Forms

Make sure the input name="" is the same as the label for="". Include required in the class="" if you want that field to be required for form submission. The fields class is what styles the inputs. The datepicker, addresspicker, and timepicker all rely on jQuery scripts, do not change anything with regards to these three fields. The form action="" needs to be the path to the .txt file you have created and placed in one of your site's folders. That file is what will get emailed out when the form is submitted. These files rely on being transcribed through your cgi-bin. If you are not sure what your path would be, contact ITS. The form method needs to be post and the form id needs to be Form in order for the form validation to work. The value="" in the form submit is the url users will be directed to after they have successful submitted the form. Enter the full path of the page you are sending people to after completing the form.
