    I wish you posted these requests on separate threads so that e can discuss them separately.

    CSS for the forms should be editable via jotforms.com

    Yes, this is already possible. Click on "Preferences" button on the toolbar. (On "Setup & Share" tab) Then add your CSS code too  "Inject Custom CSS" field.

    also as IE has problems with css via <style> in Facebook, needs it via link tag

    Please send us the URL of the page that has this problem. Please open a separate thread for it.

     

    also the link adress needs to have a increasing version number when changed. Otherwise facebook does not reload the css

    I'm not sure what you mean.

     

    Facebook code export should limit the width to 520px (tab maximum on facebook)

    Thanks. We will do that.

     

    Also it would be usefull to have more options for mail notification. different recipients (with different mail templates) at least on template for a mail send to the user which has submitted a for

     

    You can send emails to different recipients already:

    To change recipient email address on a form, open your form on the Form Builder and then:
    1. Click on "Setup and Share" tab,
    2. Click on "Email Alerts",
    3. Select "Notification",
    4. Click on "Reply-to and Recipient Settings",
    5. Change "Recipient E-mail" on the lower right side.

     

    However, there are no other email templates. I added this to our feature requests list.

    To send an email to form submitter you can setup an "Auto-responder":

    Tahank your for your repsond.

    sorry for not splitting the topics up.

    I just did not want to flood the forum with my topics.

    In respond to the mentioned stuff.

     

    1.) Topic: IE has problems with css via <style> in Facebook, needs it via link tag

    Its nothing depending on a specific page, its common as far as I know that IE does not take css which is set inline via a <style> tag. IE only takes CSS from stylesheets which are external linked , like those which are standard in your export code.

     

    2.) Topic: increasing version number on link for external css

    Facebook itself imports external stylesheets which are linked. It does not load those stylesheets import every time. It caches them.

    To be sure that Facebook does load edited stylesheets, the link needs a version number as apendix.

    Example 1: <link target="_blank" href="http://www.domain.tld/css/forms.css" rel="nofollow noopener" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    Example 2 (when the stylsheet was edited): <link target="_blank" href="http://www.domain.tld/css/forms.css?v=1.1" rel="nofollow noopener" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    This is something which users could also do themself on ther "fbml" settings for facebook page.

    But some users are not very technical. So it maybe would be usefull if you make sure that append this version appendix to stylesheet urls for facebook export.

    3.) Topic: different recipients

    The idea is not to just change the mail adress, the idea is to make it possible to send mails to different persons at once.

    For example a users submited a form. For example a product order.

    So it would be nice to send one mail to account team in the company and another to production team. Each with different styled mail template and information.

    So the account team gets the info on the order with name and so on, so they can check if the customers payed his bill. And the production team gets a mail with just the information which product was ordered and which customer id/order id the product is connected to.

    4.) autoresponder

    Thank you for that link.

    We have tested it on IE. As far as I know inline CSS works fine on IE 7, 8 and 9.

    One of our developers is working on a new code for facebook forms. I sent this to him. We will consider this while creating the new form code.

    Yes, you can create multiple emails, and include different data in them. Simply click on "Add New Email" option when you click on "Email Alerts" button on the toolbar.

     

    Please do not continue this thread. If you still have questions about anything on this thread open a separate thread for that particular topic. Thanks.
