    A client has asked that an old FrontPage generated form be refreshed to include a capcha script.  I know that FP extensions have been eliminated on many servers so the question is:  Does anyone know of a simple script that will convert the old, complicated FP form to something usable?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately we do not have the script that would convert the FrontPage form to a jotform, but we are happy to assist you in the transition.

    If you have tried our JotForm Builder I am sure that you have noticed how easy and fast it is to create new jotforms no matter how complex they are.

    Do you have a page where we could see the form so that we can give you any suggestions on what you might need to recreate it?

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hi,

    You are welcome :)

    I took a look at the jotform and it seems that it is something you would have working with JotForm Builder in a very quick time :)

    The reason why I say this is that we have the integrations to various payment processors already made for you, so a simple drag and drop is what you need to create the integration - no need for any codding.

    The only thing that will take some time is to transfer the products from your form to the jotform itself.

    I would recommend next guides:

    How to Assign Calculation Value

    How to perform calculation in the form?

    How to pass a calculation to a payment field

    If you want to have several payment processors on your jotform this would be a good guide to check as well:

    How to Create a Basic Multiple Payment form

    Do let us know if you have any questions before, along the way or after setting it up and we would be happy to answer them.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    This looks great Ben.

    I went ahead and stripped out the proprietary FP bot code and imported the remaining html code into JotForm using the import feature.  That has already saved me a lot of time in recreating the extensive fields and individual field content from scratch.  After a successful import, a little massaging with JotForm tools and everything looks like it's going to come together without a hitch.  The hard part appears to be behind me.

    I'll keep you posted....

    Thanks!
