and I did some changes in Dreamweaver to put pictures and make it responsive.
Now I'm trying to update the form by just adding the new fields I created after the integration in Dreamweaver.
I see the fields and I recived them too, but all the conditions are missing. How can I update my form correctely.
Thank you for your support
(excuse my bad english, i'm french)
Unfortunately, the best way to keep the form working is to re-embed the form using the same method. This requires you to start again from the top of your modifications. I would say copy/paste the custom codes added to the form source codes, but not the form fields and the functions.
I'm thinking of another way, this requires a time for you to check. View the updated form source codes:
...then copy all elements that are not present on your current form source codes. I guess this should work, but you should be careful of doing the changes. I still recommend re-embedding your form.
Hey thank you Welvin. I,m not sure I understood your last answer but I found a way to do it faster then re-emdeding the form each time.
Insted of copying and pasting the new fields in the current form I worked on, I copy and paste the head, header and footer to the new form, and copy and paste the old fields I already modify.
This will save me a few (2 or 3) hours each time.
Glad to hear it and thanks for sharing your idea.
Hi Guys, I have another problem.
... Is in conflict with my dropdown menu, and the prettyphoto extension.
Is there a way to fix it?
I believe you are using your form's source code to embed your form. Is that correct? You can add the jQuery.noConflict() code to resolve the conflict issue. Check this for more information: http://api.jquery.com/jQuery.noConflict
Please share your webpage URL where you have embed your form? We will check and help you add this noConflict(); code in your source code. I would suggest you to start a new thread for your question as we can only answer one question per thread.
