Email form construction for web site

Last edited: 2009-10-09

You can contruct an email form using the following variables, for your customers to send you email via your web store. To place a form in any content or category pages, click the "Edit HTML Source" icon of HTML Editor and paste the HTML code of your form to the text area provided. Don't forget to 'Update' the HTML source and then 'Save' the content.

The email form should send to "SendMail+PXdXYWgxR1p1VjJj", using POST method only. You will need to include a javascript script and a captcha placeholder to automatic add security captcha to your email form.

Variable Required Explain/Example
captcha Yes Security code to prevent spamming. A placeholder is required
